Identifying Upper and Lowercase Letters ~ PowerPoint Show

I have a new PowerPoint show available in the Members Only section, focusing on identifying upper and lowercase letters. There is a slide for each letter like this…Upper Lowercase ABCs a

It pops up just like that and you have your child identify the upper case letter in the box and the object, to touch on beginning sounds {although that is not the focus of this show}. 

Then ask your child to show you the matching lowercase letter, in this case, “where is the lowercase a?”  After your child points to it, you begin clicking through and the wrong letters begin to disappear until only the lowercase a is left.  In this fashion, it is self correcting and encouraging, focusing on the RIGHT answer in a simple and exciting way for a younger child.  If your child got it wrong, you can correct in a fun and positive way!

After that slide there is a basic slide as shown below, to give your child one more view of the upper/lowercase letters together for reinforcement.Upper Lowercase ABCs b

CVC Words ~ PowerPoint Show

This is a PowerPoint show that breaks down simple 3 letter CVC words. Words included: cat, dog, bus, web, bed, hat, pig, fan, rat, pen. Target audience would be beginning readers who are just learning to segment sounds in words.

Simple CVC Words

Each letter appears individually to emphasize each sound. Then the word blends and with a click the image appears to self correct the student!

Here is a simple video of me walking you through part of the show as I do it with Krash. Forgive my very unprofessional video making skills.

Solar System PowerPoint ~ Members Only

I am so excited about this new PowerPoint show, based on the 8 planets in our solar system!

Solar System MO Button

I created this show to go along with my free printable unit

Solar System Preschool Pack

The show goes through the 8 planets both in size order and then in order from the sun.  There is also a slide for each planet sharing some basic facts about each. At the end there are 2 slides-one for inner planets, one for outer planets.  The show ends with a Bible verse.

Here is a video of us walking you through part of the show.  This was the first time I showed the show to the boys, we will work with it much more getting Pac Man to the point of him reciting he facts himself and then using the show to check himself.

You will notice we are viewing the show up on our wall!  This is because we finally saved enough to buy a projector for our schoolroom!  We have wanted one for awhile and were just able to buy it!  My techy husband rigged it all up for me and now we also play our Wii using the projector!

Ordinal Numbers 1st-5th ~ PowerPoint Show

I am finally getting around to sharing the various PowerPoint shows that are available to my PowerPoint members, in addition to the Raising Rock Stars Preschool shows and the USA Geography show.  Those are the 2 big sets, but there are also several individual shows that I have never shared much about!

This is a simple show that works on teaching and reinforcing ordinal numbers 1st-5th.  Target audience would be about ages 3-5.

Ordinal Numbers

Here is a simple video of me walking you through the show quickly.  Obviously if I were doing it with a child, I would go much slower!

Included also is a set of simple printables that can go along with teaching this concept.  You can use the printables to go up through 10th if your child has mastered 1st-5th.  I included the words first-second-third… also in case your child is really doing well with this concept.

USA Geography Power Point is FINISHED!

I have been working on the USA Geography PowerPoint for a long time now.  I am very pleased to say, it is finished!  When I began, I didn’t realize how much work it would entail to get the whole show completed, but months later-I am finally done.  Thanks to a retreat I went away on, and having to sit outside of Ladybug’s room while she napped-I found the time to finish it!USA MASTER

The show is located in the Members Only section of my website, which is where I host the RRSP PowerPoint shows as well as others.  If you are already a member-you can now access all of the states, if you are not a member yet, you can join here!

You can read my first post introducing the USA Geography PowerPoint here, you can see all of my geography posts here.

If you want to see the USA show in action, you can watch this brief video here showing it in action with my boys.  Please forgive the shaky camera action, it is really hard to tape myself while working with them ;-), I need another person to follow me around!

I hope this resource will be a simple way for us to help our children master basic US Geography-capitals, abbreviations, and location of all states!  I am relearning a lot too! 

Musings of Me is doing a neat unit with free printables called “Trekking Across the States” that I think would be a great fit with this PowerPoint show!  Confessions of a Homeschooler is creating an entire unit for US Geography also, “Road Trip Across the USA” which would also be a great partner to this show when Erica releases it!  I love all of the moms online creating resources in different formats so we can all work together to find the best learning materials for our kids!  I pray my resources and others will bless you on your journey!
