Current events are so important! They are something all teachers should use as a material in the classroom – to foster knowledge of the world, practice writing, improve reading and so much more!

Teachers can use the presentation to prompt students and discuss these events. (paid members can download all books as pptx and also get all the pdf lesson packs related to each book). Here’s a sample of what you get – handy news graphic organizers.
