WEEK 8 : D

WEEK 8! 

A HUGE THANK-YOU to Mrs. Grubbs for combining the two classes today! We only had 11 students between us!!  Hoping all of your trips are going well and to those who are sick – praying you all get well very soon!!

WEEK 8 – I can’t believe it!  We only have 4 more classes until the end of the first half!  Time only flies by when you’re having fun, so thank you to this class for being the cat’s pajamas and the bee’s knees!  (Etymology – Coined in the 1920’s by cartoonist Tad Dorgan. He also came up with “the bee’s knees.”)

***********************************************************Here’s one of my favorite poems – (Beware of dependence on spell checker!)

THE SPELL CHECKER POEM:

Eye halve a spelling chequer

It came with my pea sea

It plainly marques four my revue

Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a key and type a word

And weight four it two say

Weather eye am wrong oar write

It shows me strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid

It nose bee fore two long

And eye can put the error rite

Its rare lea ever wrong.

Eye have run this poem threw it

I am shore your pleased two no

Its letter perfect awl the weigh

My chequer tolled me sew.
