Digital Reading Response Journal: This digital reading response journal in Google Slides™ is a great way for students to track their reading while working on writing.

The main slide is entitled Genres of Books Read and contains a book bank of 30 books. When a book is read from start to finish, students drag and drop a book from the book bank onto the genre column that represents that book. Books are hyperlinked to take students to a description slide template in which they type in the book title, genre and a description of the book. Each description slide contains a home icon that will take students back to the main graphing slide. Having students type a description of a book is a great way to check to see if they actually read the book .

Context Clues Digital Activity: Context Clues Digital Activity for Google Drive™ is one of my favorite reading activities to teach students the importance of context clues. The beginning of the presentation explains what context clues are and why they are important. The lesson wraps up by having students guess what some nonsense words mean as context clues are added to sentences. Students really get into this and it also shows them how adding details to their writing makes it easier to understand! Mid-way through the presentation there is a link to SafeShare video that will take you to an audio file for a Context Clues song. The Guessing Game (4 Rounds): Students can guess the meaning of the context clues in a variety of ways:
★ Use a backchannel to submit guesses
★ Type guesses in a Google Doc™ or Google Sheet™
★ Write guesses on an individual white board
★ Write guesses in a journal
★ Think, Pair, Share (each round students could partner up with someone different)
Great for distance learning!
