Good morning! It's a cold morning here in Cleveland, OH. Not much has changed with my husband in the past day; the healing process takes time and the best things he can do are rest, exercise when he's feeling up to it, and try to be patient. His surgeon will be checking up on him personally tomorrow (she has been at a conference Tuesday through today), so it will be exciting to see her again and hear her thoughts. She's amazing!
I snapped a pic of my husband's IV pole yesterday since it was *packed* with all sorts of things. They had seven different pumps running at the same time with all sorts of vitamins and medications for him. The yellow bag is his liquid "dinner" that I was telling you about. Even though he had surgery, it's not safe for him to try eating yet until his digestive system is awake, so he's lucky that he can keep getting calories this way because it helps with energy and healing!
I hope you're looking forward to finding out what happens next in The Call of the Wild. Here are your assignments for today.
To Do List
1. Do warm-up questions #16-20. Check the answers with the sub.
2. Listen to The Call of the Wild and follow along in your Kindles. (Chapter Two)
--> You will need to have the sub play CD #1. Please listen to Tracks #39-72 as a whole
class and follow along in your Kindles.
--> Remember, it is each class' responsibility to keep the Kindles charged. If your Kindle
is running out of battery life, make sure it gets plugged back in when you are done
reading. Any Kindle that is showing a green light when it is plugged in is fully
charged; you can switch the power supply cord from any fully-charged Kindle to one
that needs to be charged.
--> Keep the laptops plugged in when you're not using them as well!
3. Complete the activities in your "workbook" (vocabulary - please use Learner's Dictionary; sequence of events, character definitions and quality of life chart, plus one P.E.A.).
