I recently started using Canva* and I love it. Canva seems to have unlimited options to showcase design and creativity. So far I've used it to create custom images, a blog banner, and Instagram posts.
Here's My Canva Summer To-Do List
- Make a few cool Google Classroom banners for next year - one for science, social studies, and crew (homeroom).
- Design a few badges for my extension groups.
- Upgrade a few science investigations for use with Kami.
- Make anchor chart posters for classroom norms, independent work expectations, and collaborative work expectations.
