I tend to create a lot of work pages, posters, reference sheets and more for my friends. When I do, I like to use a font that sort of kicks it up a notch. I've even been known to throw some wacky font in my planbook to match the activity, a sure sign I need to get a life! I thought I would share with you my go to place for amazing, FREE fonts. It's a site called dafont.com. I love it like I love chocolate!
If you need a font, they have it. It's especially great for teachers. It's where I got the different fonts I used on the cover of my anchor chart binder. I wish I could show you some of the fonts I have downloaded, but Blogger won't let me. However, these are some that I use a lot:
doctor soos bold
mr and mrs popsicle
There are tons of them, and you can pick how you search for them. You can pick by style, theme, holiday, etc. I just downloaded a font called Autumn Gifts. I want to make a fall subway art poster for my dining room later, and this will be a great font for it.
I have a PC with Windows. This is how installing the font works for me. Once you find the font you want:
- Click "download"
- When the next screen pops up, click on "Open"
- Another screen will pop up with the file in it. Sometimes there is more than one file for the font. Click the one that says "True type font file."
- Then, click "Install" It only takes a second and then you can close all the windows that opened. At this point, it should be listed in your fonts.
*I'm taking the weekend off from blogging, so I will see you all on Monday. Have a great weekend! And, thanks so much for stopping by.
