This interactive slide show was designed for young, deaf/hard-of-hearing students as an introduction to Maryann Hoberman's book, A House Is a House. I use it to teach vocabulary words to my youngest and most inexperienced language users, as well as to teach comprehension of the WH question form where to older students.

  • Aha moment: no need to make adjustments to the slideshow once downloaded. Links and formatting are preserved on download. Didn't realize this earlier!

  • Comment on the above comment referred to slide number 23, not the first slide.

    Also, when setting up the slide show as an interactive activity, you will need to make an adjustment in PowerPoint to turn off the automatic slide advance feature. In Office 2007, go to the 'animation' tab on the ribbon and uncheck 'Advance Slide on Mouse Click.' Also check 'Apply to all' - located to the left of the Advance slide check box.

  • Slideshare did not convert this screen as I formatted it. To correct, use the transparency tool on the picture toolbar in PowerPoint and make the white background for the rug photo transparent.

  • This interactive slide show was designed for young, deaf/hard-of-hearing students as an introduction to the book, A House Is a House . I use it to teach vocabulary words to my youngest and most inexperienced language users, as well as to teach comprehension of the WH question form where to older students. My students enjoyed my pairing of Fred Penner’s song by the same name with the PowerPoint (available from iTunes). I have included notes on each slide to describe navigational structure and links, which should make it easy for you to use the video as an interactive tool with your students. Slides do not advance by simple mouse click. Instead, click on navigational icons to advance through the activity. Most graphics are Microsoft PowerPoint clip art. I have provided links to the ten Creative Commons-licensed photos that I obtained from Flickr. Ant icon links to next slide.
