Reading question stems are a great way to hold your students accountable for their reading. Instead of having them log the time they spent reading or writing down the titles of books on a calendar, you can give your students question stems to respond to the text they read.
I have created digital question stems so you can assign your students question stems in Google Classroom. These align to grade level expectations for literature and informational text standards.

You can edit the directions for your students. This gives you the opportunity to assign a specific text, page, paragraph or give any other directions for the assignment. Students will type their responses to the question stems directly onto the slides.

You can delete any extra slides from the assignment. (There are over forty slides for both informational text and literature.)

Here's a video showing how it works.

Are you looking for ways to help your students learn about science independently? I've created Digital Learning Science Lessons that can be used for distance learning. These resources are simple and straightforward so your students can work on them even if they don't have a lot of help at home. 
 Science lessons for students to work on digitally
There are many topics--with more being added! They include videos your students can watch, and visuals to help them learn about a topic. There are simple tasks within the lesson for students to complete. Some lessons have students read a paragraph and answer questions, while other lessons have students do a sort or move objects. Most lessons include some type of writing for students to complete. Just assign these lessons using Google Classroom! Grab them here!
Adding and subtracting fractions is a concept first taught in fourth grade. In previous grades, students have been taught about ordering, comparing, and equivalent fractions. Now they are ready to take what they have learned and apply it to addition and subtraction.
One way to teach this concept is through number lines and picture models. You can draw a pizza on the board (divided into eighths) and write down as many addition equations as possible to show how to add up to 8/8 or 1 whole pizza. You can act this out with your students. This introduction allows you to explain how you only add the numerators.

Once you have done this activity, you can represent it on a number line. Have your students draw a number line to show eighths, and then have them represent their addition equation on the number line.
After you have taught addition this way, you can do the same thing, just reversed, for subtraction.
