Timely Tech is designed to help your students build tech skills while incorporating monthly themed digital activities.
When I teach my students with monthly themed activities that bring in the other subject areas, I find that they are more engaged and empowered to learn.

5 ISTE Standards Addressed
6-11 Links to the digital file in Google Slides and how to use it.
How to Use:
In the Google Slides file you will find activities for every grade level K-5. I didn’t split them up because I want to leave that decision up to you based on your student needs.
Here is an idea of how you might separate these activities by grade levels:
K/1: Build CVC words, adding and number sentences, base 10, hundreds chart puzzles, short and long vowel sounds
2/3: Decorate a clover, Make new words, ABC order, Pixel Art, March prompts, Shapes Kite, Decoding Puzzlers
4/5: Decoding, Make a bulleted list, Search, Keywords, Crossword puzzle typing, IF/THEN/ELSE, Coding, Code a GIF, Animate a GIF
What I recommend:
-Make a copy of the original file for each grade level
-Take out the slides you don’t need
-Rename each file for the grade level you’ll use it with
-Send through Google Classroom or download and use as a PowerPoint file
