Martin Luther King, Jr. Digital Resources

Digital MLK, Jr. Day Unit

Hey, y'all. Are your students loving digital readers on Google Classroom™ as much as mine are? Sometimes it is so hard to fit in all the social studies, but these digital readers are an easy way to get it all in and allow students to work at their own pace.

With this MLK Day unit, students read a short passage and answer a writing prompt on each slide. They learn all about who Dr. King was, what the civil rights movement was and his part in it, and explore how they can continue to support his legacy. 

It's a short little unit just right for early finishers, reading stations, distance learning, or if you have a substitute. My kids love these digital readers and I know yours will, too. You can find out more about this unit and more in my TPT store here.  

I am always adding new resources so check back often for more new teaching tools. I hope you have a wonderful week and I'll talk to you soon.

Digital February Math Centers for Primary Grades

Digital Math Centers for Kindergarten, 1st Grade, and 2nd Grade

Hey, y'all! We're heading into the home stretch here soon, but before that, we get to have a little Valentine fun! 

This year, we're utilizing a ton of technology in the classroom in order to differentiate more easily with our students. That's one of the beauties of digital technology: students can be working on different levels of difficulty in each subject, but none of the other students know that they're all working on different things! Boom cards and Google Classroom have become the Holy Grail for differentiation!

Kindergarten students have fun comparing numbers, adding, counting, and finding the missing number. Each of these units is available for Boom Learning and Google Classroom.

First graders practice finding the missing subtrahend, adding 10 to a number, skip counting, and determine if a number is even or odd. With options available for Boom and for Google Classroom, your kids will have exactly what they need for math this month.

My second graders work on expanded form during this point of the school year, so there's plenty of practice in these units. They also work on skip counting, finding the missing subtrahend, and adding 2-digit numbers. The beauty of Boom cards are that they are self-checking and offer students immediate feedback. Google Classroom units allow you assign cards in chunks so students can work on all of the cards in one file or in smaller sections.

I am always adding new resources to my TPT store, so stop by often and check them out. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you found some new ideas for your classroom. Have a wonderful week and I'll talk to you soon.

Digital Winter Math and Reading Centers

Digital Winter Math and Reading Centers

Hey, y'all. We're getting ready for the winter months around here and I love sharing the fun of the holiday season with my students!

This year, we're utilizing a ton of technology in the classroom in order to differentiate more easily with our students. That's one of the beauties of digital technology: students can be working on different levels of difficulty in each subject, but none of the other students know that they're all working on different things! Boom cards and Google Classroom have become the Holy Grail for differentiation!

What that looks like in the classroom is that one set of students are working on these Holiday Addition and Subtraction Boom Cards with numbers to 20 and another set of students are working on the same type of Boom Cards with numbers to 100. Each set of kiddos is getting exactly what they need, bu the kids don't have to know that their peers are working on an easier or harder set. They're all just working!

And when it comes to sight word practice, the kids can all work on the same set of sight word Boom cards, or you could assign them the Google Classroom version and pick and choose which words you want different groups of students to practice. If little Jimmy still needs to practice spelling “I,” “and,” and “the,” he can, while little Suzy can work on words like “said,” “what,” and “play.” All you have to do as the teacher is separate the cards out (I usually do 5-10 words at a time so I don’t overwhelm my littles).

How easy is that?! Everyone gets what they need, you don’t have to make a ton of copies, and once you separate the sight word cards the way you want them, you can keep the sets like that assign them to students as they need them. 

 

I have to admit, I was super hesitant to go fully digital with my kiddos. I just wasn’t used to teaching things that way. (And I still think the kids need plenty of non-techy things to do!) But having digital options makes it SO EASY to plan and prepare for each of my groups of kiddos. What do you think? Are you loving this “digital revolution” we’re in right now or no? Let me know in the comments!

 

Have a wonderful week and stay tuned for more great resources coming soon!
