KCA’s powerpoints
What do our ‘Powerpoints’ look like?
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 the
learning.
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

Making Thinking Visible
What are my powerpoints useful for?

Making Young children’s thinking visible
Visible Thinking routines ( Mark Church) Harvard Project zero

                   See - Think – Wonder

                 What makes you say that?

                      Think Pair Share

               I used to think…..,now I think
Visible Thinking routines
Visible Thinking routine:
Visible thinking routines..

                I used to think,

   What do you
see, think wonder?




               and now I think
I used to think and now I think..
                   Compare our thinking from beginning to end of unit.
                                                   What is a scientist?
Finn: They do experiments to find out stuff. A scientist is a person with a white apron. It can be a boy or a girl. I
have 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 a
good scientist. I tried experiments on the lab to find out about pushes and pulls. I learned that if you push or pull
hard 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 making
things move. I was a good scientist. When you blow through the straw , it makes the straw fly very fast. I like
doing 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 good
scientist, I did lots of experiments with push and pull and water and swing. I know you need to push the swing to
make 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. I did lots of
experiments like blow the ball to make it go far.
Raya: Finds out load s of things and sometimes they like to make stuff to find out stuff.
A scientist is a person that invented pushes and pulls. I was a scientist. I pushed and pulled things. I found out
how to make a blow rocket, if you blow out the rocket goes on an pointed angle.
How do I create   them?
How do I create them?
Other ways I use power points
• Independent activities   • Making class books




                           • Pages for portfolio
