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 SymbolStix Version ( n2y).
This Old Man is a traditional counting song. I typically ‘read-animate’ the page using the song button to ‘re-read/ sing’ the page pointing to the text or symbols as I sing. Students are encouraged to count out the ‘knick-knacks’.
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).
I love using this resource using remote access. If using a SmartBoard you must use remote access as this brand of interactive whiteboard experiences difficulties with the PowerPoint Animations. This does not seem to be a problem with other interactive whiteboards.
