What educators are saying

A great resource to use as an extension of our instruction! Thank you for taking your time to make something so beneficial to independent practice during this crazy time!


Check out the teacher preview video showing you the entire product. You can view that here:

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 moving and recognizing positional words (next to, under, left, above, in, etc). On each slide, there is an audio clip that reads the sentence to the student for those that need help reading. This activity has 20 practice slides. 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 has directional videos before each section for the kids. You can view those here:

**PLEASE NOTE: Some administration settings block sharing files with their student's drives, so the AUDIO CLIPS may not be accessible to some. There's nothing I can do about it, as this is a district issue. I have tried several things to try to work around it, but some districts block it completely.

There is also an answer key for you on the last slide. You can print this out or simply put it on another computer screen next to you as you grade. Just be sure to delete it before assigning this to students!

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!!
