This is great!  I love how it is so easy to follow!  It has great visuals and I like how you can click ahead so a more advanced student can move on faster if necessary.  It uses scaffolding because it starts off with simple instructions then the student is able to try it on their own. 

If you wanted to add more, you could add directions and websites on how to format it MLA style.  Overall, it is awesome and I think it could be used for other grades than just elementary!

I loved this presentation on how to use Microsoft Word!  Personally, I think it's a great way to teach elementary students the basics to a program they will be using every year from here on out.  It was nice that in the presentation you could stay on a screen for however long you wanted and that you had the option to skip forward to the next slide once you've mastered each step.  Also, the use of color and screen shots was a great idea!  Young kids are generally love things that are visually pleasing so I think the colors will help keep their attention and the screen shots will make it easier for them to see the buttons they are supposed to be using.  Overall I'd say you did a great job creating this presentation, its easy to use, visually pleasing and covers a topic that the students will definitely need in the future!
