Periods 3 and 5 - Your exercises are in the older packets. Please help Mr. C so that all the computers can get to PB wikis. If you have a WIKI assignment and it just won't work, post on moodle -- Mr. C will be adding some and so will I when I am able.

Periods 4 - 6 Sorry about PB wikis. Will add some draft places on the moodle site.

JUST AN UPDATE - Surgery went well on Jan. 16th -- was up in my hospital room by 5:00 pm. The hospital staff were terrific and I was released home to continue my recovery on Jan. 19th after my last lunch in the hospital.

First day home went well and rested. Second day went well - rested a lot. Yesterday I pushed it a little too much (who knew that stairs could be so tiring???) and paid with a bit more pain and immobility.

Doing well - just hard to take it easy. Miss my students and look forward to seeing you all when I am cleared to return. Be good and keep up with all those posts --- I am able to check my email and Mr. C has the power to look at them and grade them as well. :)

VOCAB: Word Understanding Record

DEFERENCE (a show of respect): When a scholar dies deference is shown by flying a flag at half mast.

LOQUACIOUS (talkative): The loquacious group of students sitting in the back of the room were chatting about the dance after school.

Today is National Be Kind to Your Teacher Day. If you could invent your own day, what would it be called? What would you want people to do on your special day?
