Google Slides™ presentations are a great way to get your students engaged in creative writing. The final slideshows can be turned into digital books that you can embed on your class blog/website and/or emailed to parents. The slides are set to print on 8.5x11 paper for you to print and bind together if you would rather have a hard copy.
Each student slide contains directions at the bottom.
How it works:
These products are intended to be collaborative presentations so students will need to access the SAME link and not make a copy. However, if you would rather them work on their own, delete the extra slides and distribute however you wish!
For collaborative books, assign each student a slide. Depending on which seasonal activity you use will depend on what the activity will entail. ALL activities have a writing component that can be adapted to whatever you wish! Get creative
Many of the activities will have your student include a selfie. (Student devices need a webcam in order to take a selfie). Other activities will require students to add an image by inserting ones the teacher provides or using the built in search feature.
Seasonal Digital Books will include 10 activities in all!
• Fall Trees
• Halloween Costumes
• Winter Snowman
• Winter Holiday Traditions (Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, etc)
• New Year's Resolutions
• Valentine's Day #Hashtag Hearts
• St. Patrick's Day
• Spring Time
• Summer Time

Digital writing is wonderful for a variety of reasons
First, teachers don't have to cart a class set of journals back and forth from school to home. Instead, sign into your Google account and read from anywhere, even when you are on the go! Another great reason is that you can comment on students' writing without "marking up" their paper. I like for students to engage in digital writing because they can color code specific words by changing the color of font. Ex. Descriptive words=red, Verbs=green, Vocabulary Words=blue. This is a great visual for the editing process. Students can quickly and easily edit their writing without having to rewrite their entire paper.
This product comes as a link in a PDF file. Click on the link and it will take you to a VIEW ONLY Google Doc. I will gradually be adding the other activities. Make sure you are signed into your Google account. Click on the title of each activity and you will be prompted to "Make a Copy". Rename the file to whatever you would like. It will be sent directly to your drive! Disperse to your students via Google Classroom™, Google Drive™ Shared folder, your Learning Platform, etc..
NO PREP!!! Great way to get your students writing and typing!
