Well, school begins tomorrow and as usual, very little is planned. It's not really a problem since there are no students tomorrow - just long meetings - lots of Powerpoint presentations in the dark. The real fun begins on Tuesday.
In other news - I uploaded many mnemonic songs to the "Songs and Videos" tab. These have been extremely useful every year. I really should have uploaded these a long time ago - but they are here now, ready to be sung.
As I say to my classes, "Ready! In a key of your choice..."
Oh Summer, we hardly knew you! I clarified some of the RPG blogs based upon emails I had received from people wishing to implement it in their own classroom. I added the map to the second adventure - Land of the Lotus Eaters which was referenced but not uploaded. It's in the Google drive with the Second RPG adventure. I added a new Card and Board Game - Latinum Bellum (yes, would prefer Bellum Latinum but that would place it in the wrong place in the list of blogs-oh well) I also write a new blog under the "This I Believe Tab" entitled "The Energy Continuum."
Not added yet but I plan to create a new tab called "Ten Minutes Before the Bell" which lists various activities that can be done when there is not enough time to start something new but too much time to leave students unsupervised.
