Five for Friday


Once you start making your own hamburger buns, there's no going back.

my tech discovery

This is probably not a great revelation to many people, but it was to me, so I'm sharing just in case. I heard that many people save all the slides in their Power Point presentations as png files. Obviously to do this one at a time would take forever. I knew there was a way to convert all the slides, but I could never get it to work. I finally figured it out! And just for fun I made a tutorial. (I'm on maternity leave, so I spend a lot of time sitting around holding a baby and playing on my computer/phone. Usually I wouldn't have time for this.

First you go to file and select "Export" and "change file type."

Choose the file type you want. In this case: PNG, and click save as.

This is where I made my discovery. I found I had to save to my pictures folder. I'm not sure why because when I save an object as a picture I don't have to do this. When I didn't choose the picture folder (which was not selected as the default either) I was only getting one slide to save and getting an error message. Click save and when prompted "all the slides"

And now there's a file in the pictures folder with all the slides as PNGs.  Please tell me I'm not the only one who didn't know this?

With Valentine's day approaching I've been working on some new creations. First is a math practice dollar deal focusing on addition and subtraction.

I'm also working on these fun Valentine's Day math problem task cards. There are 60 problems including all problem types. There are three sets of 20 cards at three different levels.  They will be discounted for the first 2 days, so stay tuned and follow my store so you don't miss it. They would be great for 1st, 2nd, or 3rd.

I am loving Instagram! (I know I am extremely late to this party.) Clearly, I am having way too much fun with these photo editing apps. I've been participating in this #foursquarefridays hosted by First Grade Buddies. Join us!
