This compressed file contains PowerPoint presentations for every Open Court lesson that utilizes word lines, beginning with Unit 1, Lesson 4. The files are organized in 10 folders (one for each unit). Inside each unit folder are the PowerPoints, i.e. Unit 6, Lesson 1, Unit 1 Lesson 2, etc. First grade teachers whose districts use Open Court will find these PowerPoint lessons extremely beneficial in teaching reading. Each sound spelling in a word will appear for 2 seconds and then be followed by the subsequent sound spelling. These lessons are ideal for those teachers who have projectors connected to their classroom computer. They are designed for whole group instruction, but would also work well with small groups with access to a computer. I first completed these lessons in 2012, so check the preview shown here for Unit 6, lesson 11, to make certain these files match your school’s version of Open Court.
I adapted these lessons to make similar lessons on short and long vowels. I have a free sample of one of those lessons to see how they will work in the link below.
