The digital age has exploded in the classroom! Every room you walk into has laptops and hand held devices. Students are recording themselves and creating videos to show what they know. It’s a fantastic way of learning, and we need to take advantage of it! Digital learning is now the new learning in every classroom.

The first part of this free resource is a quick, interactive activity on rhyming. It’s a great activity to use when you want to assess your students, but not so much with pen and paper. Take a look to see how it all works!
Rhyming is a big part of the reading process. It helps readers understand word families and how words are built. Here are some of the rhyming standards you will find in a kindergarten class:
Recognize and produce rhyming words.
Add or substitute individual sounds (phonemes) in simple, one-syllable words to make new words.
Identifying and producing rhyming words.
The next part of this free resource is addition practice. This can be used as a technology center to practice early stages of addition. And, no need to have counters or manipulatives. Each slide illustrates the addition problem for your visual learners. Here’s what the standards have to say about addition in kindergarten.
Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings1, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.
Solve addition and subtraction word problems, and add and subtract within 10, e.g., by using objects or drawings to represent the problem.
Model the action of joining to represent addition and the action of separating to represent subtraction.
