Practice the Alphabet with different Pokemon
Ask the students what the first letter in the Alphabet is and when they answer, show the first pokemon's name. The Pokemon all have their Japanese name so the students are more familiar with them. A few letters don't exist in the standard Japanese alphabet, so those ones will have the American Flag on them to represent that they are the English names
The end has a "Who's that Pokemon?" game where they guess each pokemon by its shadow and you can ask what letter its name starts with
With 3rd grade I just have them say the first letter in the name and with 4th grade I have them spell out the whole name.
For the "M" slide, I have a mew turning into a Ditto (metamon) in part because its is good practice and also because if I could not get a mew as a child, than neither will they haha.
