At Home Word Walls for Distance Learning
Unrestricted Use
Public Domain
Rating
5.0 stars
Overview:

I used the idea of the Virtual Word Wall from the Ready, Set, Coteach team. This blank template is just a Google Slide with a table.  You can customize the numbers of rows or column, as well as anything else when you make your own copy.  I like consistency for the user experience, in this case, first grade English Learners.  So the colors stay the same and the format is the same each week.While mine focus on supporting our new adoption of HMH Into Reading, a virtual word wall can work in any content area, at any age level.  It could also be in a World Language setting.

The remote learning lesson plan is based on Steven M. Constantino's five principles of family engagement.
