These are great! I use this stuff at the beginning of my classes to get my students focused. I was making some similar ppts, actually, but I like yours better!

I love these types of activities. The kids seem to like brain teasers and puzzles as well. I made a few similar activities over the last year though mine require full sentences which are found in the 6th grade text book. My kids really enjoy them. You'll probably want to replace the second slide on activity 3 with a picture of you and your name on the following slide.

My new weekly warm-up. One a week, gets the kids a bit rowdy but thinking in English. If I move on quickly from the powerpoint, some of them even continue to pay attention. Thanks a lot for posting these up. Simple but very effective - as are all the best materials!

Wonderful, thanks! I've turned this into a game with my morning classes.

Thanks these are great warm ups work so well to set the context and give the students time to process the topic before diving straight in and getting lost. it also really helps to wake them up first thing in the morning. Or just before lunch....or just after lunch....or in the afternoon. any time really!

'Shibal', eh?

He, he. My students got a kick out of that.

I want to find out who you are and give you a hug.
I love these ppts almost as much as my students do.

I've lifted so much off this site, it's time to give something back.

Here's a few of mine, tailored towards the humour/interests of my middle-school boys.

I now use these for a warm-up in class, they don't take long to make and the kids love them.

Also, for those wanting to make their own, here's a website with a list of compound words:
