Kindergarten Sight Words

Today in my kindergarten tech class, we practiced spelling sight words and finding letters on the iPad keyboard.  I created a Keynote presentation that showed the class how to open the app (we used Notes) and create a new note.  Then they typed their name and were ready to begin.  Each slide of the Keynote showed a sight word  and instructed them to press return after the word.  I included a different transition between each slide (almost to the point of obnoxiousness), but the kids were excited to see what would happen next!  The kids enjoyed getting to find letters for words they knew well (they couldn’t believe that Ms. H knew all the words they knew from their classroom).  The biggest problems were students getting confused about the letter “I” and mistaking it for a lowercase “L” and students getting impatient and tapping different areas on the screen, which caused their cursor to jump around.
