Random Writers Google Slides activity is great to encourage self-editing and creative writing in your students. Created by Kerri Healey, COTA, this Google Slides activity can be used for telehealth sessions, distance learning or in person on your computer.
The information to make a copy of the Random Writers Google Slides will be available electronically immediately following payment. You will need a Google Drive to use the resource. Each purchase is a single license, for a single teacher, therapist or parent. If additional professionals wish to use the product, the buyer must purchase additional copies.
How Do the Random Writers Google Slides Work?
- Download the information to make a copy of the Google Slides for your own Google Drive.
- Use the slides in PRESENT mode and follow the directions on each slide. You do not need to provide remote access – you are just sharing your screen.
- Students will practice working memory skills, handwriting, creativity, and self-editing!
Details About the Random Writers Google Slide Deck
This activity comes with directions on how to use the 20+ slides. Your students will need a pencil and paper.
Step One: Students will view a slide with unusual pictures. They will free write about what they see on their own paper.
Step Two: When they are done, you will review the Handwriting Checklist to remind the students about correct letter formation, spacing and punctuation.
Step Three: Students will view the cartoon character teacher’s sentence and edit the errors.
Want to add in working memory skills? Have the students study the unusual pictures for one minute. Complete an exercise or different activity for several minutes. Ask the children to write down everything they remember about the picture they studied for one minute.
The Random Writers Google Slides activity can work on any screen sharing, distance learning platform, as you don’t need to provide remote control to participate. All your students need is paper and something to write with to practice their writing!
