Powerpoint Tutorial For Digital Anchor Charts

powerpoint tutorial

By now, teachers everywhere are growing more accustomed to making videos for their students. By now, you’re all doing some kind of hybrid-virtual voodoo teaching, and even though it seemed uncomfortable at first, and you’ve never known that you can be this tired, you’re making it work! In this article, I’m going to show you how to make digital anchor charts with a powerpoint tutorial. This is going to be a game-changer for you. You’ll be able to use these anchor charts with your students either in the classroom, or while virtual teaching.

Why Digital Anchor Charts?

We have modified our instruction to reach our students virtually or at a distance. And we need to vary our routine of introducing a reading skill with a mini-lesson and an anchor chart. Instead, we deliver our lessons digitally. On the Google Slides app, you can make an anchor chart to show during your Zoom calls. In the Seesaw app, you can add a video mini-lesson right to your anchor chart!

The best part is that when you make your anchor charts, you’ll have them always! Use them again for review later in the year, put them in a literacy station for your students to practice, or use them in years to come! I’m pretty aware of how much time it takes to make new digital products for your classroom, so as long as you’re able to reuse them again and again, it’ll be worth the effort. However, if you’re not interested in making any of these at all, you can check out the digital anchor charts that I have available on literacystations.com. Each anchor chart is loaded onto Google or Seesaw. All you need to do is add your own content and push it out to your kiddos!

Powerpoint Tutorial

There are a lot of basic Powerpoint tutorials out there that can teach you how to use this program. If you need a really good powerpoint tutorial to get you started, I’d watch this one first. What I’m going to show you in this video is how to give your slides some professional design and turn it into a movie for your students. 

Guess what else you can add! Video! This powerpoint tutorial will also show you how you could add a video INTO your video! Whaaaat!? Imagine a read aloud you’d like to add. Or maybe, you’ll take a mini lesson on a reading skill. The video will automatically play with the slides you make!

Now, you can add your video to your Google classroom, or straight into your Seesaw activities! 

Now You Try!
