Just when you thought a smore couldn't get any sweeter!!

The Educator Hive is a community of educators who have shared their smore for others to adapt and use in their own classroom. There are HUNDREDS of published smores that are literally just a search button away. Easily find one that you want to adapt and with a single click, it is all yours! Edit and publish in minutes! If I was a gambler, I would be betting that you will be able to find one that applies to your grade level and/or content area! The Educator Hive is linked at the beginning of this section. Start searching today!

Free accounts have a limit of three smores, but premium accounts get you unlimited smores, as well as a few other specials features.We purchased thirty premium smore accounts and only have eight being used! If you want access to all the premium features, send me an email today and I will get you added to our SRISD account.

Analytics

Not a deal breaker, but pretty interesting for all the numbers people! Your published smore is tracked and recorded for you in several ways. I am including the data on the SRISD Virtual Spirit Day smore that I created during the spring semester to help our students and families stay connected. It reached Ireland!
