Brilliant Idea for Sharing Worksheet

If you are sharing worksheets on a classroom website scrolling through hundreds of links can become overwhelming for the visitor. Why not take advantage of using Google Drive to share the worksheets? This will allow the teacher to share a whole folder for the month rather than separate links to each individual document. The visitors can view all Microsoft Word, PDF, Google Documents along with other file formats without installing extra programs on their computer.
