Today I will be talking my love of all things slides and drawings at Fusion in Hays. Hands down my go-to creation tools when I want students to express their collaborative or independent learning with a dash of creativity and communication when they are ready! Check out the slide deck below, happy creating!
december bitmoji rooms and sweater fun
I have to admit that I enjoy making winter bitmoji rooms the MOST. I mean, I actually looked forward to editing my bitmoji’s outfit for winter weather. I really need a vacation in real winter weather! Click on the image to get a copy of the google slide that you can use to make your own copy and edit. Add these to Schoology, share for extension time…whatever works for you! I also have a google drawing file you can pair with the Sweater Slide to have students practice using the shape tool to create a sweater design. Each room has links to read alouds, themed poems, drawing activities and more!
google drawings and building a snowflake
Every January I embark upon a celebration of snowflakes that boggles the minds of most teachers. I LOVE snowflakes, and they have so many interesting science and mathematical connections to make with students of every age! This year I added a google drawing component to my lessons, asking students to learn shortcuts in gsuite as they demonstrated understanding of the structure of a snowflake (hexagonal). Students drew and labeled their flakes- they can be categorized in several ways- and used their newfound techie shortcuts to make fabulous flakes. I shared a google drawing example to start them off, but their creations quickly became all their own. Below are two of my faves that students shared with me via google- another plus is that these could have been collaboratively made in gsuite.
