A list for parents of educational activities to keep your child engaged in learning.
Ideas for teachers to easily add to your student's at-home learning curriculum.
RESOURCES FOR PARENTS: I recently gathered up a list of online resources for literacy as well as a few fun ideas for learning at home as a reference for both parents and teachers. This list of at-home learning ideas will be updated as more distance learning tips and tricks come to me
TWO TECH TIPS FOR TEACHERSthat use Google Classroom for virtual lessons. This post shows a couple little tips and tricks I’ve learned in order to keep my virtual lessons as interactive as possible!
These resources mimic the multisensory phonics routines I use as closely as distance learning allows.
For each Blending Sounds set there is:
Practice Video – In this video I basically teach through the Google Slides. As best as I can, I mimic the way I would go through this phonics review with my students and provide modelling for students to practice along with me. Since I obviously can’t monitor this closely, student may very well just listen and watch as I do the entire practice routine myself, but that’s better than nothing in my opinion!
Google Slides – The slides are available without my instruction. They are simple and should be easy for students to understand even without the voice instructions that the practice video provides. In Google Classroom, adding extra directions in the assignment or material description should be enough to get students through.
MY WORK – This slide is for students to use in order to show their own work. Directions for students are on the slide, as well as described and modeled for students in the practice video.
For my students, I am creating an assignment in Google Classroom and attaching the practice video and MY WORK slide. The students are to watch and practice along with the video, then complete the MY WORK slide.
Blending Sounds Set 2 – March 30: This set includes everything from the March 16 blending board, but also includes some open syllables, vowel teams, and an ending -zy.
I created a Morphology Boggle game that teachers could add to their Google Classrooms as a virtual learning center that allows students to interact with and think about morphology in a game-like way. Each Morphology Boggle board is a separate slide. Use them as you wish! I’ll be adding more as I have time, so check back later if you’re in need of more boggle boards.
This resource is available in my TPT store for FREE. All I ask is that you go back and rate/review the product in return for it being free. Thank you!
