This file is designed for kindergartners and first graders that need additional practice in understanding the function of letters. It begins with a central concept. That concept is "Parts to Whole". Without a firm foundation of this concept, children will confuse letters, words and sentences.
Animated media files are included! Each of these media files are less than 1 minute in duration. The animated files demonstrate the concept of parts into whole by building a bear, a snowman, and then a word. After each of the animations, the children will have an opportunity to try it themselves. The animations include:
1. Building a "Teddy" Bear
2. Making a snowman
3. Using letters to make a word.

To engage ALL students with the "Build-A-Teddy" activity, I have included a link to a FREE printable PDF for making a paper bear within the file. There is also a link to the bear pattern at the end of this description.
3 flash games are included. The flash games require the children to make words using letters. The flash games used are:
1. Anagram - 5 words
2. Word biz - 6 words
3. Word Guess - 5 words
There is a letter-word sorting activity. Additionally, there is an extension activity in which words are used to build a sentence.
This file can be used as a response to intervention activity and will be easy for students to use on their own once you have completed an introduction to the slides.
