Free technology for teachers: documents, slides and simulations

Free technology for teachers: documents, slides and simulations

Good evening from Maine where we had a nice day outside despite the clouds and rain. My mom came to visit and my daughters loved showing her all the fun things in our yard, including wild raspberries and blueberries, our garden vegetables, and their little clubhouse in the backyard. Getting an ice cream was also a highlight of the visit. I hope you also had a nice start to your weekend.
