40 Google Slides with Titles, Edit Text Boxes, Directions, Movable Parts and Video Tutorial to help you and students. 

There is an example for students to see.

  • 14 Background Slides for Student to choose from to begin designing.
  • 4 slides with movable parts for students to use to decorate their ugly sweater. (You can edit to remove to add images.)
  • 6 slides for students to brainstorm, organize thoughts, and write a story about their sweater.
  • Black and white slides for students to digitally or handwrite stories. (narrative, persuasive or opinion writing include)

Make it even more fun by adding all the student’s work to a new slide show with the music provided while in PRESENT MODE to have a snowman building contest. (optional)

You can print and display them in your room or make a slideshow with the student’s finished products to view virtually. (music provided)

Slide titles and backgrounds CAN NOT be edited, just the text boxes and movable parts can be edited.

You can delete slides you don’t want to send to students, add your own directions or images to the sides of the slides to personalize.
