Smile Slideshow


Colgate has just begun offering the opportunity to create a Smile Slideshow that is a great activity for Beginning English Language Learners.

In it, users easily choose a variety of photographs.  Then, you drag-and-drop words to make a sentence or to describe the photos.   Next, you pick a word to describe the “mood” of the show, followed by choosing musical accompaniment.  Finally, you can email the link to the show for posting to an online journal or blog.

It’s a neat way to build some vocabulary.

I’ve placed the link on my Examples of Student Work page under Student Slideshows.
