Time Saver

Teachers need ideas to help them work smarter not harder. Here are two easy quick to learn ideas that can help you become more organized, more productive, and spend less time looking for specific calendar dates. For example, if you are teaching about the different phases of the moon and you want to find a calendar that gives you that information, Google calendar has this power.  

Once you are in Google calendar look down the left side of the page and locate the other calendars’ drop box menu. Click on the drop down arrow and go to Browse Interesting Calendars.

From the next page you will see an assortment of other calendars that might help you such as all the Chinese Holidays or when baseball season starts.

To add one, simply click on the link on the right side of the page that says “subscribe.”  You can unsubscribe to any calendar at any time.

Another quick trick when working with your calendar is to simply press the letter “Q” on your keyboard and a dialogue box will appear that allows you to quickly add an event.  Type in your event and then edit the details such as time, description of event, location, and add any other special notes. 

Google Calendar is very powerful. Explore and learn more.
