One iPad + Google Presentations + Sight Words = SUCCESS

I have been working with some elementary teachers on Google Presentations through Techie Tuesday. They came up with the idea to use a Google Presentation to put their sight words on. They have about 44 slides within their presentation with about 5-6 words on each. Now with the iPad this becomes a learning tool for their students to practice their sight words. The teachers downloaded the Google Drive app for their iPads and signed in with their accounts. This allowed access to the presentation. Now the student can practice the sight words using the iPad. Another way besides using flashcards, etc.

I have another group of elementary teachers that have created an ABC presentation in which their kindergarten students can practice the ABC's via a teacher created presentation! AWESOME!

They can take this one step further by emailing a link to their presentation to families of the students. The students can then practice these skills at home or anywhere in the world using their devices as long as they are connected to the Internet.

So excited for what Google can do for our teaching and learning!
