A Wednesday Post In a Jiffy

Filed under: Announcements,Homework — mrweis @ 6:10 pm

I’m running from conferences to the PTA meeting, and I only have a few minutes to make a post, so this is going to be quick.

Tomorrow we will be walking over to Zellerbach Hal on the Cal campus to go see a performance of Love’s Labour’s Lost. In class today, we used our computer time to learn a bit about how to make better internet searches using google. The students were able to locate the Cal Performances website and then navigate to a PDF study guide. They then downloaded the study guide and used information from it to fill out a graphic organizer on the play. Here is a link to the study guide if you would like to know a little more about the performance.

Love's Labour's Lost

Today we sent home fliers about the BAM Cafe. Please respond promptly and make sure your calendars are marked for the event. It will be held on Thursday, November 12 from 4:30 to 6:30 upstairs.

Now that I am about to run, I wonder if I really did type this in a jiffy? What exactly is a jiffy anyway? I was able to find the answer through a google book search. (Did you know that there are many books completely scanned in and archived in google?) Follow this link to take a look at an excerpt from the book What in the word? and learn where the word came from.


  1. Math: Explain how to find a missing angle in a triangle to someone.
  2. Vocab: Finish Packet
  3. Reading: Read for 25 minutes and fill out the clarification section in your reading log.
