How do you copy a worksheet with a master format such as a quarterly or monthly layout? Please don't say copy and paste! This choice does not give you an exact copy and you'll waste tons of time trying to re_format columns and re_create other formatting. Although the worksheet tab shortcut menu is one way to copy, especially across workbooks (the Move or Copy option), a fast and easy approach is to hold [Ctrl] while dragging a worksheet tab to a new location in the workbook. Your mouse pointer will look like a page with a plus (+) sign. Release the mouse first and then [Ctrl] to see the new worksheet. Finish by renaming the copy.
To know if you are on the right track with worksheets in your classroom, answer (honestly) these simple questions: _ Do my students groan when I hand out a worksheet? (The answer should be no.) _ Are my lesson plans based on worksheets? (The answer should be no.) _ Do I feel anxiety if I don't have worksheets copied? (The answer should be no.) _ Are students excited about learning in my classroom? (The answer should be yes!)
