Thursday, Nov 5

Good day students.  To be poetic, here’s the scoop on why I am not with you:

My little one, innocently unaware

Awoke with a gasp in the wee hours of the morning

To find the nasty, relentless flu virus

Had possessed his little being and left him

stranded, in puddles of his own vomit.

If this sounds gross – imagine being me during the night, having to deal with this mess, and one sweet, sick little boy.  Our household got little sleep, and today we will battle this virus, trying to avoid infecting all of us.

Mr. Dohoo is in with you today.  Here is the scoop for all my classes:

English 421:

  • You will be working independently in the library on your illustrated poetry assignment.  You can use Mr. Dohoo and Ms. Gullander for support.
  • Remember that you have a novel reflection due today on the specific prompt: What connections can you make between the topics and issues in your book and your life/ your world.  Your responses should be submitted via google classroom, if at all possible.  The passcodes for google classroom are as follows: Block A – 6sfpze  Block B – c71nq75 .  If you cannot submit via the classroom, then submit a written/printed copy to Mr. Dohoo.
  • Have a great class.  I am out next Monday and Tuesday, and Ms, Kennedy will be in with you again.  You have another period in the library on Monday, and I have a poetry activity planned for Tuesday that should help you in revising your own poem.  I will see you again next Thursday, after Remembrance day.

English 431:

  • I am so sorry to miss our planned show and tell today.  As a class, you can make a decision whether you want to go ahead with the show and tell, and have a classmate videotape your presentation on his/her cellphone, or whether you would prefer to postpone until next week.
  • I booked the Chromebooks for today, so you can continue working on your independent novel assignment – the slideshow with limited text, and your written component that responds to 5 different sections.  If you don’t have a copy of the assignment, open the file on this website.  It’s under the English 431 page.  When completed, these items should be submitted via Google classroom.  The passcode for this class is – crijkvu  They are due today.
  • Have a great class.  Be respectful, and work hard to complete and submit your work.
