Comprehension Strategies – Interactive PowerPoint

Teach Starter Publishing
PowerPoint, PDF | 44 pages | Grades: 3 - 5

An engaging 44 slide interactive PowerPoint to use in the classroom when introducing comprehension strategies.

Use this interactive PowerPoint Presentation as a teaching resource in the classroom to introduce and develop reading and comprehension strategies.

This PowerPoint includes questions for the following strategies:

  • predicting
  • making connections
  • author’s purpose
  • finding the main idea
  • sequencing
  • cause and effect
  • making inferences
  • summarizing
  • fact and opinion
  • recalling facts and details
  • compare and contrast.

As a class, work your way through the problems presented on the 44 slides.

Students choose the correct answer from an option of four. When they select the incorrect answer, the PowerPoint will ‘buzz’, when they select the correct answer, the PowerPoint will ‘chime’ and transition to the answer slide.

Use the answer slide for student sharing and additional learning opportunities.

To activate the interactive functions on this PowerPoint, ensure that you have ‘enabled editing’ and are viewing the PowerPoint as a ‘Slide Show’.

Implement this interactive PowerPoint as a warm-up prior to lessons, or as a daily review when concluding a lesson.

Add new slides and create your own class questions and answers using the editable function on the PowerPoint.

Please note that this PowerPoint is a large file and may take extra time to download.

    I would like to make a suggestion, It would be great if you included worksheets the teacher could give for more practice on each strategy covered in this ppt. Other than that, thank you for a great ppt.
