A Teacher Tech Tip

Ever need a special character like , but you can't remember the key combination to create it?  Did you ever want to put in a symbol and you couldn't remember how?  Would you like to use a  in your writing and not have to put it in as a picture and have to get it in the just right spot?  Or maybe put a by the spot your students need to write their answer or their name?

Here is a neat website, shared by Tammy Worcester's Tech Tip of the Week, that will allow you to do those things easily!  I just  how easy it is to use.  All you do is click on the image, then go to your page and paste it.  It is so simple.


Instructions:

  1. 2.Click the desired character.
    (This will automatically copy it to your computer’s clipboard.)
    Note - Do not right-click or control-click. Just a regular mouse-click will copy it.

  2. 3.Go to wherever you want to paste the character.
    This could be a Word document, a Google doc, an email message, a blog post, or even a Tweet. You can paste the character anywhere.  

  3. 4.Paste.  Holding down the control key and typing the letter V will paste the last thing you copied to your clipboard into your document or PowerPoint and is fast.

  4. 5.That’s it!

    ☞Think of all the time that can be saved!

Thats awesome! Thank you. I've been trying to figure out how to type long and short vowel sounds... Like an a with a line over it or a little scoop for the short sound. Does anyone know how to do that?

I am glad you all are enjoying it. I thought it was so easy to use.

Della,
I found the short and long vowel sounds in the symbol package in Latin Extended A on my computer. I have Windows 7 so I don't know if it is in the earlier version or not to be honest. Go in like you are going to add a symbol and they are there. They have what I would use for both the upper and lower case. Following is an example of what they look like. I copied and pasted some here.
