Grammar 1 ~ PowerPoint Show

I have a new PowerPoint show available in the Members Only PowerPoint section, featuring  Grammar. The show is based on PacMan’s 4th grade grammar curriculum, from his first several lessons.  I hope to make more of these throughout the year, as I know they are great teaching tools and even better review tools.

Slide1

Each slide is animated {although you can’t see that here in the screenshots}.  The answer is hidden to allow thinking and then pops up on a click for immediate self correction.

Slide2 Slide3 Slide4 Slide5Slide6 Slide7 Slide8 Slide9

In the subject/predicate section, the subjects and predicates change color to blue and red upon the click to show self-correction.

PacMan used this show to review for his lesson 20 assessments and told me it was VERY helpful. Winking smile

Understanding RRSP, YCR, and MO

This post was originally written in September 2011, and was updated in February 2012.


I know, I know…I have weird names and sometimes things on my site are hard to understand. It seems that the paid items I offer tend to be the most confusing and I can understand why. I hope this post explains a bit more about what they are and include.

#1 Members Only PowerPoint Section {often referred to as MO}

1 members only2

The MO section should have a better name, I know. When I launched it, I was new and just came up with a generic name. In hindsight, I should have been more specific and named it something like POWERPOINT SHOWS. I think it would cause even more confusion if I changed the name now, so I will just keep explaining it to new people!

The Members Only PowerPoint section is $15 to join and is a LIFETIME membership. There is no recurring fee. It is a one time payment and then you have access to a link/password and can download any shows I create. I have a details page showing you exactly what is there currently.

In addition to the PP shows, there is a section where the RRSP {Raising Rock Stars Preschool} lessons are linked up, and there is an entire series of PowerPoint shows just for RRSP. This is where the confusion comes in. Many people think the MO section is the RRSP section. It just hosts the PowerPoint shows for RRSP.

So in a nutshell think POWERPOINT SHOWS when you think Members Only!


#2 You Can Read Ad-Free/Bonus Section {abbreviated YCR, sometimes just called “ad-free”}

You Can Read Button 200x200

This section was developed as a way to offer the You Can Read Units earlier than I was using them. I normally don’t offer my units for free until my children have used them, but I knew not everyone would go on my schedule. I thought up the ad-free/bonus section because of this.

Currently all of the YCR units are done, which include 18 base sight word units + color words and number words. There are also several bonus items which are only available on the ad-free bonus page. I have many units available for free, you can see those here.

There is also the option to download all of the units and extras in a bundled format.  This is NOT  an additional charge-there is a link at the top of the private download page for the bundle, and also links to items individually on the page.

The You Can Read Ad-Free/Bonus Section is $10, and is also a one time fee. You get a link/password and can save it and come back to download at any time. You will also have unlimited access to any bonus YCR items I add in the future!


#3 RRSP Download Bundle {Raising Rock Stars Preschool}

RRSP Bundle Collage

This is my most recent addition and is basically a glorified and simple version of the printable RRSP units. I worked hard to bundle them up in a neat and organized folders and also added several bonus printables to the new download bundle! You can see details about the bonus materials that were added here.

The RRSP Download Bundle is $10 and with the one time fee you get a link/password where you can download your 2 folders {1 for base units and 1 for extras}. I will also add any other bonus printables to this webpage so you can come back in the future.

There is a RRSP Bundle DISCOUNT available in the Members Only section. So, if you join the MO section, you can then purchase the RRSP Bundle for just $8.

All base RRSP units are available for FREE here, just scroll down until you see the blue section with the letters in it!


#4 RRSK Bundle Download is COMING SOON!

RRRSK header copy

I am releasing the Kindergarten version of RRSP this year and will release the printable units for free as Krash completes them. I am working ahead and will offer the bundle download when I get it complete.

Currently I have an early release option for $8.00, which contains units that are complete beyond what I offer for free currently.  You can see the option to purchase access on the RRSK webpage.  Once the bundle is complete, you will also be able to download it at no additional cost.


#5 Animal ABC 

Animal ABC Button

I offer the new Animal ABC program in a bundled format for $10.  You get access to all files, plus future access to any extras I add.  All links to files are added to the private download page and you can come back at any time to download anything new I add.

Files for Animal ABC are offered one by one for free as they are released on the Totally Tots blog.  This program was developed for the Now I Know My ABCs feature on Totally Tots.  Free files available are located on the main Animal ABC page, just scroll down to see them!



