    A fun way to use powerpoint is to create alphabet books on a topic. For example, if you are studying egypt you can come up with a different Egyptian word for each letter. The student could create their page with the letter and a description of their word. You can then scan in a picture they drew or even use a digital photo of their picture and put it in their page. These can be printed out and laminated and they make an awesome ABC book of whatever topic you are studying.

    I have also had children do powerpoints on whatever topic they are studying. For example, we just did biographies and I had the kids do a powerpoint on their person. They did these in partners and presented them to the class. For the first time you do powerepoint, I recommend assigning them in partners or groups. After the kids get comfortable using it, they can even use powerpoint to organize their notes.

    Also, if you have access to Inspiration, I recommend you start looking into that. It is an awesome program to integrate with any subject. If you have struggling writers, it is a great brainstorming tool. It is also a unique program to use for a final assessment on a story (rather than a traditional test). They could make a web and outline characters, plot, setting, conflict, and resolution. We did therse and they turned out wonderfully!

    Sorry this was so long....let me know if you have any other questions!
