Google Classroom with Kinder

Google Classroom allows for teachers to easily engage students of all ages with digital tools. Sometimes I am asked if Google Classroom can be used when teaching young kids. YES! There are many Kinder and 1st grade teachers using Google Classroom with their students. Consistently using the same tool to pass out and collect makes the process of using digital resources easier for students and teachers.

Transitional Kindergarten

Christine Pinto (@pintobeanz11) tweeted out that she is having her transitional kindergarteners use Google Classroom to create a drawing with Google Draw. She created a blank Google Drawing and attached it to Google Classroom as “Each student gets a copy.” She brought the kids down to the computer lab to do the activity.

Creating drawings from scratch is a great task, allows for ultimate student creativity. You can also provide a template for students to drag objects and model. Here is a sample Google Drawing activity where students can drag images of bears into a circle in the middle.
