Teaching Letter recognition, developing fine motor skills, and technology skills using this PowerPoint Presentation is easy.
Almost all of the photographs were taken by my three-year-old grand-daughter. She also helped to make the Taxi.
I have included her alphabet pictures that she created with me for each letter of the alphabet. We started with large lima beans to develop the pincer grasp for holding a pencil. Then we went to lentils and tiny lima beans.
Ask parents to send in: rice magazines - to be used to cut out words that have the letter of the week in them, field peas, lima beans, cotton balls, yarn, skittles, M&M and Q-tip swabs
Anything that is small that they can use their thumbs and first fingers to pick up the objects with. Remember that the goal is to teach both the uppercase and lowercase letters at the same time.
We are also including the development of fine motor skills my using the beans and other objects of varying sizes.
Each letter has a link to songs online for that specific letter.
There is a slide that states, “ Put the names of all the students in the class on this slide. Highlight the letter “Ee” in each name. Highlighting in it red for vowels and maybe yellow for consonants will help the students to make the connections between letters and words.
Thank you for purchasing this slide show. There are 454 slides in this PowerPoint. The slides will last for the entire school year, or however long it takes you to teach the letter of the week sequence. The goal is for them to learn the letters of the alphabet as well as they know their names. There is a slide that has hyperlinks to each letter of the alphabet. Each letter sequence also has a black line master. Have students do the letter of the week hunt from the magazine cut outs.
As they pick up the words ask them to say the letters that they see in each word. This will reinforce letters that you have already taught and will probably teach in the future.
