Journeys Digital Literacy Centers

A new school year is here and there are not enough hours in each day to get everything done. More technology is being integrated into classrooms.  We are hearing more research about Blended learning , which mixes  technology and traditional face-to-face instruction in the classroom.  In a typical model, Blended learning combines traditional classroom learning with online learning, in which students can, in part, control the time, pace, and sometimes even place of their learning.As the new Chromebooks, laptops, iPads, and computers are being delivered , there is a great need for ideas on how to use them and integrate this new technology into our Language Arts block using our adopted curriculum. There are so many benefits of using digital resources, but two main reasons are that you don’t need to make copies and student engagement is incredibly high!  This was the inspiration for converting our Journeys story activities and resources into interactive, Google drive based activities to fill this need.When doing Literacy Centers, it makes life so much easier when you have repeatable “centers” that students learn at the beginning of the year so they know what to do each week. We have formatted our resources so students quickly learn how to use the resources and they quickly are able to work independently from the teacher.

Here are the first digital resources for 3rd through 6th grades :

A Fine, Fine School Journeys 3rd Grade Unit 1 Lesson 1 Google Resource

 

 

Because of Winn Dixie Journeys 4th Grade Lesson 1 Google Digital Resource

A Package for Mrs. Jewls Journeys 5th Grade Lesson 1 Google Digital Resource

The School Story Journeys 6th Grade Lesson 1 Google Digital Resource

The directions are simple:

  1. you download the resource
  2. you make a copy
  3. you share it with your students
  4. students have fun while they’re learning!

More detailed instructions are included, and we are an email away for any questions. We will have every story in a digital format for 3rd through 6th grade available. So excited for this new chapter in our digital student learning!
