It’s April 1st and I was thinking about adding some fun links to fun April Fool’s pranks you could play on your students, but I decided not to do it. Let’s hope, it’s April and that means the warmer weather is coming. It’s also Tuesday and that means another edition of Chad’s Choices from the Community. Take some time to explore more articles and people from the DEN Community, the best educator community around! If you’d like to explore previous posts in this series, you can do so here.
