StAIR Characters

Logo for StAIR Characters
Interactive PowerPoint for grade 1 introducing characters in Realistic Fiction. Students will learn which characters are real and which are make believe. There is a short video to watch and a multiple choice quiz for them to take immediately following. Students have the option to click and listen to the text or read on their own. I apologize as I did not realize that my sound did not transfer with my PowerPoint please be aware of this if you try a stand alone using PowerPoint.

I apologize as I did not realize that my sound did not transfer with my PowerPoint.

I really liked how this StAIR presented the content. I felt it would be good for young readers. I like the idea of the audio and video, however I could not get them to work and in some cases, I could not take the quizes.

I like the overall content. All the pictures are very helpful for the students.

Technical Remarks:

The video wouldn't work for me nor the the little sound icons.  Something you might want to change that could be helpful to the students would be taking off the mouse clicking to advance to the next slide.  That way if a student accidently clicks the mouse to advance instead of an arrow they don't get lost in the powerpoint presentation.
