As an educator, I am very aware of the need to conserve paper while at the same time providing engaging reading comprehension activities that successfully develop my student's reading. As a PowerPoint these reading passages are readily available for use without needing a photocopier.
They are deliberately smaller so that they can be used daily as a part of a morning routine and warm-up. They can also be used for that extra five minutes (that as a teacher you rarely find in the day) of reading comprehension practice.
As an added bonus, by students using their mini whiteboards, exercise books are not needed and students can hold up their answers so that as a teacher you can quickly check their understanding of the strategy.
My students enjoy learning using these passages and even my reluctant readers will engage because the length is not too long.
