An introduction to Nearpod...

Have you ever used Nearpod to help support your literacy instruction? I HIGHLY recommend it!!! This is a great way for students to practice their phonics skills. Nearpod is an engaging and interactive way to deliver instruction through distance learning and/or support your math centers. You can create a free Nearpod account, and the instructions for doing so are included in this bundle. It only takes 2 minutes to sign up.

Students can either join the lesson by using a desktop/Chromebook and going to the Nearpod website OR students can use the app on a tablet/ipad.

Nearpod can be used in two ways. These lessons can be assigned to your whole class simultaneously, allowing you to control your students' screens even when in a different location. This makes it perfect for distance learning!!! It can also be assigned to individual students to complete at their leisure, again making it ideal for distance learning. I LOVE to assign Nearpod lessons as independent work during centers. It gives students the opportunity to practice when working independently. The best part is that you will have access to reports that show you all of their answers. This makes for very useful data!

About this Product

This product is a PDF file that includes a link to the lesson. Make sure to create a FREE Nearpod account first. Then, click on the link to save the lesson to your Nearpod lesson library. The lesson includes the following:

  • 3 leveled Halloween matching activities
  • 6 leveled slides where students read a sentence and draw a picture to match
  • slides where students spell a word the teacher chooses
  • 4 slides where students draw a face on a Jack-o-Lantern
  • 2 leveled Time to Climb games
  • 3 Halloween passages each with a self-correcting comprehension question (NOTE: These passages are sample passages from my October reading passages product. Click here to view the product.)

How To Use this Product:

This product is meant to be used during live virtual meetings (Zoom, Google Meet, etc.). Once in the virtual meeting, instruct your students to open the link to the Nearpod lesson. Use a digital spinner (Learning N Progress spinners linked here) to select which game your class will play. Then, select one of those activities on your teacher Nearpod. Click share, and your students' screens will automatically be moved to that activity.

You can also send this resource as a student-paced lesson, but I recommend changing the order of the slides and/or deleting the slides that require a live lesson (i.e. spelling bee). You can also record your voice on the Spelling Bee slides if you wish to keep them. This way, students can play a variety of activities independently.
