I have spent quite a bit of time this past week pulling together distance learning resources teachers can use with students. Sometimes that took the form of converting resources to use in Google Classroom. The link above for At-Home Learning also gives many resources.
This post outlines resources I currently have available for distance learning or at-home learning. Included are blog posts as well as a cohesive list of resources available for Google Classroom.
Blog Post About Distance Learning
I have been creating a series of blog posts about distance learning and how teachers can work smarter within this crisis. Here is a list of the posts currently available. This list will be updated as new posts become available.
Teacher and Student Resources Available for Google Classroom and Distance Learning from What I Have Learned
Here is a list of resources that I currently have available for use in Google Classroom. The list is organized by subject area. It will continue to change and be updated as I convert more resources.
We have updated our popular blending cards with a Google Slides version. The Google Slides version has directions, the word with blending cues, and a picture that matches the word. The Google Slide has an animated blue slide that covers the picture so students can self-check. Below are inks to the updated sets.
At-Home Reading Log
FREE is a NEW At-Home Reading Log using Google Forms. Students can record their reading using the form and you have a record of it in Google Sheets.
Graphic Organizers for Language Support
The Reading Comprehension Graphic Organizers have been updated to include a Google Slide of each of the full-page graphic organizers.
Open and Closed Syllables
The Open and Closed Syllables for Two-Syllable Regular Words has been updated with a Google Slides version. The link post above has a video preview that shows the the Google Slides.
Addition & Subtraction within 20
This Addition & Subtraction within 20 resource focuses on Making 10, Adding 10, and Using 10 to add and subtract. It includes both a print and a digital version.
Seasonal Word Problems by Problem Type for Addition & Subtraction
The seasonal word problems already came with digital resources. They are editable and include:
- Full-page with space to solve and reflect (EDITABLE & DIGITAL)
- Half-page with space to solve and reflect (EDITABLE & DIGITAL)
- Task Cards with colorful clipart (included recording sheet. NOT EDITABLE)
- Journal Strips (EDITABLE & DIGITAL)
Word Problems by Problem Type
Both the Addition & Subtraction and the Multiplication & Division Word Problems by Problem type come with an editable Powerpoint. The Powerpoint contains all of the word problems so that you can easily place them into your distance learning platform.
Cut & Paste Math Activities
The following Cut & Paste Math Activities include a Google Slides component with moveable pieces and spaces to type in numbers and written responses. You can read more about the second grade and third grade, sets in the linked blog posts.
- Cut & Paste 4th OA
- Cut & Paste 4th NBT
- Cut & Paste 4th MD & G
We have quite a few resources for science that include distance learning components. This blog post outlines them in detail. They are also listed below.
5E Units for Third Grade
The 5E Units for Third Grade come with both a Google Slides and Powerpoint version for teachers AND a Google Slides version of the student sheets and reading passages. See more about the 5E Units for 3rd Grade in this post. Here is a list of our 5E Units:
Science Stations for 2nd, 3rd, 4th & 5th Grades
For 2nd-4th grades, we updated the WATCH a Video, PLAY a Video Game READ, and SORT Science Stations with components that can easily be used in Google Classroom.
- Each of the WATCH and PLAY stations includes a Google Form with a link to the video or game and the differentiated questions.
- The READ station has a Google Form with the reading passage and differentiated questions.
- Each of the SORT stations includes a link to a Google Sheet with the reading passage, color sorting cards, AND a link to a Google Form with differentiated questions.
We are currently creating and publishing the new 5th grade science stations. As we create them, we are adding Google resources to all of them. Of course, we still include hands-on activities. A Google Form™️ with Reading Passage & Differentiated Questions are included for the Watch, Investigate, Diagram, Read, Model, Explore and Sort stations. Google Slides™️ with Activity Directions & Worksheets are included for Investigate, Diagram, Model, Explore, Sort stations.
Updating the science stations is a large task and an ongoing process. Below is a list of the stations that have been updated so far as well as what we plan to update. The linked bullet points have been updated. If it is not a live link, it has not been updated yet.

Fifth Grade Science Stations
We are in the process of creating the fifth grade science stations. The following ones are complete:
Based on teacher responses, we will consider updating additional science stations. Please let me know in the comments if you would use Google Classroom resources for the science stations.
Other Google Classroom Resources
Do you use my resources in your classroom and are in need of digital resources for them? Please leave a comment and let me know which resource your using. I’ll consider creating a digital version of it.
