These slides can be used to present and teach Lesson 1 of Unit 1 for the 4th grade Teacher's College Curriculum (Interpreting Characters: The Heart of the Story). Each slide includes the aim of the lesson so students are aware of their goal throughout the entire lesson. Lessons are followed carefully from the "Interpreting Characters" TC book. The last slide contains directions for students to follow during their independent practice. There are fun graphics (Bitmojis) and tips for students throughout the slides. These slides are especially helpful to visual learners. To add your own Bitmoji, download the app and copy and paste yours in. You can search for the Bitmojis I used by typing in a key word related to the specific Bitmoji you would like to replace.
