As educators, we have worked tirelessly to develop interactive reading strategies that can be used in classrooms with your students. Each PowerPoint that we have created will have students engaged in their own learning. We involve the students by using the Think-Pair-Share strategy where we have them think about a question that relates to their lives, pair with a partner and then share their responses. This is a great way to involve every student each time a strategy is taught.
We also provide the students with definitions of key terms when needed, along with information to help fill their background knowledge on each topic. Below are four FREE PowerPoints that you can use in your classroom right away. Just click on the images to access them!
In each PowerPoint there is a teacher read aloud part where the teacher models the strategy being taught with a book of his/her choice. For fiction PowerPoints, we use our current read aloud book to model the strategies. For nonfiction text, either a classroom magazine (Scholastic News or Time For Kids) or a student textbook work real well.
