Add Voice in Google Classroom

If a picture is worth a thousand words, how many words is your voice worth? If you use Google Classroom you know that it is easy for kiddos to access assignments, links and resources. It works well with all grades, but reading is tough for our littles. How can we make Classroom work better for our struggling readers and kindergarteners? Add our voice as directions (and assignment comments) where text would be. This is super easy to do with the Talk and Comment Chrome Extension.

Add Voice in Google Classroom:

1. Install the Talk and Comment Chrome Extension.

2. Make sure it is enabled on the right side of your screen.

3. Open up your Google Classroom.

4. Add an assignment or announcement.

5. Include title, description, and any documents you need.

6. Click the icon on the right side of your screen.

7. Record your verbal directions.

8. Copy the link. Add this as a link in your Classroom assignment, but delete the text (Voice Comment) off of the link.

9. Done!

Now your kiddos can hear the things they need to know!
