Class Procedures and Reminders
Project Stack. I'm still making my way through the stack of assignments: if you turned in your Storybook Topics on Sunday, you should have comments back from me, and my goal for today is to return comments for everything that was turned in before Friday. You can check the stack to make sure I received your assignment! If something comes in today, it will go to the top of the stack for Monday.
Week 3 Blog Comments. The blog commenting assignment is now available, with new random groups! There is also an extra credit responding option if you want to read and comment on some Famous Last Wordss posts. I hope you will enjoy that, and if you have not been doing the Famous Last Words option, this might inspire you to give it a try!
The following items are for fun and exploration:
So Many Books. I know I'm not the only person who has this feeling: "So many books, so little time."
Words to Watch: Today's words to watch out for are ROLE and ROLL. For details, see this blog post.
Featured Storybook: Adventures through the East. Travel to Thailand, Nepal and India, with Hanuman himself as your travel guide, along with some help from Jambavan and Sugriva.
FREE eBook: The Cat and the Mouse: A Book of Persian Fairy Tales by Hartwell James. This blog post provides additional information about the contents of the book; one of the stories, as you can guess from the image below, is "The Cat and the Mouse."
Words of Wisdom: Today's proverb poster is A watched pot never boils (an English proverb). Details at the Proverb Lab. This is one of those proverbs that is not literally true... but it makes sense metaphorically.
Ramayana Image: Today's Ramayana image is Rama's Army. As you can see, it is an army of monkeys and bears!
Friday Event on Campus: There will be a "Diversity in Music" performance with free food starting at 6:30PM in the Zarrow Hall Community Room: Arashi Taiko drummers, African dancers, Latin Dance Club dancers, and more (details). Find out more about this and other events at the Campus Calendar online.
Note: You can page back through older blog posts to see any announcements you might have missed, and you can check out the Twitter stream for information and fun stuff during the day.
