I also want to add my thanks for the many helpful ideas and resources
that I have received from this group. I feel less isolated and when I check
in, always read about others who are doing what I'm doing. I wish all of
you health and happiness in the coming year.

The funnies are great! Let me add on...

*A few years ago the fifth graders were working on coil handbuilding.
It is our practice at the end of class to wrap the pottery in moist, not
sopping (something I make a big point of...), towels and put them in a
plastic bag. This particular day, I lost track of time and exclaimed, "Oh!
It's time to clean up. Go to your sinks and get your damp paper towels!"
The room became very quiet. I said to the student next to me, "What did
I say?" He diplomatically replied, "They didn't hear the 'p' in damp.

*I love the paper one of our teachers got on Abraham Lincoln. One line
read, "Lincoln was elected after he exposed himself."
