How to use Digital ELA Centers
So in the pictures here, I opened each activity in the Slides app on my iPad and used my fingers to click and drag and type. These activities also work perfectly on Chromebooks or in PowerPoint on any PC.
The Google Slides™ files are provided as full sets. I highly recommend making multiple sets broken up into smaller pieces.
For example: If you know you can get through 4 letters in one week, make a copy of the Alphabet set that has all but 4 slides deleted to share with your students.
In the matching and rhyming set, there is a slide at the end with all of the uppercase and lowercase letters so that you can make your own slides. There is a blank slide for each style for this purpose. Just copy and paste the letters where you need them.
If you’re using these activities at work stations, I recommend teaching students to “put back” when they are finished. They will get really good at it after practicing 2-3 times.
