An Easy How to For inserting tables in a Word Document

I've come to realize that a majority of my students don't know how to inset tables into a Microsoft Word document or a Google Doc.  I've created two short videos to share with my students and I'm sure many of your students could benefit from them as well.  Feel free to share them!

What other things did you think your students knew how to do and then realized that they didn't?

Top 10 Posts of April and What I've been up to

Happy May!  I hope all of the April showers brought you all some May flowers.  April was a great month.  I was fortunate enough to go to the NSTA (National Science Teachers Association) National Conference.  It was so fantastic!  If you have never been I recommend that you see if you can go at least once.  For each time slot there were about 5-8 sessions that I wanted to attended.  I got some fantastic resources and met some awesome people.
