Prezi is similar to a PowerPoint in that they are both presentation tools, but that is where their similarities end.
Prezi Presentations are created on a "canvas" rather than on "slides". This helps to encourage focusing on combining text, pictures and video clips. Items on the canvas can be dragged, tilted, and zoomed to create an engaging look that really grabs students‚ attention. Prezi Presentations are also FANTASTIC for hitting many learning styles at once (especially if you include video clips and pictures like I do)
I personally like incorporating Video clips in my Prezis as much as possible (the kids enjoy that as well). I think it is also beneficial for students to see the literary elements we discuss in class brought to life in video clips and in pictures.

Download this Prezi and see what it is all about!
This Prezi is a Context Clues Prezi
I discuss what context clues are and how to make them.
Students practice with paragraphs and fun sentences.
As a final test there is a video clip that reads "Jabberwocky" and students are asked to decipher the poem (this works surprisingly well!)
There are also funny video clips spread throughout that the kids really enjoy!
I have updated this to include a handout for students to use to follow along with the prezi
**Note: I have updated this prezi so it was too large to house on TPT so upon download you will receive a link to the prezi online. You can use the link as it, or you can download it! This gives you the ability to edit as you wish.
Please TYPE the link as it is written. Clicking or copying and pasting the link will not work as it adds in extra characters.
