    Mar. 12 - 12 Logos Project

    On provided white paper (with 12 boxes for your drawings and companies listed under the boxes), create (with pencil) a logo for each of the following ficticious companies. First, though, read the name of the company and decide what that company is to you. For instance, Swiss Ski Chalet could be a ski resort, a restaurant, a ski equipment retail store, or more. Once you have decided that, draw a logo for each company in each square on the paper.

    Baby Genius Preschool
    Frank's Farm Tour
    Ace Aquarium
    Bubbles and Shine Car Wash
    Swiss Ski Chalet
    Fantastic Floral
    Getting Crafty
    Sudsy Puppy Canine Cleaners
    Stella's Seafood
    Gardens by Greta
    Off the Bench Sporting Goods
    Beautiful You Salon

    Remember: a logo is SIMPLE, not a scene. For instance, our district logo is the head and shoulders of a buck, not a buck and a doe and a fawn and the forest and a stream and sunshine and... You get the idea.

    If you finish early, it is, after all, Typing Tuesday! Lessons or tests only, in your personal account.

    Mar. 11 - Spreadsheet Test today! Makeups will be WEDNESDAY and we will review the test on Wednesday if no one in your class period is taking it. If there are test takers, we will review it on Thursday.

    Mar. 4 - Spreadsheets - Using Excel (industry standard software) and Google Sheets

    Formula Rules: (capital letters or lowercase do not matter)

    • EVERY FORMULA starts with =
    • NO SPACES in formulas
    • Enter only cell names and math symbols/words in formulas, never cell data
    • Automatic Recalculation - because we use cell names, not cell data, for formulas, when we make a change to data, all related cells will update (automatically recalulate) immediately, without any additional work on your part! 

    Ex.: =average(b7:g7) will find the average of all cell data (grades) in cells B7, C7, D7, E7, F7 and G7.

    =SUM (to find totals)


    =MAX (to find maximums)

    =MIN (to find minimums)

    Feb. 1 - The Mint (tips for teens)

    In a few years, you’ll get the opportunity to do all of things you’ve always dreamed about. You could go to college, sail the seas, launch your career, start a business or even start a family. No matter what you decide, you’ll need money smarts to make it happen.

    Are you ready for the real world? And do you have what it takes to make your dreams come true?

    This section will give you tips and tools for managing money. Get started!

    EARNING: You can't have million dollar dream with a minimum wage work ethic.  ~ Stephen C. Hogan

    Earning money at a job is a first step towards being on your own. Whether it’s an odd job for neighbors or part-time employment, you can use that money to reach your goals. If you’re looking for a job that gives you a real paycheck, think about this.

    Right now, you may be focused on just getting a job – one you like, that fits your school schedule, and that pays well. Good for now, but remember, too, that this job might help you down a career path. Before you take just “any” job, think about what you may want to do in the future. What kind of job will help you get there?

    Expand your thinking so that the jobs you take now help you build skills you’ll need later. First jobs will help you learn 1) what you like and dislike in a job and 2) the education and training you’ll need in that kind of career.

    Another thing about first jobs:  they make you learn more. Do you know how to Decode your paycheck?Do you have a bank account? Learn how banks work in the Saving section.

    Dec. 13 - North Pole Project Deadline for all buildings and exterior finishes: THURSDAY, DECEMBER 20

    Your task, using directions given below, is to create your representation of the North Pole - Santa's place, of course. This is NOT a group project and you will have no time to waste. Before you draw a line, SAVE as north_pole_lastname. Do NOT rotate buildings - keep it simple. This entire project is to be completed IN CLASS. If you are absent, MAKE UP THE TIME in homeroom or after school.

    MUST COMPLETE DRAWING (planning document in TOP VIEW) IN CLASS. 

    The following buildings are required of you. Your grade on this project will come from your plan/drawing on paper and correctly creating the buildings with the required dimensions given below. Where you place the buildings in relationship to each other is up to you.


    • VIEW is important. ALWAYS be on TOP VIEW when you are drawing foundations and on the appropriate view when drawing on buildings, furniture, etc.
    • Build foundations only in TOP VIEW. All lines that you draw (in TOP view!) need to be red or green before you type the measurement. [" for inches, ' for feet]
    • You canNOT download the buildings - you must create them yourself. Do NOT download ANYTHING until all of the required items from the directions below are complete.
    • Once you complete the required items, you may certainly embellish your North Pole with downloaded components, but bear in mind - the more you download, the longer it will take to save and freezing issues are more likely to occur.


    Required items - tip: complete ALL buildings first, then create doors and windows on the buildings. Do not create a yard:

    1. Santa's House:

    • 25' by 35' foundation
    • 10' walls
    • 8' peaked roof
    • Two standard sized doors (3' by 7') and windows wherever you like.

    2. Reindeer Stable:

    • 20' by 40' foundation
    • 12' walls
    • 9' peaked roof
    • Two 6' by 7' barn door (one rectangle) and two standard sized doors.

    3. Toy Workshop:

    • 30' by 70' foundation
    • 20' walls
    • 10' peaked roof
    • Two Standard sized doors (single or double - must have two entrance/exit points) and windows.

