With many school districts offering online classes, the Coronavirus and flu forcing students to stay home, and homeschool becoming more and more popular, Rockin’ Resources wants to make sure teachers and homeschools can still stick to the standards and have what they need to be successful. This post will show how to support digital learning with quality resources.

How Do You Send Files Electronically?

There are many ways teachers can send files electronically. Depending on the resource, it can be assigned to the student by:

  • Placing the assignment in google drive or dropbox.
  • Emailing the student the assignment with an attachment.
  • Putting the assignment in Google Classroom.

What Resources are Available for Digital Learning?

Below you will find the resources available for Digital Learning. Some links will take you to other blog posts explaining the resources and some links will take you to the resource in our store. I hope you find something useful!

Rockin’ Resources is happy to provide an ALBUM OF FREE RESOURCES to you!

 

Step-By-Step Reading Skills

point of view

We have several Step-by-Step Reading Skills that are standard-based for Grades 4-5. Each of our reading skill units come with three “Student Versions” in the form of PDFs to easily be sent to students. The three versions are differentiated according to different reading levels. Each student version is basically the teacher version minus the lesson plans, printable interactive notebook pages, answer keys, and tests.

What if I want to send students just a couple of pages at a time?

No problem! The PDFs are specifically set up so teachers can easily extract individual pages from the PDFs if they only want students to see or work on specific pages.

You can read more about these reading units HERE.

You can purchase these reading units HERE. I offer some free reading resources in my Album of Free Resources.

What is the best news ever? They are standard-based and ALL reading standards are covered! Each of our reading comprehension passages come with three “Student Versions” in the form of PDFs to easily be sent to students. The three versions are differentiated according to their reading level. Each student version is basically the teacher version minus the answer keys.

Writing Mini-Lesson Videos

We have a series of educational videos for writing in Grades 3-5. Each mini-lesson is in the form of MP4. It teaches the lesson, provides examples, gives practice, and asks students to apply their knowledge. The essay writing, it also shows MODELING! They are available for

  • Sentence Structure
  • Paragraph Writing
  • Narrative Writing
  • Opinion Writing
  • Informative Writing

For each type of essay writing, the videos provide the students with a step-by-step approach going through the writing process and building an essay. Let me do the teaching for you!

See an example HERE.

In these uncertain times, I want teachers and homeschool parents to have the tools they need to teach writing remotely. I am giving you access to 80+ educational writing mini-lesson videos for FREE until April 15, 2020. They were created for Grades 3-5 and are in the format of streaming videos.    FREE VIDEO LINK

Since I didn’t know where you were in writing this year, I am giving access to all the mini-lesson videos for sentence structure, paragraph writing, narrative writing, opinion writing, and informative writing. The videos are numbered and organized for scaffolding. They have important teaching points, practice, and examples. The essay writing follows the writing process and provides modeling so your students can SEE how to write an effective essay.

Although these videos were created to go along with our STEP-BY-STEP Writing Program® and ROCKSTAR WRITERS™ Professional Development Course, they can assist you with your writing curriculum as well.  Learn more HERE.

Let me do the teaching for you and we can ROCK YOUR TEACHING together!
