This resource MUST be opened in Powerpoint. It is animated so you will be required to play this slide using the slideshow tab across the top. Please do not edit the individual slides or the animations and formatting might alter. If this does happen, just delete the document from your computer and redownload it from TPT. These slides are designed to assist you when teaching the sounds s, a, t, p, i, n. It relies heavily on sounds and focuses primarily on listening for beginning sounds.
PLEASE NOTE: I have opened this on many PC computers, but yet to do so on a MAC as I have not had access to this. If you have a MAC and you download it, let me know please asap if anything is not working!!!
Most of the slides require a click, and this is so you can work through as fast or slow as you desire. They are not designed to all be done in one day. You can copy and paste them into your own powerpoint, using the slides that are relevant for your explicit teaching for that day. You might like to add additional slides such as new words to read, sight words that your school uses or some links to some phonemic awareness games on the internet. These are just a few ideas to suit the many different spelling programs schools use. This is not designed to teach your students sounds, but to support your program and add some interactive fun to your spelling program.
There are many short games included in this pack. When students start school, I have found short and sharp activities work best to keep them engaged. These are designed to be played as a whole class and lost of discussions and talking should happen when using them.
Each slideshow is designed to be used over a few weeks to reinforce each set of sounds.
Students will need to use workbooks or whiteboards to record sounds and work on
