This powerpoint is a great way to teach school item vocabulary to students who are new to English. Each slide has a photograph and the text has the word "the" and the content vocabulary. In addition, I have translated each term in the notes section of each slide into Spanish and French. The first line in the notes is in Spanish; the second line is in French.
You can use it as a powerpoint presentation to do as a shared read; put the file in a cloud and read on an iPad like an ebook; print out the slides to read as a traditional book; or print the slides out as a handout (6 slides per page), cut an index card in half to use as a cover, and staple them together for students to have a mini book that they can take home or read to a partner. My newcomers really enjoy having something that they can read without help in English during Daily 5 when they have to work with a partner.
