Are you ready to have 12 fun days of CVC review with these hands-on, ZERO-prep digital centers? They are perfect for your busy little classroom.
Simply upload the .ppsx files to your Google Drive. Then open the files using Google Slides. You will also want to upload the response sheets and open them using DocHub not Google Docs. Or open them on a computer that has PowerPoint installed. Print the response sheets.
Click the file you want to open and your students are ready to learn! They can advance the slides on their iPad with a swipe of their finger, or using the arrow keys on a standard computer.
Your students will complete each of the 12 DIGITAL DAYS of CVC CHRISTMAS independently. A “self-check” answer key is included at the end of each day's activity. Directions for the 12 activities are included on the cover slide as well as on the recording sheets.
