Page 5 contains phone message pads. Use them to take messages. To do the activity, all you need is two students, one with paper and pen for taking a message. Have your students sit back to back so they cannot use non-verbal cues to understand what their partner is saying. That way the role-play will be more like a real telephone conversation. ** Leave a review for this resource and receive one free resource of your choice from my shop.

Canva - how to create a logo with a transparent background

(0)
Canva is an excellent, free, design tool that can save us time and money. It makes sense to use this instead of paying for expensive designers. This step by step guide addresses the problem of not being able to create a transparent background logo in Canva (without paying). When the background is white or doesn’t match your document, it ends up looking unprofessional. Solution:  The logo is created in Canva.  Once created and saved, we use a separate website to make the white background transparent.  It can then be used for multiple documents with ease and have that professional look to it.
