NEVER BEFORE HAVE YOU SEEN A POWERPOINT LIKE THIS!!!
We have spent at least 16 hours creating this one PowerPoint. WHY? We understand that ALL teachers want an engaging classroom, but time is always an enemy. Students must be engaged in what they see in order to want to learn. Our students cannot get enough of this highly engaging PowerPoint because of its SILLY MOVEMENTS, ANIMATIONS, and VIDEOS. This can easily be used to turn learning about “FLASHBACKS” into an engaging activity. We use this as a reference tool for students to continuously refer back to if they need a refresher. This activity helps differentiates the needs of our diverse learners because they evaluate themselves throughout the learning activity.
INCLUDED INSIDE THE POWERPOINT:
*Highly engaging and interactive game formatted PowerPoint which gets students moving around and doing funny movements depending on how they answer questions.
*Students are captivated by the video clips, the discourse between each other to understand what “flashback” means.
*Student handout about types of flashbacks authors use, and a self-assessment sheet to measure their understanding of this concept.
*Student Practice: Students are given practice opportunities to help them reinforce their learning.
This is an ADVANCED POWERPOINT and works for computers that have PowerPoint Version 2010 or 2012.
Due to the large file size I could not get the videos and animations to work on the preview. They will all work on the purchased versions though.
Having a challenge getting students to understand the vocabulary surrounding “Flashbacks”? This vocabulary is crucial to improving comprehension and is also included in the Common Core and MAPs testing. This lesson/activity WILL help your students succeed!
Differentiation happens because students can keep track of the words that they miss, and work on those words to improve their understanding of “Flashbacks”.
Projector (Interactive Board is preferable)
If you have reviewed flashbacks, or are about to start a figurative language unit, this game could be used in both cases. Simply put the game on your Interactive Whiteboard and begin the game on slide four. Simply follow along with each PowerPoint slide. Students will have chances to have discourse between each other and share out as a whole class. During this time, they will monitor their understanding using a self-assessment sheet. Fun and silly activities keep the students extra engaged!
