I'm seeing some love for Mufferaw...that's another fun one.
I love Marker Felt as well!
I use Chalkboard for most school things, especially letters home and my lesson plans. Sometimes I use Times New Roman. Chalkboard is like Comic Sans.
I like Marker Felt for signs and posters, only if it's something where I'll be using a large font.
I love using a font called Chalkboard. It is a cute font that is easy to read and is kid friendly.
I love to download new fonts.
As for 'traditional' fonts, Marker Felt is my go-to. If it needs to be more professional, I will use Century Gothic if I am on a PC or Tahoma if I am on a Mac.
I HATE COMIC SANS!
I like Verdanna.
I had no idea this was possible!! I just tried it and it worked like a charm!
MissScrimmage, on rare occasions something weird will happen with a pdf... but the rest of the time, printing/saving to pdf is the greatest thing since transferable media.
I use Cambria a lot for my text, and then a font called Alegreya for my titles. All of my hand-outs are kind of themed that way.
I know that on Google docs, you sometimes can't print a certain font to a PDF for whatever reason until you go to Google Webfonts, and add it to your collection, and then open it up again. It's really annoying because sometimes you have to do it multiple times on the same computer, and you have to do it for every font.
Thanks for the head's up! I created a letter this week with an adorable font that I don't have at school. I tried printing at home but I am out of ink. Saved the letter as a PDF and now I'll be able to print it at school. It's a miracle!
I tend to use Century Gothic. A principal pointed out that it was the font used for the big state tests and she used it so that the students got used to reading it. It made sense at the time and so I have used it almost exclusively ever since.
I'm simple, I almost always use Times New Roman.
I use Ariel, and Comic Sans (don't judge, lol.) I use them because I remember reading somewhere that it's helpful for students with dyslexia. I figure it won't hurt, so I usually stick with Ariel.
