Do I need Google classroom?
Everything is provided in Google Slides and printable PDFs. You don’t need to use Google classroom, but you do need a Google account if you want to use the slides.
What if I don’t have 15 minutes each day?
You can combine some lessons so you are teaching longer blocks less frequently. Think about how you could incorporate these lessons into other blocks like morning work, at the end of the day, or as independent work.
