Google Classroom and Exit Ticket

  • This resource is perfect for distance learning and integrates with Google Classroom. Included is a link that with one click, will automatically create a copy of the resources and put them directly into your Google Drive.
  • Purchase --> Open --> Click --> Assign to your students
  • On the last Google Slide of each lesson is a link to a four-question Exit Ticket that you can give as homework or to conclude your lesson in class.
  • This lesson includes both Google and Office versions for ALL resources. The presentation is in Google Slides and PowerPoint while all documents contain Word and Google Doc versions.

Having both options allows you to use either without worrying about formatting issues as all the work has already been done for you. It also allows you, as well as your students, to access everything no matter where you are or what kind of equipment is being used.

**Plus: Included with your purchase is a complimentary bonus activity which will extend your students learning and understanding**

Digital and Distance Learning:

Each lesson is fully digital which makes it perfect for the classroom, distance learning, or as a sub-plan if needed. With a single click, the entire package will be imported into your Google Drive and will be ready to assign to your students or present in class. You can also place a copy of the resources directly into student Google Drive accounts for easy access.

Exit Tickets can be directly accessed from the last Google Slide in each presentation. Additionally, your purchase will create a copy of the Google Form Exit Ticket which you can edit to meet your class needs.

Student Version:

The student version of each lesson contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