    4. Sleigh Barn:

    • 15' by 25' foundation
    • 10' walls
    • 5' peaked roof
    • 6' by 7' barn door, one standard sized door and windows wherever you like.

    5. Elf Cottages - minimum of FIVE (tip - I highly recommend that you create one, then, from TOP VIEW, select, copy, paste and move or rotate as needed):

    • 10' by 10' foundation
    • 6' walls
    • 3' peaked roof
    • Two 1.5' (18") x 4' door(s) and windows wherever you like.

    6. Elf Dormatory, Cafeteria and Rec Center (all one building):

    • 25' by 70' foundation
    • 14' walls
    • 9' peaked roof
    • Two 1.5' x 4' door(s) and windows wherever you like.
    • One standard sized door (so Santa can attend parties)

    Remember: when in doubt, CHECK YOUR MEASUREMENTS with the Tape Measure tool.

    Windows on all four sides of house today. Here is the file, House, all measurements, for perpetually absent people. We cannot re-do an entire class of 3D design in nine minutes of homeroom.



    Eight people were absent yesterday. You will need to start with Step 1. Everyone else, open your house project and start at Front View Measurements and Lines below.

    Step 1: The Foundation

    Top View > Measure up from red axis 20' > Measure to right from green axis 10'


    See the intersection of the two measurement lines? You just created the corner of your house.

    Step 2: 

    Select the Line Tool. From the intersection that you just created with those two measurement lines:

    35' line to the right, parallel to the red axis.

    25' line up, parallel to the green axis.

    Complete the rectangle (35' to the left, 25' down) to create the foundation of the house.

    Step 3:

    Raise foundation (Push/Pull) to 19'.

    Step 4:

    Raise roof peak (Move) to 9'.

    Step 5 - All Measurement Lines on House:

    Front View Measurements and Lines:

    House - Front View - Measurement Lines

    Back View Measurements and Lines:

    House Back View and Measurements

    Right View and Left View (put SAME measurements on both sides):

    Right and Left Views

    If you finish your measurement lines on all four sides, go to, personal account. Timed Typing Test on Wednesday, Dec. 12.

    In some classes, started the House Project in SketchUp.

    Top View > Measure up from red axis 20' > Measure to right from green axis 10'

    You just created the corner of your house.

    From the intersection that you just created with those two measurement lines, draw a 35' line parallel to the red axis, and 25' parallel to the green axis. Complete the rectangle to create the foundation of the house.

    Raise foundation (Push/Pull) to 19'.

    Raise roof peak (Move)to 9'.

    Dec 4: 

    In class today you were to DRAW, LABEL and DEFINE all of the 23 SketchUp tools that you are responsible for knowing. Here is a screen shot, but for hovering over the tools for labels and definitions, you must install the program. Get answers from a friend or come in homeroom to do this if you were absent!

    Download SketchUp at Home and pick, "Just for fun!" to install. 

    Shed Project: Complete - feel free to download at home and use the file. Classes are either finished, or almost finished, with this project. 

    Hour of Code begins today! Check out many cool projects here! There are so many people on right now, they cannot save individual files, so do not bother logging in, just use do the activities! Enjoy!

    Nov 27: Presentations are wrapping up! 3D Design is beginning in each class. Google Drive > Waffle > (More)> SketchUp

    Grady needs a wonderful, loving home.

    Nov 13: PRESENTATIONS BEGIN TOMORROW, Nov. 14! You cannot touch your presentation after class time on Wednesday, November 14, only practice speaker notes, so all must be FINISHED today!

    Three goals today: Speaker Notes, Timing (5-10 min.), and only then, (personal account) or reading a book!

    Give your audience what is on the slide and MORE. DO NOT READ SLIDES TO US. Have great speaker notes on paper in front of you and USE them. :) There will be NO PRINTING of speaker notes today. We will print first thing tomorrow and start presenting. 

    If you know that your presentation slides (all contentimages and citations on content slides and on Works Cited slides) and speaker notes are done, timing is great (5-10 min – use the clock and PRACTICE silently at your seat) and you are ready to present, then you may go to your PERSONAL account (it is Typing Tuesday, after all!) or read a book that you have brought to class with you.

    Thank you and kindly behave as if I am here, (I'm right downstairs). 

    Nov 12: GET IT FINISHED day!

    Today is the day to complete the presentation. Tomorrow will be all about speaker note creation, but today is for getting every slide finished, from titles, to Arial size 18 bullets, to excellent images  properly places and CITATIONS FOR EVERYTHING!

    • If you are going to type your speaker notes, create a Drive doc TODAY called PA PRIDE SPEAKER NOTES, and get busy.
    • If you are going to write your speaker notes, you may use the sheets on the podium or your own paper, and get busy.

    Past deadlines: Nov. 7 for Works Cited slides (5 days ago), Nov. 8 Fact/Paraphrase (bullets) citations (4 days ago), Nov. 9 Parenthetical citations for images on slides (3 days ago).

    Nov 9: Creation of images citations (parenthetical citations) on slides - see slide 8 of the Bennett College example. Be sure that only the text within the parentheses is directly linked to the location of that image online. If it is YOUR image (you or your family member/friend took the picture) you will not have a link, just the last name of the photographer. Slide 11 shows the Works Cited.

