Over the years, I’ve put together several early learning presentations. I’d play them on our old computer or connect a cable to the television to view on a larger screen. Nowadays you don’t need a wire and with Screen Mirroring, all you need is Internet access and your smart phone will do.
Here’s just another set of ABC flash card slides thanks to MS PowerPoint (which you can then import into Google Slides for sharing as I have done.)
These slides are supposed to be a focus on our favorite things but with preschoolers, it’s more like the first things that came to mind. Then there was an issue with K. For no apparent reason, my suggestions for Kiss, Karate, Kite, Kangaroo or Knight were a fail while Ketchup was unanimous. Then there’s the case of the bitter X. Not many new or easy choices for this letter with little ones, am I right? But hey, we do enjoy our Xylophone and X-Rays always remind us of Dem Bones. And, no need to wait for Halloween to begin doing The Skeleton Dance!
Play around with the software if you’re interested and come up with your own flash card favorites. Our next project is photos of actual family members (Aunt, Brother, Cousin, Dad, Grandma, Dad, etc.) and if you have any pets, you should include them too!
Hope you enjoy our ABC Favorite Things Slide Show you can view here!
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that yes, the very mention of My Favorite Things always brings me me back to The Sound of Music.
