Hi there! My name is Rachael from The Classroom Nook. I’m happy to be sharing with you today about how you can take (what could be) boring lessons and turn them into interactive and engaging activities for your students.
The secret weapon? PowerPoint!
I know – PowerPoint is nothing new, but you may learn a new way for how to maximize the potential of this tool in your classroom.
