This is a SmartNotebook file (but can be imported to ActivInspire - Promethean Software). The information in these slides comes directly from the Second Grade ReadyGen Teacher's Guide and is not my original content. I like to use these slides to support my instruction. For anyone that has used ReadyGen, you know how overwhelming the Teacher's Guide can be! :) These slides breakdown the lessons into manageable pieces.
I break the lesson slides down into parts: the read aloud, the close read, turn and talk, writing in response to reading. I have also included writing lessons in this product. There are several writing slides per lesson. They include: the mini-lesson, the breakdown or preparation of writing, a teacher's model, and independent writing practice steps.
There are 82 slides in total. There are sections of the Teacher's Guide which are left out simply because I do not feel that they are relevant to the PBA (performance based assessment) and time does not allow for them. My students enjoy seeing the apple-themed clip art as they learn about John Chapman, better known as Johnny Appleseed.
For those who do not have ReadyGen, these slides will provide endless questions and writing responses using the books Seed by Seed and Johnny Appleseed (which is a ReadyGen supporting text but they can usually be found elsewhere online.) The writing in this unit is predominantly opinion writing. You may notice that I refer to the OREO model to help students remember what should be included when writing an opinion piece.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns. I am more than happy to assist you!
