Playback Speed:
Transcript

Learning how to spell words can be challenging -- especially words that are not very familiar to you.

Practicing your spelling words by leaving a trail of clues for yourself or others to follow can make learning more fun and successful.

In this lesson, you will practice spelling words by creating a presentation that has picture and letter clues.

A presentation shows, describes, or explains something.

For your presentation, you will work with a partner or in a small group.

You will each choose a spelling word and add a picture clue to your word in the presentation.

Then, as you begin spelling, the word will be revealed, one letter at a time on each slide in your slideshow.

This way, you and your classmates can practice spelling the word by revealing the hidden letters.

As you create your presentation, you will learn many new digital skills.

Digital skills help you find information, share things with others, or create something entirely new when you are online.

The digital skills you learn in this video will help you: Create a new Google Slides presentation, Choose a theme for your presentation, Add and copy slides, Add an image, Add and format text, And preview your presentation.
