With distance learning and the rise of 1 to 1 devices in the classroom, Google Classroom™ is a lifesaver! What I love about it is I’m able to assign my students a project or assignment through a Google App™, they complete it, and they can submit it back to me! It is the best thing ever!

Here are a few simple steps for adding a resource or assignment to Google Classroom™.

Step 1

Go to Google Classroom™. Click on “Classwork.” Then click “Create.” Then click “Assignment.”

Step 2

In the assignment section, give your assignment a title and provide directions for your students.

Step 3

Click “Add” at the bottom of the assignment section and select Google Drive™. Find the file in your Drive™ and double click to add this resource to Google Classroom™.

Step 4

Next, decide how you want students to interact with the resource.  Choose “View,” “Edit,” or “Make a Copy.”  You most likely will not want to choose edit since that will allow students to edit your original file.  Make a copy gives students their own copy to work on and will not edit your original file.

**PLEASE NOTE: If you are assigning a Google Form™, you do not need to make a copy for each student. They will receive their own copy by default.

Step 5

To finish, click “Assign” in the top corner.  This resource should now show up in each student’s own Google Classroom™. 

Digital Resources

Digital resources are a great way to use Google Apps™ and assign work for distance learning or work with technology. Check out some of my digital resources that can be used with Google Classroom™.

Digital Opinion Writing Prompts are the digital version of my popular printable writing prompts. It includes 30 different opinion writing prompts. Teachers can choose to assign a specific prompt, give students a choice between 2 or 3, or can let students choose their own prompt. The prompts are in Google Slides™ and can be used with Google Classroom™.

Nouns Digital Practice gives students a chance to practice identifying nouns and making singular nouns plural. This is available in two different formats – Google Forms™ (self-grading) and Google Slides™ (task cards with printable recording sheet). This is the digital version of my printable Nouns Around the Room Resource.
