One of my favorite teachers requested on of her favorite poem, Eletelephony, be made into an Animated Step-by-Step. Not surprizing …. given her name is Catherine Elefonte! : ) Eletelephony is a great poem for working on an literacy agenda. The poem may be a bit dated relative to the technology depicted in the resource but it's pretty hard for an elephant to get it's trunk tangled in a Smart phone! Might be time for a history lesson on the evolution of the telephone.
Animated Step-by-Steps® are animated PowerPoints designed to address literacy, language, AAC and a host of academic goals. Each page includes a series of animations. Read the text up to the star … click … and see an animation of what you just read.
The poem is first read in it's entirety and then with each page students are invited to guess the rhyming mystery word.
There are three versions of this resource (Regular, PCS, SymbolStix).
This is the PCS Version ( Tobii-Dynavox).
This resource can be displayed on the 'big screen' (interactive whiteboard, large screen TV using Apple TV) or the 'small screen' (computer monitor, iPad/Android tablet using the free Microsoft PowerPoint app). Please visit the Animated Step-by-Steps blog for further information on the creative use of these educational resources. http://animatedstepbysteps.blogspot.com
