Let’s jump right into the resource highlight of the day… digital resources! Obviously 2020 caused digital resource use and creation to surge. Many of you had been strictly paper/pencil and were quickly forced into uncharted territory. Those of us who create educational resources had to do a quick pivot as well to help you continue instruction with little stress. You always have the option to upload your PDFs to drive and insert text boxes, but there are so many engaging options!
Of course, there are many benefits to digital learning, most specifically interactivity and saving on paper and printing resources, but I’m still a firm believer in traditional, paper and pencil learning. Because of this, I wanted to make sure my digital resources still “felt” like the printable ones in both design and style.
Printable coloring pages were converted to digital drag and drops, curriculum notes were converted to digital interactive notebooks and assessments kept the same graphics as they were converted to self-grading forms. Warm ups and exit tickets took on a new form with Beginnings and Beyond – self checking google forms activities.
When possible, I added digital components to print resources (like math stations), but often had to make them completely separate resources due to bundle sizes and pricing and the amount of time it was taking for conversions.
To make grabbing all your grade level digital options easier, I created digital bundles for grades 5, 6, 7, and 8th/Algebra 1.
