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.
There are three versions of each resource. This is the Picture Communication Symbol 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
Old MacDonald with a twist! … a guessing game … and a song!
This version of Old MacDonald encourages students to guess the animal based on hearing its sound. A second click then opens the barn door to reveal the mystery animal.
Was your guess correct?
As is the case with most ASbySs, the page is first read and animated. If using a symbol-supported version, the symbols are added AFTER the page is read (encouraging a ‘literacy first’ agenda). As a final step, the Facilitator can activate the music button (upper right corner) and provide symbol-support while singing the page.
