Hey awesome readers! Hope your school year is off to a good start. I'm about 6 weeks in and finally starting to feel like I can breathe. Anyway, I want to share with you a foolproof method to getting your students comfortable (and even independent) in using Microsoft PowerPoint.
This is ideal for 2nd or 3rd grade students who are capable of reading (to find the right places to click) and enjoy learning by video. It starts with an instructional video and PPT template for adding slides and changing slide layouts.
The next lesson has them learn to change the font, color, size, etc. for each prompt. There is an adorable little graphic to help them choose the type of font and the color scheme. This could also be a good time to talk about design (what colors look good together). Again, instructional video, PPT template, voila!
So how do you get your hands on these? Click here for the 3-lesson beginners unit. If you want it all, click here for the 14 lesson unit.
Thank you so much for reading, friends. What projects do you like to do in PowerPoint? Let me know!
