SAVE by buying bundled PowerPoints for Reading Street UNIT 1 (all 5 weeks!). **I use the 2011 Common Core Edition of Reading Street.**
These are PowerPoints that I created to help engage my students during our Reading Street time. They are great for Days #1 and #2 (that is the primary focus), but are easy to reuse throughout the week to review. They also help keep my teaching pace moving and make Reading Street a more interactive discussion, rather than a lecture (or feeling like you're 'talking at students').
The PowerPoints are around 23 slides each and includes detailed information about the "Question of the Week", "Amazing Words", Lesson Vocabulary, Reading Comprehension targets, and "Word Analysis".
There are lots of fun animations and guiding questions to promote class discussions (not just you reading).
They can also be used to help prepare students for the Weekly Test.
**NOTE about Unit 1 Week 3: You may notice that two of the vocabulary words (ruffled and bristled) have modified definitions on their slides. This is because I distribute a guide sheet to the students each week. I dislike the definition it gives them, so I use the better (in my definition) with them because the new definitions fit the Weekly Test question better. This "guide sheet" is one that is made by Reading Street- so you may even be using it yourself too.**
These are "pptx" files, so please be sure you have the appropriate application for the files to operate correctly. I also enjoy using fun fonts- occasionally, you may not have the same font installed on your computer which may cause minor formatting changes.
