Post #25: Google Sites Transition, Projectors, TumbleMath

to Anita and teachers for your continued flexibility with sharing computers for MCAS. Awesome job Anita!!! That's a wrap for 2018! Wishing everyone a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.

Google Sites: As many of you know, Google released the new Google Sites interface awhile back. This week, Google announced that they will offer conversion tool for anyone who needs to convert their classic Site into the new Sites interface. This conversion tool will be available to district domains in the coming weeks. I personally like the new Sites interface and have found it easy to navigate.

Projectors: As room temps rise, please remember to turn off your projectors when they are not being used. HOT projectors can cause them to overheat, bulbs to break and decrease their performance.

TumbleBooks - Received an email this week that TumbleBooks is launching a new website in the fall for elementary schools. TumbleMath will combine math storybooks, instructional videos, games, plus quizzes and lesson plans! They are looking for math teachers interested in creating lesson plans and quizzes to help shape the collection. If you are interested in contributing your expertise, they are offering compensation.  If you are interested, send an email to

**Note that the majority of quizzes and lesson plans should be common core aligned.**
