    This product includes both the PowerPoint Lesson Slides and Activity Packet for "The Buffalo Are Back?" Module 2 Lessons 1-5.

    The PowerPoint Slides Include:

    This PowerPoint directly follows Wit and Wisdom's Grade 2 Module 2 (Lessons 1 - 5) using the book "The Buffalo Are Back." It is editable and is helping us teach our class step by step without having to hold our book through the entire lesson. Some charts in the slide can be typed into directly and saved to go back to when needed later in the module. You can add additional slides where needed and take out slides you don't think are necessary. I am currently using and editing this PowerPoint to fit our second grade needs. It has been a wonderful resource to help keep pacing on track in our classrooms! I have included teacher notes at the bottom of most slides, which can be printed along with the slides for easier sequencing and pacing of the lessons. It has truly been a LIFESAVER for me!! It alleviates the need to carry around the teacher's manual or constantly refer to it while trying to find your place.
