Sunday Sit, Sip, and “Sync” ~ 8-24-2014

Many times our textbooks have online resources that we would like to use as hard copy.

In the case of an online quiz, it might be more appropriate than your printed resource material,
and you would like to use scheduled computer lab time for more creative assessments than multiple-choice tests or quizzes.

We’ve made a quick video tutorial to show you how to copy online material quickly and easily into a Microsoft Word® document.

If you have a website or blog, you might want to use Microsoft Word® to write your draft using spell and grammar check. It is always best to avoid copying directly from Microsoft Word® since it also contains formatting that might conflict with your website’s or blog’s settings. Copying it into a plain text document before your website will remove that formatting.

We hope this makes your life a little easier.
Wishing you a wonderful Sunday and a great week!

Monday Morning Message ~ 3-21-2011

Here is a quick way to motivate your students to write fairy tales.

Using the “Insert Drop Cap” option in Microsoft Word, students can easily add a special look to their stories.

In simple steps, students need to:

1. Type their story using Microsoft Word.

2. Once the story is typed, highlight the first letter and choose
a. “Insert”
b. “Drop Cap”  choosing “Dropped”.

3. Highlight the dropped cap letter and change the size, the font, and the color as best suits the student and the story.

The video below should help answer any questions, and is best viewed in full screen.

Have a great week!
Spring has finally arrived, so here’s hoping recess is outside for you and your students!
