The Week in Review – Here Comes the Snow!

Good morning from Maine where, if the weather forecast is correct, by this time tomorrow my cleanly raked lawn will be covered in a foot of fresh snow. It sure feels like it’s going to snow. I’m looking forward to doing some sledding and making snowmen with daughters. I’m not looking forward to shoveling. I hope that you also have something fun that you’re looking forward to this weekend. 

These were the week’s most popular posts:

1. City Walks – Hear and See Cities Around the World
2. Twelve Free Apps for Math Instruction
3. Write on PDFs in Google Classroom – Good Tool for Math
4. Three G Suite/ Google Workspaces Updates to Note
5. Inexpensive Equipment to Improve Online Meetings
6. Dozens of Bell Ringers to Start Your Social Studies Lessons

7. Three Ways to Create Online Forms to Collect Samples of Your Students’ Work
