Using Google Slides for Learning

Using Google Slides for education is super easy. Seriously, I learned how in a matter of minutes.

So, even if you’ve never used Google Slides before, you can start using them with your kids today.

The first step is to sign into your Google Drive or Google Classroom.

Then, download the resource at the end of this post. The file delivered to your e-mail contains the link for the Google Slides file. When you click on the link, it will ask you to “Make a Copy” before using the activity.

PLEASE NOTE: You must make a copy, otherwise you will be changing the master file for everyone.

Once, you make a copy, you will also want to make a copy for each of your students. Save one master copy for yourself in a safe folder on Google Drive.

Then, you can send the files to your students!

The kids can open the file and start using the activity right away. It will open in ‘edit’ format and should stay that way. If the ‘present’ button is accidentally clicked, the file will not be interactive and must be switched back to ‘edit’ mode.

To use the CVC Word Building activity, the kids will choose the correct letters for each word, tap and drag the letters to the word box to build the word.

Super simple and perfect for little learners who are learning to navigate both reading and technology!

And perfect for teachers who have found themselves in need of activities that don’t require printing.

CVC Word Family Activity for Kindergarten

After kindergarteners learn the alphabet, CVC words are their next step! I think it is so fun introducing CVC Word Families to kindergarteners because they are part of the essential foundation of learning to read.

Watching kids read a real word for the first time is simply magical!

CVC words give a good chance to review letter sounds while still making kids feel successful by building short vowel words.

This CVC Word Building Google Slides activity for the “a” word families is a great place to start. I bet they’ll ask to do it more than once! You can provide a fresh unused copy of the file and the kids can practice over and over.

      1. It would have to be in present mode to be put into Google Sites and that would be it would not be interactive for your students. In order to be in “edit” mode and interactive it needs to to be shared through Google Classroom or through the “Share” feature on Google Slides.

        For some visuals and more detailed instructions on how to share through Google Classroom or Google Slides check out our Google Slides Tutorials found on our Digital Resources page!

  1. Hi, Do these slides work on canvas? My school system has everyone set up on canvas. I know the teacher I work with would love to use them for her K’s.
    Thank you

    1. I’m not familiar with that platform, so I don’t know if it would work. You can try it and let us know!

  2. Thank you Kim for all these resources. They are of gr8 help. I wanted some more help from you. I have a student of determination with me this year with Autistic Syndrome. I am confused as in how to go about with her specially when we are in this phase of Remote Learning.
    Looking forward for some help and advice from you
    Thank you

  3. Thank you for sharing! I’m not sure if you realize, but you can set google slides to default and prompt people to make a copy before allowing access. Thought I’d share😊

  4. When the activity is opened in the web browser it is showing you a preview of the activity and you will not be able to interact with it yet. If you close out your web browser and go to the Google Slides website, or open the Google Slides app on your iPad you will be able to access the activity that way and it will open in “edit” mode.

  5. I checked on this and the word and image are correct “dab”, but the word list at the end of the file had an issue. Please note that the words are listed in order in columns, not across the rows.

  6. I am absolutely loving your freebies, especially the new digital ones. I have shared your site with my Tk and Kinder friends, and will share with my parents as well. You seem to share my same philosophy for teaching.

  7. Hi!! I LOVE all of these and want to download them in bulk. Is there a way to download all of them at the same time or do I need to have them sent to my email separately?

  8. These are great! I’m excited to use them. Where did you find the letters for the activities? I’ve been trying to find letters to use in activities, but haven’t found anything.
