The Week in Review - Wacky Weather and Popular Posts

Good afternoon from the Free Technology for Teachers world headquarters in frozen Woodstock, Maine. It was a crazy weather week here as we went from sub-zero to 45F to sub-zero again in three days. The wacky weather provided a great excuse for me to take my daughter on her first visit to Cabela's. She was quite curious about all of the animals that she saw. No matter what the weather is in your part of the world, I hope that you have a great weekend!

Here are this week's most popular posts:
1. New Google Classroom Features Focus on Individual Instruction
2. Track Progress Toward Goals With This Google Sheets Template
3. Storyboard That Offers Lesson Plans for Every Month
4. How to Quickly Access Ten Google Sheets Templates for Teachers
5. How to Use Pixiclip to Create Instructional Videos
6. Two Tools That Help Students Analyze Writing
7. 10 Free Ways to Create Videos on Chromebooks
