For my elementry students I'm just trying to fouc on some essential phrases that they need to know...

Excuse the "post Office" slide...that definitely got a reaction out of them (maybe if your class is too sensitive, you can change the picture)...I just found that this picture made them say "POST OFFICE" much louder...

And for my Korean Elementary would've been a challenge becaus eof the 'f's'

I love how you used the Simpsons for this and others! Motivating and so cute. I've used the Simpsons stuff before and it always works.... Thanks for sharing Shelagh!
I agree with David, Shelagh, I can really see your elementary students responding to this one! Very nice balance of everything- color, humor and meaning.

One thing I don't get- what's wrong with the Post Office slide? That the mouse might get eaten by the cat? Everyone knows the mouse always wins in cartoons : ) ... or did I miss something?
Thanks Ellen and David :-)

The reason why I "excused" the post office slide was because when I played that slide to one of my elementry classes (my youngest ones)...they just started screeming and the girls covered their eyes... :-) ....I'm sure deep down they were laughing :-)
That's so cute! Where did you learn to make such creative Powerpoints? I wish I knew how do these sort of Powerpoints.
The challenge is that my computer is all in Korean :-) it involves a lot searching :-)

BUT the trick for the moving/animated things are....when I search google images...I often search under clip-art...then I add in animated...for me, it makes it look a bit more interesting (it really isn't as fancy as it looks!...anyone can do it!)

for example...if I want a moving cat...I'll type under google images (clipart): cat + animated ...usually soemhing wil come up....Believe it or not, I'm not a computer genius at makes me look much better at PowerPoint than I actually am :-) ...but thank you anyway :-)
Shelagh, what a dummy I am! I didn't even know it was animated! I just clicked through the slides, and did not run it as a slide show. WOW, even more impressive, girl! AND, I understand about the Post Office now! :D

I learn something new everyday!
I am inspired by your power point.
I also like the tip about searching google images (clipart):something + animated
I would like to share some stuff but I'm still a little shy to the community and I think my ppts are not up to par yet.
I looked in the "sharing" section of discussions and found a lot of good stuff.
Is there a discussion about power-points used for class instructions?

don't be shy! Yes, that is a great tip and such a simple thing others don't think about. I also search for + gif Gif photos being the more user friendly for presentations.

There really has never been a discussion on the forum about powerpoints specifically. Why not start one? I get oodles of messages/emails and questions about power points would cover a large percentage of them. Lots that can be done with ppt that until someone shows/tells, many don't know...
