What I think you might want to know?• Who is Cathie Matthews, why is she presenting?• Why would I use powerpoints with Kindergarten?• What do my power points look like?• How do I create them?• How are they used? My Questions• Who are they for? Who knows about “Visible Thinking routines”• What else ? Who has heard of March Church ? Who uses • Powerpoint ? • Picassa ? • Animoto ? • Slideshare ? • The Snipping tool ? • How have you used these ?
I find my powerpoints useful for many reasons:• They are like an ongoing class scrapbook.• They help me to really listen• They document the learning. record children’s thinking, wonderings and growing understanding.• A great tool for reflecting
I recommend creating Powerpoints with the children
Powerpoint help me to really listen, show I am interested and document thelearning.
An interview My mum and Dad and my brothers Toby and Sam are important because they care for me, they are really nice and they share. I love little pet shop toys. They are really small. They are important and special to me. I am interested in making craft with beads, because it is really fun when you get to iron them. Harriet

It can be a boy or a girl. Ihave seen scientists do experiments about fossils.A scientist is a person who thinks a lot, reads a lot of science books, think before doing experiments. I was agood scientist. I tried experiments on the lab to find out about pushes and pulls. I learned that if you push or pullhard something will go very fast but if you pull and push slow it goes slow.Victor: I don’t know. Caring?Scientists can make blow rocket, balloon, blow painting with straws, We are learning about science and makingthings move. I was a good scientist. When you blow through the straw , it makes the straw fly very fast. I likedoing experiments to find out about lots of things.Seung Joon: Um, no I don’t know.Scientists are observing. Observe means looking. They look what they are doing. They are thinking. I was a goodscientist, I did lots of experiments with push and pull and water and swing. I know you need to push the swing tomake it move.Itsuki: Scientists make books, write lots of things, like information like animal and insects. He has a brown hat.Scientists do experiments to know about pushes and pulls and make forces. I was a scientist.
