Winter, Animals, and Fun – The Week in Review

Good evening from Maine where my daughters are eagerly anticipating Santa’s arrival. Tomorrow morning I won’t be in the mood to write blog posts or even think about my blog. That’s why I’m breaking from my pattern and writing the week-in-review on a Friday evening. 

As I look toward the end of the year I’d like to say a big thank you to all of you who have supported my work throughout this year and year’s past (some of you have been with me for more than decade). Whether you’ve purchased one of my courses or ebooks or you’ve simply shared my blog posts with your friends and colleagues, your support is appreciated. 

These were the week’s most popular posts:
1. A New Way to Add Students to Flipgrid
2. How to Modify & Share Canva Templates
3. Six Reasons to Try Tract for Remote & Hybrid Learning
4. A Platypus in My House! Fun and Learning Through Augmented Reality
5. How to Use Google Keep as a Comment Bank
6. Nine Interactive Maps Depicting the History of the United States
7. 21 Activities and Lessons That Have a Winter Theme
