Thanks Judy, I needed that really is so simple! I think I will
order the book now! I plan to paste this info in my notebook that I plan to
use as a guide for the first day of school. I will discuss this with my
students and may even make a list to post to my bulletin board so that the
students realize the importance of simplicity. Thanks again.
