Making Alphabet Books



Foundation students combined their Alphabet knowledge with their PowerPoint skills to create some amazing online Alphabet Books to read.

The children thought of something that started with each letter of the alphabet and searched for a clip art picture to represent it. They then had to save the picture and resize and reposition the picture on their slide, as well as typing the letter and the word to card

When the children completed their work, Mrs N uploaded them to Snacktools. The URL for each slideshow was then converted to a QR code and sent home in Christmas cards the children made for parents to scan and read online.


Here is an example from each Foundation class.

Year 2 Animators

Pivot Animator is a great tool to try if you are learning to animate. Year 2 students really enjoyed learning animation skills and soon were adding backgrounds and converting their animations into short movies using Movie Maker.

This was the first time Grade 2 students had used both Pivot Animator and Movie Maker and I think they did a great job, don’t you?

Here are several examples:

‘Men Part 1 and Part 2’ – Produced by Nick and Will (Grade 2)

 ‘Dance Studio’ – Produced by Ava (Grade 2)

‘The Week on the Dance Floor’ – Produced by Mackenzie (Grade 2)


‘ICE’ – Produced by Matthew (Grade 2)
