The Teacher’s Prep is a blog dedicated to fostering collaboration between teacher colleagues, sharing new ideas and finding ways to engage learners in novel activities that spark their passion for learning. As a middle school teacher, I’m excited to share ideas on classroom management and my favorite lessons and resources along with discussions on style and living the teacher life. What is the “teacher life”? It’s a life filled with love, happiness, hard work and a good sense of humor. It’s long days, quick lunches and more meetings than we care to count. Best of all, it’s our life…and we love it.

  1. I love the free Social Studies Interactive Notebook. I have a Chrome cart in my classroom and am trying to digitize materials that I normally have my students complete using paper and pencil during centers. My question is how do you "lock" parts of the slide so that students cannot edit or delete them? Thank you so much!

    1. Thanks for your question, Jenn! After creating each page in PowerPoint, I save each page as a separate PNG image. Then, in Google Slides, click the "Background" button (somewhere at the top and middle) and insert/upload each slide onto a separate page.:)
