Wednesday, Dec 6 Community Service

Meet with your group and discuss what you need to complete each class day in the next two weeks that lead you into the Winter break. Decide specifically WHO will be responsible for what and write that out so that I can see your plan.

Period 7: Give this to the sub for me to see for tomorrow.


Today:Planning for success.
Poster making, collecting items, organizing, writing letters, etc.

Tomorrow (Thursday):





Wednesday: Reflect on project success and challenges.

The feminine products group has a box with things in it under my desk.
The warm things people have some things in the back of the room on the tables.
The first coloring book is back from the printer and on my desk up front. Come take a look.

Wednesday, December 6 Blogging students

You should have a blog platform designed and two posts by now.

One post is an introduction to yourself with a picture.

The next post is a playlist with links.

Today, take some time to find others' blogs here and comment on at least three different blogs, telling the writer what you enjoy about their blog design or their posts.

Then, create a third post of your choice. Choose anything you want to write about. Here are some ideas:

1. A rant about something bugging you

2. Ten things you don't know about me

3. Wednesday wonderings- questions rolling around in your head right now.

4. Review of a product that you have begun to enjoy or hate. Tell what it is and why.

Tuesday, December 5th

Make sure your blog address is on this doc.

Then, create a blog where you include a picture and introduce yourself. 

(It does not have to be a picture of you, but if you want to use a picture from your phone, email it to yourself in your school account. It can be a challenge to get a pic from the chrome book.)

Next, create another post where you make a playlist with links to the songs on youtube or the itunes store or some other source.

Links and pictures make your blog much more interesting to read.
