Want to jazz up your Open House or Back-to-School night? This interactive Powerpoint is a great way to do just that! This Powerpoint has timings and it is on a "loop" function so all you need to do is open it up and let it run while your kids and parents are arriving. Parents and kids have something to do while you get around to everyone. They love this! Every slide is interactive and/or animated and there are lots of fun images to connect text to pictures.
Here are some of the fun activities in this powerpoint:
*Guess the word - letters fly in and the children try to guess the word before the last letter is placed
*Riddles - fun kid centered riddles for them to solve
*Missing numbers - what numbers come next in the sequence
*Read the word - students see the first letter slide in from the right and then a chunk from the left. Blend the sounds together to read the word
*Unscramble the word - letters are jumbled up...can you figure out the word?
*What am I? - every few seconds a piece of the puzzle is removed...see who can guess what it is first!
*Map skills - both the USA and World Map are shown to see if they can locate where they live
*What shape am I? - watch as lines connect to see what shape appears
*Float or sink - make a guess and then watch to see if the ball floats or sinks
*Patterning - what shape comes next in the pattern?
*Time - what time is on the clock...figure it out before "time" runs out
Have fun using this every year during your Back-to-School and Open House event!
