PowerPoint Center- 23 Online reading activities offering a variety of reading levels for students from about grades 3-6. A variety of readings from short stories to poetry to cultural stories and graphic novel type stories.
The "Hot Buttons" work like a website- students click the link to get to the slide, click the picture to get to the story/poem (etc), and then can click the "home" button to get back to slide 1. There is also a rubric on the last slide for students to see how their work will be graded.
Great for centers- assign students a number to complete. Also great for those students who finish early. They can work through the 23 reading activities that involve a reading and a related writing prompt. Those activities that require headphones are indicated with a headphones symbol on the slide so students are aware before they begin.
Be aware that I am not responsible for any particular site that might be blocked at your school although I feel that most if not all should be OK. Also be aware that some sites have advertising and ALL material should be reviewed by the teacher before engaging in student use.
