Red, White and Blue:
To introduce English Language Arts units from Open Court (K-Red,
White and Blue, 2-Our Country and Its People) or K-1 H/SS standards
about patriotism and symbols of the United States. The teacher
would type the following keywords in the Search field of the database,
download appropriate images resulting from the hits, and import
images into a PowerPoint presentation. The teacher would then
add short captions using the vocabulary words and concepts that
align to the adopted text curriculum or grade level content standards.
Teachers could then introduce concepts and vocabulary using the
PowerPoint, stopping to discuss images and vocabulary with students.
In addition, teachers could narrate the presentation and have
it available to students in work centers where students could
play the presentation and listen to the narration using headphones
as an independent activity.
