    Hi,
    Could you describe the types of activities that students will do for each country? I saw one was color the continent, I was wondering what other interactive jobs the students would have to complete. Also it seems that there are some extra “The”s at the start of some of the slides.

    • Deedee

      Sure, they watch the video. The find the continent and color it. They respond with information about a tradition they learned about. They color the flag. πŸ™‚

      • Karen Berry

        Sounds great, thank you!

    Are these available as PDF? I am face to face.

      Yes, they are available in Deanna Jump’s store if you are look for printables.

    How do students draw in the google slides format?

    • Deedee

      They use the Scribble Tool. πŸ™‚

  4. MicheleM

    Can they be used to teach kindergartners virtually and not assigned?

    • Deedee

      Yes, you would want to use the Google Slides version for that. πŸ™‚

  5. maria

    is the Holiday bundle you have here suitable for Pre-K?
    Do you have other resources for Pre-K?

    • Deedee

      If you did the activities together, absolutely. But it would be hard for them to complete the tasks on their own.

  6. Marcie

    With any us if back to in person learning will you be creating activities for the classroom once again? Also if I purchased holidays around the year already from Deanna is her being update?
    Thanks

    • Deedee

      Yes! We made this together! However, this is not included in her previous unit. πŸ™‚ Same information, but we recorded each powerpoint to turn it into a movie and made digital response pages. πŸ™‚

      I’m hearing from many teachers that they like the digital options, so I will try to include both in the future. Printable and digital. πŸ™‚

  7. Liz

    I don’t use Google or Seesaw with my kiddos virtually. Is this available as a Powerpoint?

    • Deedee

      Originally, it was not, but I’m finding some schools have limited access to files outside of their organization. When I add the final 5 files, I will include the PowerPoint files.

  8. Kimberly D Vann

    When we purchase through your website, is there a way we can always come back to down load our purchases if needed?

    • Deedee

      Yes! You just log into your account and you can download your purchases whenever you want.

  9. Emily

    Is this another collab with Deanna Jump? I bought her unit last year and don’t want to β€œdouble buy” it!! Thanks

    • Deedee

      Yes! We made this together! However, this is not included in her previous unit. πŸ™‚ Same information, but we recorded each powerpoint to turn it into a movie and made digital response pages. πŸ™‚

    Hi Deedee! I am having some issues with permissions on the video and audio. My students are being asked to request access no matter how I set my share setting so I’m wondering if its a setting in the original. Any suggestions for getting this for my kids?
    Thanks!

    • Deedee

      Yes, sadly that seems to be a setting your school administration has set up. No matter what I do on my end the issue still remains. ( have gotten a few hundred requests for access that I have on automatic approval, but it does not seem to matter.) You can talk to your school tech department. I think the only solution is for you to load the videos individually. There is a link in the unit so you can do that. I’m sorry, I wish there was another solution.
