PowerPoint Download and SMART Board!

Here is an "Animal Fun" PowerPoint I made for teaching inflections -er and -est!  Just thought I'd share with my teacher friends out there!  {I wish I could figure out how to attach a picture of the first slide...anyone know how to do this?}  Anyway, I hope you will enjoy it!


In other news...my class is getting a SMART BOARD Hooray, hooray!  I am BEYOND excited!  When we found out, the whole class did a WOW cheer, a sprinkler dance, and jumped for joy!  I can't wait to use this incredible resource, and see all the wonderful learning that will take place!!!

Sara - just take a screen shot of your first slide, and then crop it in whatever photo editing software you use!

Rachelle--the school was able to purchase 4 from fundraising, and the teachers wrote essays to get them! I've heard there are so many grants out there for Smart Boards--you should try it!!!

A bunch of us wrote grants at our school and then our principal bought the rest...we are so lucky to have one in every classroom in our school!! I LOVE mine!

I love my SMARTBoard, too. I wrote a grant for it, too. I have a bunch of files for SB. I love my calendar, EDM and working on words with Smartboard. A few are on sale at TPT.
Congrats!

Our whole school got them this year. I am obsessed! I use it ALL the time. And when it doesn't work, I wonder how I ever got by without it. :) Be sure to go to the smart exchange website. They have tons of premade smart board activities. It's awesome! Enjoy! :)

Open Picasa. Then open your powerpoint and take a screen shot ( press fn and prt sc buttons at the same time). You can then crop it in Picasa. Save this cropped image and you should be able to import it into your website as an image. Then add a link to the image so when people click on it the powerpoint will open. I hope this helps.
Thanks for sharing.

I feel silly that I've heard of Smart Boards but no NOTHING about them! Enlighten me? I love your -er and -est slides, they'll go perfect with my "Pig, Pigger, Piggest" lesson!
