My school recently got rid of it’s Language Arts curriculum altogether. Needless to say, over the last year I’ve drastically changed the way I teach literacy. All of a sudden I needed a go too for the theme of my daily mini lessons, before my students headed into their centers. I turned to the Common Core Standards, and began creating PowerPoint presentations for each day’s mini lesson. It’s been a transition, but I really love my new literacy block. I also love targeting each days lesson to a specific common core standard. I created this free PowerPoint lesson on RL 2.1 Asking and Answering Questions as well. It’s a fun and interactive lesson.
I hope that your students enjoy it as much as mine do.
