Morning work? End of the day wrap-up? Crazy 10 minutes in your schedule? This resource will fit in almost any part of your day for your kids to practice. This PowerPoint allows your students to practice the alphabet in a fun and engaging way. This resource focuses on the initial sound (beginning sounds). This is the third set of beginning sounds for this series.
This interactive powerpoint includes 26 words.
Want to see it in action? Here’s how it works: Check out this video! This one spells out letters, but should give you an idea.
– the PowerPoint comes in 3 versions (automatic transitions, manual and one that stops on the spelling)
– the PowerPoint will transition through an introduction and then into a picture followed by showing the correct initial sound letter
– the picture pauses for 12 seconds to allow the students time to write on their whiteboard, writing app on a device or plain paper
– students can call out each letter/picture as it appears
– dependent upon which PPT you use, it will either proceed to the next picture or wait for you to manually click it to the next picture
– the wait time is great to allow students to notice and correct an error. It is also a great time to talk about the correct spelling and cheer for errors and correct spellings. (cheer for errors to encourage writing)
The slide will end when finished. You can leave this on your computer for them to work independently or with a partner during centers/Daily 5 time. All you have to do is teach them how to start the slideshow. This PPT cover 15 letters (vowels and consonants).
For Distance Learning, this resource now includes a video of the automatic PowerPoint. You can share the link with your students/parents in a CLOSED LMS setting. You cannot share this link with anyone outside your class, online or any other setting. If you have questions, please ask.
