PDF Split

Image from
I was smack dab in the middle of working on my plans for the upcoming week when I had to stop and share this.  I wanted to assign a math Exemplars to my students.  I figured I would post the page on Edmodo or I could try using Evernote.  I am working out the whole process of sharing files and notebooks with my students and having them write on it using their iPads, then resubmit it to me to grade. All using the iPad.

The problem was I only needed my students to see the first page of the PDF file not the entire document.  If you know Exemplars, each problem also has possible students solutions and other teacher resources attached to the PDF.  Then I remembered reading somewhere about a PDF splitter.  So I thought I would give it a try.  I went online and searched "PDF splitter" and there it was.  It was so easy to do.  You don't have to download or join to use it.  Oh, did I mention it was FREE!

Step 1:  Save the original file to your desktop.
Step 2: Browse and locate the file (upload to site).
Step 3: Enter the page numbers you want split. (for me I entered pages 1 to 1)

Click on Split!  and you're done!  Easy Peasy!

Now I can attach just that 1 page the students need on Edmodo or Evernote.  If anyone uses Evernote to send and receive student work, please share how you are doing that.  It would make my life so much easier!


  1. Hi Sheila! I just found your blog! I love it. It inspired me and I am proud of you! I am very new at blogging and I like the idea of it. (Actually my first post was last summer and my second post was exactly one year later. I have a few more skills now than I did then.) I agree with you that it is nice to get your thoughts and ideas about teaching into words. I need to come down to your room sometime and check it out!
