    I adore Suzanne Collin's work. If you enjoy the 'Hunger Games' trilogy, try her 'Gregor the Overlander' series. Written for a slightly younger audience, I still have no problem enjoying it, and re-reading every few years.

    I was up late last night driving my kids to the theater(someone else picking up, thank goodness!) so they could see the midnight shows. I am going to go to a matinee next week, but it is hard to wait!

    Good job getting sun. We have had unfortunate combinations of clouds, wind, or rain during the daylight hours this last week, and I'm starting to feel as if I really do live in a cave.

    Yeay, I got to the end! I just followed Sabine's example and read through your whole journal. It's after midnight (CET) which is way past my bedtime (and tomorrow night I'll have an hour less to sleep, because of DST), but it was well worth it.
    I just wish I could sleep as long as you do, but even on my days off work (I work part-time) I still have to get up at 7 because my kids have to go to school. I am planning on sleeping in on Sunday (or at least have an afternoon nap).

    I really like your challenge .

    Looking forward to following your journey on a regular basis now .

    Oh, by the way, my real name is Candy (see, I really had to read your journal, it was calling me), but you can call me chocolateandcookies

    I JUST finished it!
    I agree, I have to read it before I watch it.
    My sister went to see it tonight. (She'd bought tickets a month ago!)

    Thanks. Yeah, You can see "silver" in my hair. I think that's what I'll call it, sounds SO much "brighter/happier" than grey.

    Thanks. I'll check it out (after I finish my ESL AQ and the rest of the Hunger Games)

    I'd have had to stay and watch it too! How could you not??

    My "baby" is 16, she gets up by herself Although two mornings a week I have to drive her to band practice at 7am! But luckily, I have no problem falling back asleep

    Friday

    S2C=260

    Use Your Brain, Move & Lift, Avoid Poisons & Stupid Mistakes
    I taught "at my old school" again today. Very Easy. Two classes with 5 students in each, and then assisting in a class of 12!
    Nice.
    I read some of my ESL Chapter 12 during lunch (it's a LONG chapter)

    After work I read some of the Hunger Games on the deck (in the shade - I'm still red!)
    After supper I gave blood at a local mobile clinic. This time my iron was good (a 30 - their min is 25) but my blood pressure (the low #) was too low. We tried it once and it was 48, she got a smaller cuff, tried it again and it was 45! She told me to go for a fast walk in the hall and come back. I did (I did a short sprint too) and it was 50, so I could donate. I read Hunger Games while I was laying there. My Daughter finished work and walked to the clinic. She drove me home. Once I got home, I curled up on the couch and finished The Hunger Games.

    Then I logged into my ESL AQ course and read my "progress report" She loves me
    Not to brag, but here are some of her comments:

    I enjoyed reading your ‘Literacy’ posting on “Would I Lie to You?” I have Annie Lennox going through my head as I write this. ☺ I love your Powerpoint/response activity (I bet your students loved it too!). That’s a great way to encourage literacy skills. I had never read the term ‘fauxtography’ before – I learned something new! So cool! You’ve included a nice list of modifications and accommodations for your students (pre-teach vocabulary, shorter assignments, etc...) Great work.

    Your grammar posting on tag questions was well done and presented. I like how you model for students in an interactive manner and then direct them to do interviews – great practice and very authentic.

    Your co-operative learning task on Designing a Shelter was very creative! I, too, think ELLs would love this kind of task – I can imagine all the authentic language practice and exchange as well as the opportunity to foster relationships with their peers.

    Your lesson plan entitled ‘Video Cameras’ was interesting to think about. I don’t recall ever having a technology teacher as part of my online group – I truly enjoy reading your posts – very new to me! ☺ I think ELL students would love this assignment since it’s truly theirs and can be very unique, I imagine.

    Your grade is A+, ‘honours’. Keep up the great work!

    My oldest is 16, he has to get up by himself too as he has to leave early.

    Very nice comments on your assignments! You can be proud

    A friend posted this on Facebook. It made me laugh and I had to share:

    I created a lesson called "Would I Lie To You". It was about ethics in photojournalism and photo manipulation.

    Fautography:
    Fraudulent photography
    News images faked by various means to promote an ideological agenda or to manipulate the emotions of the viewer
    Faux - false
    tography - 2nd half of photography
    Any dishonest or faked news photo
    Photoshop, staging photos, misleading captions
