These slides are editable so you may use a book of your choice if you prefer! I find that teaching my lessons digitally (instead of simply writing on an anchor chart) allows my students to be more engaged, and I can include fun photos, videos in order to enhance the lessons, and can save my lessons from year to year! Enjoy these slides and if you have any questions please feel free to send me a message through TpT!
