Adding a Scrolling Marquee to New Google Sites

Follow TechyCoach’s instructions to learn how to use Google Slides as a scrolling marquee on your New Google Site by clicking on the following video:

I followed the simple and easy-to-follow steps, but continually received an error code when I tried to put the embed code on my website.

I was able to add a link, but the marquee did not look or function the way it was supposed to. I needed to use the embed code.

Clothing: A Beginning-Level Vocabulary Lesson

This presentation gives the names of a variety of clothes for students to study and practice either alone or in the classroom. Additionally, it gives the students the opportunity to distinguish between “this” and “these,” and “it is” and “they are” or “it’s” and “they’re.” As the lesson progresses, students should anticipate the questions and the answers following the question and answer patterns. If the students have already learned their colors, these clothing items could reenforce the colors and the syntax used to ask and answer color questions, as for example, “What’s this?” “It’s a red blouse,” or “What color is this blouse?” “It’s red.” The lesson ends with ten conversation questions and an opportunity for questions from the students. This could be done orally or in written format.
