Create your Wordle Poster, and BE SURE TO SAVE IT FIRST in your Documents folder. When you are all done, SAVE AS... to the Wordle Poster folder in:

Add your picture if you want! Use one of the still cameras on my desk. To copy the picture from the camera to the computer, remove the memory card and insert it into the SD slot on front of your computer.

For directions in removing the card and inserting it into the computer, click here.

  Congratulations!! Your Wordle Poster should be complete! This is a great way to tell the world about you!


New Updates!

For the past few weeks I've been working to put together a site for our teachers in Lake Stevens to easily find sample SBA questions that help them understand how students will be tested each year. This often leads to deeper understanding of the standards themselves. Click on over to the SBA Samples site and easily find all the CCSS Standards by grade level and any sample questions in the format used on the Smarter Balanced Assessment.
