The Week In Review - Signs of Spring

Good morning from Maine where one of my favorite signs of spring has returned, the Tim Hortons Roll Up the Rim to Win contest. This annual event adds a little fun to my coffee routine from late winter into early spring. Like the beginning of every baseball season, hope springs eternal with each cup of coffee.

Another sign of spring for me is an increase in my travel schedule. Over the next few weeks I'll be speaking at events in four cities. Next week I'll be in Little Rock, Arkansas and Toronto. The following week I'll be in Raleigh, North Carolina. And the week after that I'll be speaking in Salt Lake City. If you're attending any of these conferences, please say hello.

Here are this week's most popular posts:
1. How to Use Google Slides to Organize Research
2. Rubrics for Blogging and Multimedia Projects
3. Kids Can Create Alphabet Books With Alphabet Organizer
4. Browse Hundreds of Old Newspapers in the Google News Newspaper Archive
5. Students Will Enjoy Creating Fiction Stories With These Story Starters
6. StoryToolz - Writing Prompts and More
