ENGAGE your students and KEEP their attention by using multimedia to teach!
Need something to motivate your students to learn their letter/sounds, phonics, word families, and word work? How about a chant that explains why they need to do the activity. Children learn best when they understand the why behind it all. And of course it is fun to have a contest too. How about boys against the girls? Readers' Theater in parts?
This is a .mov file that can be opened with Quick Time on your computer. You no longer have to worry about syncing a power point with the song and setting the timing. It is ready to use on your students'computers or interactive whiteboard. You can use it with your Smart Board and pause during the slides to highlight words, letters, or strategies.
