This power point presentation is one of my
favorite assignments I have been able to do for
any of my classes. It means so much to me
because I did it with my fiancés 8-year-old son
Jackson. Jackson is always asking about my
homework and I am always asking about his. We
have been helping him research Thomas Edison for
his school research project and when he found out
that I was using power point this week he
insisted he do a power point presentation on
Thomas Edison. I am so proud of him. He had a
list of topics that his teacher had given him,
from draw a picture of your person, make a
collage, or do another visual of your choice. At
first, I wasnt sure how well this would go
because he is in second grade and I wondered if
it would be too challenging for him. Much to my
surprise we both had a great time working on this
power point. He is presenting his project this
Tuesday to his class and he has asked that I come
and watch. I know that he is very proud of his
accomplishment, just as I am of both of us.
Although I had to help him quite a bit with the
technical parts of the presentation he caught on
very quickly and by the end of the presentation
he knew how to add slides, bullets, information,
and pictures on his own. This project is geared
towards second graders and I am really excited to
watch Jackson present it to his class this
Tuesday. I feel like Jackson went above what was
expected of him and think that it is great that
we were able to share this assignment.
