Good morning from Maine, where we had a great week of beautiful fall weather. The nights have been cool, the days warm and sunny, and the leaves are turning into vibrant shades of red, yellow, and orange. My daughters can’t wait for me to make big piles of jumping leaves. That is what we will do today. I hope you also have something fun planned for your weekend. These were the most popular posts of the week:

1. Taskade: a complete project planning solution for teachers and students
2. Two new Google Docs features to consider
3. How to convert a spreadsheet to multimedia cards
4. The science of cake! – And 83 other food science lessons
5. How to add watermarks to Google documents
6. Five Google Earth Features for Teachers
7. Spaces: Capturing and Celebrating Student Growth

Thanks for your support!

A big thank you also to the companies whose advertising helps keep the lights on.
