Good morning from Maine where it’s going to be a chilly and sunny winter day. We had nearly two feet of fresh snow fall this week. Conditions are perfect for sledding, skiing, and making snowmen. After another week on completely online classes, I need some time outside. I don’t know about you, but my students and I are starting to feel a bit Zoomed-out. We miss being able to do hands-on work in my classroom. That’s why this post’s featured image is from when we did have in-person classes. Hopefully, by the end of the month we’ll be back in our classrooms. These were the week’s most popular posts:
1. How to Create Your Own Online Board Game
2. Musical Explorers World Map
3. Spaces – Digital Portfolios With Asynchronous Breakout Rooms
4. A Handful of Super Bowl Themed Educational Resources
5. Magnetic Poetry With Google Jamboard and Google Classroom
6. GeoQuiz – How Many Countries Can You Identify?
7. How to Share Videos in Google Classroom Without Using YouTube
