NEVER BEFORE HAVE YOU SEEN A POWERPOINT LIKE THIS!!!
I have spent at least 7 hours creating this one PowerPoint. WHY? I have a FLIPPED CLASSROOM and understand that students must be engaged in what they see in order to want to learn. My students can't get enough of these highly engaging PowerPoint because they are all ANIMATED with VIDEO CLIPS, and done in a game style format. This can easily be used in any classroom for a fun lesson to teach this content. I also use this as a reference tool for students to continuously refer back to if they need a refresher. This helps differentiate the needs of my diverse learners.
The focus of this lesson is FINDING THE MAIN IDEA in a text. Students will be introduced to MAIN IDEA and trying to find the WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, WHY, HOW in writing. They are engaged because they become this is done in an interactive BOARD GAME type format. Picture clips are embedded inside this PowerPoint that really get the students to focus on the picture and try to figure out the main idea of the picture using the 5 W's. Students then practice with actual text, and reflect upon their learning by create their own working definition of MAIN IDEA, and how to figure it out in a fun and interactive way.
INCLUDED INSIDE THE POWERPOINT:
*Make printables from the PowerPoint slides to help reinforce student learning.
*I can statements to help students focus their learning.
*Hyperlinked screen to help students "jump" to their area of need.
*Challenging journal questions at the end to prove student understanding.
*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.
