I’m so excited to show you a few tips and tricks that help my day run efficiently and help me easily prep with what little time I get.
Resetting Each Day
Next, I find the edit from the day before (where I reset and updated the slides) and click on that. Then, I go to each slide and update it as needed, for example, lunch choices, and how many days in school. Once a week, I update my letter, number, and core word of the week. I also update our afternoon content which is typically science, social studies, or writing once a week.
Now, this method helps me save instructional time rather than prep time, but I am okay with that because my day with my students is truly jam-packed and I need all of the time I can get.
To hyperlink a video to my slides, I find the video I want to use on YouTube. Next, I copy the link. To attach the link, I use a photo of the video from either a Google search or a screenshot of the video image. Then, I select the photo, tap the “insert link” or press command K on my keyboard, and paste the link. While doing morning meetings, I simply just click on my photo and the link pops up allowing me to click on the link.
- Hot Tip: Hyperlinks allow me to link anything into Google Slides. This means I can link my attendance so I will never forget to submit it again!
