Nouns and Verbs Review PowerPoint

Rating: 4 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Marni Freedman (Teacher (K-12)), Mar 06, 2012

thought your StAIR was perfect for first graders! I absolutely loved the sound effects that were added to the quiz questions. Each one was different, so it was exciting to not only get the correct answer, but to hear the fun sound that comes along with it. My favorite sound was of the kids in the classroom making noises with their mouths! I think the students will walk away from your StAIR with a solid understanding of nouns and verbs. The way you had the pictures of the verbs moving will definitely be something that the children will remember and associate with action verbs. The sound effects that you added to the verb pictures were adorable! Definitely a strength, as it will accomodate different styles of learning. With the model of your StAIR the students are learning through inductive teaching, where they are shown information and then tested on what they learned. When you covered the topics of nouns, I noticed that you highlighted the word “noun” and the corresponding person, place or thing. Using this visual clue will help students to make the connection between these words. Great idea for those visual learners! The length of StAIR was appropriate for the student’s age group. I think that the fist bump slide was funny and a great way to connect with the students (appropriate for their generation). You truly were thinking about the age of your audience with the last slide. What a creative idea to use “That’s All Folks!” Amazing job…can’t wait to use it in my classroom! I know my students will love it.

Technical Remarks:

I think this activity is very complete!  Each page was linked properly to each other...easy to follow and use!
