I created this video using PowerPoint and then saved it as a WMV file so that it plays like a DVD instead of a PowerPoint presentation. I burned this file (and others) onto a DVD for each Kindergarten student so that they could play it at home and continue learning outside of the classroom. I had hoped that this format would enliven the task of learning to recognize the vowel sounds. I was inspired by how quickly children seem to absorb things that they view on T.V. and wondered whether I might try to accelerate their learning by using a medium similar to T.V.
