This is a PowerPoint presentation that was used with my sixth and seventh grade Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students. It was projected onto a white dry-erase board, so that the students could actively participate in the lesson by writing on the slides of the presentation. This presentation could be used with any student reading at the second-grade level. The PowerPoint was created to supplement the story Tara and Tiree which is found in the Scott Foresman Reading Street Curriculum (Level 2.2). The PowerPoint was used during one week of reading instruction. It includes spelling activities, pre-reading activities to build vocabulary and background knowledge, and post-reading activities to assess comprehension.
