Using Digital Grade-Level Activities in the Special Ed Classroom

Saving time planning and teaching is easy when you use digital activities that keep your special ed students engaged.

Grade level digital activities

Not all digital activities are created equal and that means you need to know what to look for when selecting ones to use with your students.

Two of the most important criteria to look for? They should be grade-level appropriate and they should be engaging.

When I found that finding resources that covered both criteria was difficult, I decided to create grade-level bundles that my students would love, and that would make my planning time a lot easier.

Grade-Level Digital Activities for the Win

There are plenty of digital activities out there, but not all of them are standards-aligned. The grade-level digital activities that I created are aligned to the Common Core Standards and can be used on any device that has access to Google Slides.

That means your students can practice the skills they need to learn at home or at school.

There are four standards-aligned bundles to choose from: Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, First Grade, and Second Grade.

All of the bundles include:

  • grade-level activities
  • over 120 digital activities
  • ELA activities
  • math activities

Examples of the Digital Activities

The digital activities include everything from language arts to math to provide a comprehensive set of activities that are common core aligned. That means it’s easy to assign them to students and plan your lessons.

But what do the digital activities consist of? Let’s take a look!

What Others Are Saying About the Grade-Level Digital Bundles

We think it’s always a good idea to see how others are using activities in the classroom or at home. Here are some of the things that other teachers are saying about the Standards-Aligned Digital Activity Bundles.

“Extremely satisfied. This was used primarily for students with learning difficulties, on the autism spectrum, with mild to severe disabilities, and that are emerging bilinguals/ ELs/ ESOLs/ ENLs.”

“I like how big these power points are. I was able to break them up and use them for several days with my students. Breaking the helped them not to become overwhelmed and made it easy for me to assign different slides several days in a row.”

“My students loved using this resource! It is great independence practice for our center rotations. The students have gained confidence while using this! Thank you!”

Finding the right digital activities for your grade level can be challenging, but these standards-aligned Google Slides activities make that easier. Keep your students engaged and your lesson planning easy by trying one of the bundles above this school year!
