Website Wednesday

Happy Wednesday! I am linking up with Jivey for Website Wednesday :)

I am sure many of your districts have started to implement Google Drive. One of my favorite features of Google Drive is Google Drawing. Simply set up an interactive worksheet for your students to collaborate on. Here is an example:

3rd graders were brainstorming different examples of Characterization. I created a colorful web template and dropped the Google drawing link into student folders for them to pull up. Each student was assigned a colored box to type their ideas in. They love watching the "real time" work of their peers. When they each finish their assigned section, they have one big web to refer to! You can really tell who needs to work on their mechanics and spelling :)

Another way I have incorporated Google Drawing into reading instruction is having students in small groups work together to create a KWL chart about a topic they research. Here is one on water pollution:

Google Drawing can be used across any content area in a variety of creative ways! Have any of you tried this with your students?
