These Digital Companions for Guided Math have been created to accompany my Guided Math units. These are a completely different resource and are interactive slides, meant to be used with Google Slides in Google Classrooms (or any platform that allows Google Slides).
How Do The Digital Companions Work?
They involve moveable pieces and editable text boxes where students can interact with the problems and type their answers. Check out this example from my two-step word problem Digital Companion.
In this two-step word problem Digital Companion, students will use the moveable pieces to visually represent the word problem. In this problem, students will click and drag astronauts 3 astronauts to each of the four rockets, plus will add an additional two astronauts to the moon. Once they have their answer, they’ll type it in the blue box.
How These Can Help With Distance Learning
The Digital Companions align to my Guided Math units so that they cover the same topics.
That means, you can teach from the unit in class (or even record yourself teaching the unit), and then assign the Digital Companions for at-home practice.
The Digital Companions were made to be kid-friendly and family-friend! They include a few teaching slides at the beginning, just to refresh students’ memories, or help any parents who may be supporting their child through distance learning. After the teaching slides are ten problems for students to try on their own.
But, these Digital Companions are not only for distance learning situations! They can be a digital math center in your classroom or can be used as part of your instruction.
