Google Form Quizzes and Flubaroo

Slide1

I am making a shift to doing more electronic assessment and evaluation using Google Forms and Flubaroo

• Send a Google Form Quiz or Investigation to students to complete and then use Flubaroo to grade the Quiz

• You do not need to grade the Quiz – Flubaroo will do it for you!

• Flubaroo is an add-on for Google Drive.

Updating Products

Slide1

I have been busy since the start of the school year updating products.  If you have purchased products at my TpT shore, go to your “my purchases” tab to download the Free Updates.   Many times I will add something to a lesson as I am re-teaching it in my classroom.  I add new links to online articles and videos, new instructions, more activities etc.  It is a good idea to check back for updates on a regular basis under your “my purchases” tab.

Here are three big recent updates (Microsoft Word, Marketing Activities and Wix.com)…

#1.  I have added several new lessons for Microsoft Word 2010 and 2013.  People have been asking for more activities for Microsoft Word and I have added several over the past year.

Microsoft Office 2010 Bundle

Microsoft Office 2013 Bundle

Here are the lessons I have added…

1. Creating pictures using Shapes
2. Using Picture Tools to add and move images
3. Creating a Resume

4.  A “Setting Up a Page” activity that involves using margins, line spacing, page numbers, header/footer, page color and watermarks

5.  Adding and Formatting WordArt (Fill Color, LIne Color, Line Width, Shadow, Reflection, Bevel, 3-D Rotation, Transition)
