When producing slides for a presentation, I will usually shoot prints first. This gives me the opportunity to view the shots before the more expensive slide film is used. Once I select the prints I want, I will then take shots of the prints with slide film using the macro lens. I can also add type and indicating arrows to the actual print, so the type or arrows will show up on the slide when presented.

Additionally, by making slides in this way, I can keep a set of prints on files, and I can always make another set of prints or slides on the subject. It's really easy.