Why sell anything?

Why not give it all for free as a majority of my printables are {Preschool Packs, Tot Packs, Clip & Learn, Montessori Printables, Preschool Printables, Kindergarten Printables, Tot School Printables, & more}?

I believe 100% in giving as much as I can away for free in order to serve others. When my blog began to grow years ago, and take time away from my family, my husband and I prayed about what to do. At the time I was studying the Proverbs 31 woman using this awesome study guide book. We prayed for a long time and then ventured into learning about selling a few things online to supplement our missionary income. We felt this was where God was leading us and we have been truly blessed! My blog is both a service to others and a service to my family by alleviating some of the financial strain that we have been through in the past. My blog is something my entire family gets excited about and is on board with. Especially my husband and my oldest son!

If you are in a financial situation that makes you completely unable to consider paying for any of my paid items, but you feel they would benefit your family…please email me. I don’t want anyone to be without something that could help their family.


I hope that helps you understand what I sell, why I sell it, and what you will get when you make a purchase!

PS-If you have ANY problems downloading or printing any of my PDF files, please see my FAQ section and be sure to go to the Facebook link in the last bullet point for troubleshooting tips. I get emails about this almost daily! I don’t mind helping you, but it usually takes me awhile to get back to you and I don’t want anyone to be frustrated!

Living & Nonloving Things ~ PowerPoint Show

I have a new PowerPoint show available in the Members Only PowerPoint section, featuring  Living & Nonliving Things. The show is based on PacMan’s 4th grade science curriculum.

Slide1

 

It is fully animated, showing answers upon clicks.  First we review the 5 basic life functions that help determine if something is living or not.Slide2

 

Next we review what living things are made of and list in the order from simple to complex…Slide3

 

Finally we review by categorizing living and nonliving things. I took the examples from his text and assessments and honestly we were all thrown by the virus example.  I had to do some research on that one, we {a few adults who were over at the time} all thought a virus was living.  According to his science book it is not.  Learn something new everyday when homeschooling!

Slide4  Slide5

Fun side note-I took all of the photos on the opening slide while we were camping recently!!!  He loved seeing photos he recognized in his schoolwork!

With Calvert PacMan takes an assessment every 20 lessons.  These shows are used as his review before he takes the assessment.  He also has to take standardized testing at the end of this year for science and I plan to use the shows to review for this in the end!  He is using this text for Calvert 4th grade science. This particular show was created to go along with the Plant & Animal Cell show…

Plant & Animals Cells PowerPoint

I have a new PowerPoint show available in the Members Only PowerPoint section, featuring  Plant & Animal Cells. The show is based on PacMan’s 4th grade science book.

Slide1

It is fully animated, showing answers upon clicks.  First there is a matching portion.  The little star pops up for the word that is to be matched.  On a click, the word moves over to the correct statement on the right.Slide2

There is a plant cell labeling activity…Slide3

and an animal cell labeling activity.Slide4

At the end there is a true/false section.  The statements pop up one by one and then go back and highlight green for true and red for false with the false statements being corrected by the blue boxes appearing one at a time.Slide5

I plan to make a few review shows for him for his science, if this one goes over well.  With Calvert he takes an assessment every 20 lessons.  The shows are used as his review before he takes the assessment.  He also has to take standardized testing at the end of this year for science and I plan to use the shows to review for this in the end!  He is using this text for Calvert 4th grade science.

Bob Books PowerPoint Show

I have a new PowerPoint show available in the Members Only section, featuring words from Bob Books.

Bob Books Reading PowerPoint

 

Krash has been enjoying the Bob Books, which are a great partner to the You Can Read program.  The Bob Books pull in phonics, while the You Can Read works on high frequency words and recognizing by sight.

We use this show to work on sounds and blending, he enjoys that the words are directly from his Bob Books.  You will see I color coded the slides by book and put a little teacher note in the bottom right corner so you know when to stop the show {not going beyond books your child has read.

I also want to mention a wonderful blog which is entirely focused on teaching reading using Bob Books, she actually helped me behind the scenes a bit.  There is a link to her blog on the first slide also.

This show features words from the first set of Bob Books, 1-7.  Books 8-12 will be in another show coming soon!

You can access this show in the Members Only section of my website.  If you are not a member already, you can learn more info here.  See what is in the Members Only section now and what is coming soon here!
