What a Wonderful World Music Book (ppt) is an example of what we call a "Music Book"... Take a favorite song, and give each child a line of the lyrics to illustrate. Students then scan their drawings and import into a PowerPoint presentation and set to music. The slides of artwork "flip" as the song plays and the students sing.
Petit Rouge Riding Hood by Mike Artell is one of my favorite Louisiana stories. Use PowerPoint to "read the book" to the class.
It's About Time - move the hands on the PowerPoint slide to demonstrate telling time.
