Your students will love this interactive PowerPoint spelling activity to study their spelling words.
First print a mat for each student. The mat comes in two pages. I laminated my pages side-by-side so that I can easily fold them for storage. Make your mallets by cutting a pool noodle into sections and attaching a pencil for a handle. One pool noodle should make about 14 mallets.
Next open the PowerPoint file. I have provided 15 pages. If you wish to add more pages, select the page view and click on the page and go to edit and select duplicate. By duplicating the slide, you will be sure that the animation and transitions work with the new slides. If you have too many pages, then select the page and select edit and delete page.
When you are ready to begin the activity, go to "Slide Show" and select "play from start." The animations will play automatically. The PowerPoint will run almost 9 minutes for the 15 pages provided.The mallet will slowly move until it reaches the mole. The mole will then slowly sink off the page. Then the next page will then transition in.
The timer is set to allow for students to be successful. I challenge my students that finish early to whack out the word again and again.
