I did this lesson on International Talk Like a Pirate Day. After the PP, I had my students write three types of sentences using commas; dialogue, listing and when inserting information. Of course they had to use Pirate vocabulary in their sentences! The PP grabbed their attention immediately. I would only suggest using a laser pointer to point out where the commas are, as the fun font can be a bit distracting.

Wish it was a bit longer with a few more in depth details but what is there is good.
Very nice work! Con't wait to use it with my class next month.

Students loved the interactive power point.

This was written by a teacher? I had to go through and fix so many mistakes that I might as well have done it myself. It was supposed to save me time. I'd like my money back. The lettering was too big for the slides and the flow makes no sense at all. The word too is misused. It's a big mess.
You clearly have no idea what you are talking about. First, The lettering is not an issue with the Power Point. Your computer does not have the font that it was created with. It is called, "Cracked" and you can download it from the microsoft website. Most versions of ppt have it already. Second, have you ever heard a pirate talk? They use broken English. If you are referring to mistakes in the interactive quiz - THEY ARE SUPPOSE TO BE THERE! The whole idea is for the kids to find the mistakes! I've actually received a good deal of great feedback on this power point. I did find the "too" mistake and I corrected it. Would you be so kind (not) as to tell me what is wrong with the flow? Happy Teacher Appreciation Day.
I had the same problem too with the font not converting thus the words not fitting....but I minimized the fonts and everything looks great! I do need to brush up on my pirate accent, but my students were engaged the whole time I taught this lesson....very cute idea....thanks so much!

Please look at this. I spent a very long time fixing it! There are items all over the place. Some that don't even belong on the page and some that don't even show up on the page.
This is not an issue with the Power Point. Your computer does not have the font that it was created with. What version of Power Point are you using? You should download the font called, "Cracked" and it will work fine. I'm surprised and disappointed for the low rating for something that was not my fault.
This is probably because you don't have the font I used to create it. It uses a font called, "Cracked" it is on most versions of ppt but not some older versions. You can go to microsoft and download the font. (it's free) or you can email me at email@example.com and I will send you a version that does not use that font. Your comments on the feedback were rude and I did not appreciate it.
