Digital Updates and Additions:

This resource now includes 11 digital activities. I’ve included options for individual and collaborative work and fun ideas for Zoom meetings.

Each digital activity includes an individual and a collaborative option. With the collaborative option, your whole class or small groups of students can work together on the same digital assignment. In addition, I provide you with step-by-step directions on how to complete the activity with a Zoom meeting.

Digital All About Me Monster: Students will practice manipulating items and working in Google Classroom while also sharing things about themselves.

Digital Ad-lib Newsletter: Students will complete a back-to-school newsletter that's missing some words. Options for both individual and collaborative assignments.

Digital Motivational Messages: Students will have the option to work independently or collaboratively in Google Classroom to decode some motivational messages and write about what they mean to them. Options for both individual and collaborative assignments.

Digital Teamwork Tales: Students will work together or independently to build a story. 15 engaging story starters are included. Options for both individual and collaborative assignments.

Digital Hot Seat: Students will answer questions about themselves on a digital assignment. Options for both individual and collaborative assignments.

Digital Would You Rather: Students will answer would you rather questions. Options for both individual and collaborative assignments.

Digital Do You Know Me?: Students will provide three facts about themselves with one being untrue. In addition, I've provided "True" and "Not True" signs for students to hold up in front of their screens in a Zoom meeting. Options for both individual and collaborative assignments.

Digital Jumbled Words: Students will work in a Google Classroom assignment to create words using the connected letters in a grid. Options for both individual and collaborative assignments.

Zoom Meeting Ideas: Looking for creative ideas for making meetings with your students on video chatting platforms fun and engaging? I’ve included ideas on how to easily incorporate get-to-know-you and team building ideas into your video chats.


Each activity in this resource has step-by-step directions, a list of any necessary materials, and a list of any technology required.

I have added a black and white version for easier printing.

As always, please ask ANY and ALL questions before purchasing. Thank you so much!
