The digital part of this resource includes 14 slides which can be used interactively using Google Slides on a computer (this does not work as well on a laptop because of the drag and drop nature of the shapes). There is a link in the second page of this PDf which will prompt you to make a copy to save to your drive. You can then assign or send additional copies you make to individual students. Directions and movable pieces are off to the side of the "page" on the slide so your students have a workspace.

The slides contain :

*Chant posters (1 for au and 1 for aw)- This is the same as the print packet

*Outline the chunk and read the word (comparable to print vocab cards)

*Sort the pictures and words into au or aw (comparable to word sort)

*Drag and drop the word to match the picture (similar to a suggested use of vocab cards)

*Type the aw or au chunk in the blank. Then drag the line to match the picture.

*Type the word next to the picture using the word bank.

*Make a silly sentence (with picture vocab cards and work space)

*3 in a row game to print or use digitally with a shared computer/ mouse.
