Google Docs is basically Word, but online. You can access it anywhere in real time. If you click ADD ONs (on the top near file, format, etc.) you can access pre-built templates for free. (These include rubrics, reports, etc.)
Google Slides is essentially PowerPoint. It saves automatically, though. YAY! There are pre-built themes, that the students can edit quickly. Here are some quick view of 2nd grades' animal reports.
This is an app for Google Chrome. You can create graphic organizers, and other things on this app.
Google Keep, Google Spreads, and Google Drive
