Are you looking for activities to use digitally with your students? This distance learning PLANT UNIT was created for an entire week of reading comprehension activities, all done throughout Google Slides. There are suggestions, tips and all the resources you would need to spend a week having your students learn about plants at home. I have included 3 DIGITAL READERS. Students can listen to them, read them independently or with a parent helper. There are reading comprehension strategies, writing activities, word work activities, a bean experiment and a comparing plants activity. I plan to use this for 1 week of instruction with my first graders. I will be sending them the activities through Google Classroom daily. I hope this resource is just what you are looking for to ease the stress of digital learning instruction.
I HAVE ADDED AUDIO YOUTUBE LINKS TO ALL 3 READERS TO SUPPORT THE LIMITS THAT GOOGLE PROVIDES ON AUDIO.
