Powerpoint stories

These free powerpoints include colourful images and simplified text. You can use them to tell the stories in a simplified way. They also provide a change of focus from traditional storytelling. In order for kids to acquire language, they need to hear it several times. It is very useful to re-tell stories several times for this reason. BUT…these re-tellings don’t always have to be done in the same way or format. If you are using these in a classroom setting with a projector, you might also enjoy using the slides for other vocabulary and language games.
