We all played Show & Tell as kids in elementary school. The instructions were simple: (1)Show off your brand new, shiny Buzz Lightyear toyand (2)Tell the class that he speaks if you press the red button and wait for them to “ooh” and “ahh”.
Of course, the show and tell item didn’t have to be a Buzz Lightyear toy.It could have been a pet dog. Or a Rubik’s cube. Or even…a Rocketbook Hack.
We asked the universe’s best and brightest productivity experts to play some show and tell with their favorite Rocketbook hacks. Keep reading to be transported to your 1st grade classroom and enjoy Rocketbook Show & Tell:
