Cards, Assessments, and Poems – The Week in Review

Good morning from Maine where the April showers have arrived a couple of days early. That’s okay because all week long it was sunny and warm which let my kids and dogs get lots of outdoor playtime. Speaking of outdoor playtime, next week I’m hosting a webinar about how to blend technology into outdoor lessons.

This week I didn’t do any traveling. I stayed home and hosted some some webinars including a Best of the Web presentation. If you missed my Best of the Web webinar, you can view it right here.

These were the week’s most popular posts:
1. Make Trading Cards for Historical and Fictional Characters
2. Fast & Fun Formative Assessment – Slides
3. Langscape – An Interactive Map of Languages
4. Theme Poems and Shape Poems – Activities for Poetry Month
5. How to Create an Activity Tracker With Google Forms & Sheets
6. The Story of the United States Told in 141 Interactive Maps
7. Check Out the Periodic Table of iOS 12 Apps for Education
