This set of Google Slides™️ are designed to allow you to create independent work systems digitally for distance learning or in-classroom on a computer or tablet. If you have used independent work systems in the classroom and wondered how to use them in distance learning, this product is what you need. There is also a video included to walk you through how to setup and use the systems.

From these systems, students will know what task to do and in what order; how much work needs to be done; how to know when they are finished; and what to do next.

**When you download this product, you will receive a pdf of links to the Google Slides and the video. You will not receive a printable work system. You and your student will need an internet connection to use this resource.**

⭐️⭐️ If you are a member of the Special Educator Academy, this is included in your membership and you do not need to purchase it. ⭐️⭐️


  • Special education students of any age who can use Google Slides or is learning to do so.
  • Any student who is used to doing independent work systems in the classroom
  • Preschool and elementary students who need structure to work independently


See the preview for pictures of each type of system

  • 3 versions of “basket” independent work systems. Students match the schedules to the matching pieces on the baskets. They click the basket to go to the slide with their task. They click finished to return to the schedule.
  • 4 versions of file folder type activities in different formats. The schedules are setup to move through the system (students don’t match to them), and they click the file folder to go to the task. Then they click the finished icon to go to the next page with the next part of the schedule.
  • A link to the video to walk you through how to use the systems and how to set them up. It’s a detailed tutorial that I highly recommend watching before using the systems.
  • Digital choice boards and visuals for all systems for what they do next


  • A detailed video tutorial walks you through the steps of setting up each type of work system and how students will use it.
  • Each system is labeled with title pages within the Google Slides file as a table of contents with links for easy navigation.
  • The iconic / basket system will be most familiar to students working on basket systems in the classroom. They also provide the most flexibility in terms of the number of tasks to be completed.
