Do you have an interest in making technology a meaningful part of your classroom instruction?
Do you want to reduce paper use in your classroom too?
Those two questions led me to the two big reasons why I began using Google Slides and Powerpoint Presentations in my classroom. In fact, I found many more benefits after I began integrating technology in more meaningful ways. My students became more engaged, excited, and displayed their learning in new ways. It helped me to support diverse student needs. Using Google Slides and Powerpoint Presentations provided me with a new way to create extensions for my advanced learners and to support and engage my students who need more support. Technology is a vital skill for students to learn in today's world and this is a great way for them to begin navigating technology as an important learning tool.
This resource is meant to be used as a guide during guided reading and reading centers, for students who are able to read the Geronimo Stilton chapter book series. In my classroom, I have a small group of students who fell in love with Geronimo, so they've read 3 chapter books and they use these slides to compare and contrast the books. Then they will present their findings to the class, since it easily displays on the SmartBoard.
After you access the link for Google Slides, you will make a copy, and share with your students. Once you have made a copy for yourself you can move slides around, cut slides out, and add slides in. This resource can be adjusted to fit your teaching needs. Your students can work on a desktop computer, on a laptop, or on an iPad. Since this is a digital file they can access it from anywhere. They can work at school and from home!
