Celebrate winter with an Animated Step-by-Step Song!
Over the years this counting poem (by an unknown author) has made its appearance in many Preschool and Kindergarten classooms. In addition to supporting literacy and counting to 5 it can be used to introduce the concept of subtraction and allows work on colors. An activity promoting an understanding of superlatives (e.g., tallest, shortest, fattest) has also been included in the file.
This animated step-by-step PowerPoint poem is part of an ongoing series of recipes, crafts and poems designed to serve as a vehicle for reinforcing literacy in the classroom. Although content is primarily designed to capitalize on interactive whiteboard technology, it can also be presented on a laptop as an adult-supervised activity center. In addition to the obvious emphasis on literacy, numerous early math concepts can be easily incorporated as ‘teachable moments’. The series is equally beneficial and engaging for classrooms serving regular and/or special education students. Students learning English as a second language can also benefit from these unique resources.
This file was created using PowerPoint 14.3.5 but appears to function fine on earlier versions of PowerPoint. Please note the downloaded file is a read only PowerPoint Show file (97-2004). It should be compatible with PowerPoint versions 97 to current.
