Teacher Spotlight

Kathy Scavone - Coyote Valley

My 4th grade class at Coyote Valley Elementary School had the pleasure of having Jenna Rodgers teach us how to use Google Slides on our Chromebooks. The class explored the many great options, and were soon Google-Sliding right along! Now, they are creating slide shows for science class on biomes. They are writing about the biome which they chose, inserting photos, maps and all sorts of descriptions of the plants and animals that reside there. What a great tool for so many areas of the curriculum!
