Let's Teach Turkey!!!

It's turkey time folks!  Every November I have done at least a little something with my students on turkeys. This year I created a nonfiction turkey unit!  It comes with an All About Turkeys informational text, close reading questions/activities and extended activities(CCSS aligned).  Click on the picture for a closer look.
So much to do and so little time.  Hope you are having a great week!

How to Print Full Scale in PowerPoint

Are you wanting to print something in PowerPoint, but it doesn't seem to print full size?  Angry at that pesky white border? Here is the solution!  I had a customer ask how to do this and wanted to share with everyone.

Go to File, Print.  Then follow these steps:
First, select the slides you want to print.  

Then select 'Scale to fit paper'.  Now you are ready to print! 

By the way, did you know you don't HAVE to print in color?  I save on ink by printing mostly in grayscale.  Just select 'Grayscale' from the drop down menu (shown above).

I hope these tips help you out!  Happy printing!
