What educators are saying

LOVED THIS! Great setup! Easy to use! Just pop it in Google Classroom and Go! The how to videos are very helpful for students!

Have your students use Google Classroom independently with this activity on Google Slides! Each slide is "anchored" into place with only possible answers being able to be moved on the slide. You don't have to worry about your students messing up any part of the slide or clicking and changing anything that is part of the question.

For this activity, students practice reading the poem "Bear in There" by Shel Silverstein and then work with various features of the poem in the following slides (rhyming, alliteration, syllables, and comprehension). This activity has 17 practice slides along with a definition slide for each of the features listed above. At the end of the activity, students can then "turn it in" to your Google Classroom for you to check on your own time. This Google Classroom also has a directional video at the beginning for the kids as well as additional direction videos throughout the presentation. You can see those here:

Also included is an answer key for you in the Google Drive folder. You can print this out or simply put it on another computer screen next to you as you grade.

I have also put video support in the Google Drive folder that shows you how to assign this to Google Classroom, how to divide this activity into smaller activities for the students to make multiple assignments, and some tech tips that you'll need to know in order to assist your students in they get stuck.

Additionally I have put a simple copy of the poem in the Google Drive folder for you to print off quickly if needed.

There are so many possibilities for this online resource! Independent practice, partner practice, small group practice, whole group practice, RTI practice...whatever you want to do! If you find that this assignment is too long, make it into a few assignments OR simply shorten it by deleting slides.

This product is great for distance/online learning and is compatible with Google Classroom. I've even had teachers tell me that they use it on their Zoom and Google Meets calls with their students!

Please note that this is a Google App, which means you must allow TPT access to your drive in order to get access to this product. If you DO NOT want TPT to access your drive, just email me at after purchasing and I can share it with you personally so you can make a copy. Also feel free to email me if you have questions or need help!!
