Class Procedures and Reminders
Project Stack. On Wednesday, I finished replying to all the assignments that had been turned in by 4PM on Sunday. You can check the stack to make sure I received your assignment, and I'll keep working my way through the stack today.
The following items are for fun and exploration:
Attention. Beware the dangers of multitasking: You can do anything, but not everything.
Words. This is a great Google Maps and Google Translate Mash-Up: European Word Translator. Type in the word you want to study, and see how it appears on the map:
Words from India. This wonderful English word comes from Serendib, an old name for Sri Lanka: SERENDIPITY.
Featured Storybook. This project is from the Indian Epics class: Mysterious Museum: The Vahanas' Stories. In this museum, the artwork takes on a life of its own, and you will hear stories about the gods as told by the gods' own vehicles, the vahanas.
Words of Wisdom: Today's saying is Every blade of grass gets its own drop of dew (a Scottish proverb). Find out more at the Proverb Lab. The beauties of nature provide some wonderful metaphors for life!
Growth Mindset: Today's growth mindset cat is doing the cat equivalent of asking questions: In order to learn, we must probe and poke. You can find out more at the Growth Mindset blog.
