Using Google Docs

Today we explored Google Drive again, but this time we used Google Docs and Read and Write to help us with our writing.

Once we had a google doc opened (from our classroom assignments) we had to insert a drawing that we got to create. After completing our picture, we needed to add the words to describe the picture.

Before we started on our own, Mrs. vanRees taught us how to use the microphone to record our thinking. For the most part, the computer was able to type exactly what we wanted to say. We needed to remember to speak clearly, but it worked really well - even with a 'not so quiet' classroom! 

Here are a few examples of our work today. We were allowed to draw what we wanted, as long as it was a picture (not just random lines or icons) and were able to talk/write about it.

How have you used Google Docs and/or Read and Write in your classroom?
