This is one PowerPoint presentation you won't sleep through.
Holly Simon is a freshman at the University of Michigan, and is one of the few first-year students that earned the right to participate in the University's America Reads Tutoring Corps program.
Holly developed an incredibly engaging PowerPoint deck for her elementary-aged students. Her interactive system helped her students practice reading sight words, review the present and past tense forms of words, manipulate word chunks and more.
While Holly's strategy is great for its intended purpose, our favorite aspect of this resource is that it's so flexible. If you're familiar with creating PowerPoint presentations, you can edit her file and turn it into a game to help your students practice math skills, study for a vocabulary test, and much, much more.
When you download Holly's file, be sure to run the slideshow and click the various links on that first slide! We hope you'll be able to harness Holly's dedication and creativity for your own students.
