Good evening from Cooperstown, NY where my brother and I are attending David Ortiz’s induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame tomorrow. We spent some of today attending a parade of Hall of Famers and earlier in the day I explored the area on my bike. Check out my Twitter or Instagram accounts for some pictures from the day. Wherever you are this weekend, I hope you’re also doing something fun. 

These were the week’s most popular posts:
1. Pictures as Math Problem Prompts
2. A Great Place to Find Free Sound Effects
3. Custom Tables in Google Docs
4. New Text Formatting Options in Google Forms
5. Try the Fact Check Explorer
6. Create and Share Collections in Bing Maps
7. Arts, Culture, and Geography Games to Share in Google Classroom