    Remember: the Fig number is to show each image's order within the presentation. The photo you have on your Objectives slide will be Fig. 1.

    Next comes the title of the image (no period!), capitalizing as required.

    Last, the text within the parentheses should be the text of the photographer's last name, or the owner of the image, capitalizing as required. The text should link to the URL that takes you directly to that image online. Slide 11 shows the Works Cited.

    Nov 8: Creation of fact/paraphrase citations on slides - see slide 5 of the Bennett College example. The text within the parentheses should be the text before the first period of the full citation for that fact. The link should be the URL that takes you directly to that fact online. Slide 11 shows the Works Cited.

    Type citation text.

    Go copy (Ctrl + C) the URL for that page from your CITATIONS AND CONTENT doc.

    Back on the slide, select the text within the parentheses.

    Right click on the blue selected area.

    Click "Link" and paste URL (Ctrl + V) 

    Click "Apply."

    Nov 7: Creation of Presentation file and Completion of Works Cited slide

    In Google Drive, double click your PA PRIDE INFO folder. New > Slides. Name it PA PRIDE PRES and SHARE IT with Mrs. Telnock

    Nov 1 & 2: Pennsylvania Pride Presentation  Step 1 Only these two days, but here's a heads-up:

    • Step One: RESEARCH Pennsylvania sights and landmarks that you have seen and love, or, would like to see, gathering images (save to Downloads folder, then immediately upload to PA PRIDE INFO folder on Drive) and content, and completing citations with me, later.
    • Step Two: Take into account that your presentation MUST BE five to ten minutes long. No limit/required number of places, or slides - time is your only limit.
    • Step Three: Slide show time: practice and timing, practice and timing. Oh, and practice and timing.

    STEP 1:

    Links for your research are below. ALL RESEARCH must be completed before you begin creating your slides. That means that you have all of your CITATIONS, CONTENT and IMAGES (uploaded to the folder, not copied and pasted) in the PA PRIDE INFO folder that you are about to create.

    Create a Google Drive FOLDER called, PA PRIDE INFO. To do this, New > Folder and name it.

    • Double click the PA PRIDE INFO folder that you just made. Go to New>Google Docs and call it CITATIONS AND CONTENT.
    • Save all notes and create all citations in this document! Do NOT paste images onto this document.

    Sept. 21: Multiple Intelligences Test

    Make a huge difference in the lives of dogs and cats in need of loving care: A few students have asked me about volunteering at Griffin Pond Animal Shelter, which is an excellent, character-building activity. Students under 18 must be accompanied by an adult to volunteer. There is a form to fill out and take to the shelter, about a 15 minute drive from Dunmore. Volunteer dog walkers must be 18 years of age. People under 18 cannot accompany dog walkers, either, so you have a few years before you can do that, but I highly recommend it!

    Sept. 19: Multiple Intelligences Vocabulary

    "documents the extent to which students possess different kinds of minds and therefore learn, remember, perform, and understand in different ways."

    Gardner claims that all human beings have multiple intelligences. These multiple intelligences can be nurtured and strengthened or ignored and weakened. His research from 1991 identified seven intelligences; in the intervening time, he has come to believe there are a total of nine intelligences:

    • Verbal-Linguistic Intelligence: Well-developed verbal skills and sensitivity to the sounds, meanings and rhythms of words.
    • Mathematical-Logical Intelligence: The ability to think conceptually and abstractly, and the capacity to discern logical or numerical patterns.
    • Musical Intelligence: The ability to produce and appreciate rhythm, pitch and timbre.
    • Visual-Spatial Intelligence: The capacity to think in images and pictures, to visualize accurately and abstractly.
    • Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence: The ability to control one's body movements and to handle objects skillfully.
    • Interpersonal Intelligence: The capacity to detect and respond appropriately to the moods, motivations and desires of others.
    • Intrapersonal Intelligence: The capacity to be self-aware and in tune with inner feelings, values, beliefs and thinking processes.
    • Naturalist Intelligence: The ability to recognize and categorize plants, animals and other objects in nature.
    • Existential Intelligence: The sensitivity and capacity to tackle deep questions about human existence, such as the meaning of life, why we die and how we got here.


    Verbal Linguistic: story telling, journaling, pre-reading word and letter recognition

    Musical Rhythmic: singing, humming, chanting, playing with instruments, role-play to enact stories and patterns

    Logical Mathematical: puzzles, manipulative, pattern games, number sequences

    Visual Spatial: painting, drawing, multimedia, visual rich activities

    Bodily Kinesthetic: dance, aerobic exercise, drama, role playing, sculpturing

    Naturalist: outdoor nature collecting, mapping, comparison of natural elements

    Intrapersonal: self paced independent work and exploration, reflection

    Interpersonal: cooperative/partner activities, sharing, explaining, demonstrating

    Sept. 18: Internet Safety Unit Test

    Shared this link:

    Sept. 17: Review for Internet Safety Unit Test - Content from all notes and classroom discussions from Sept. 4 through now. Internet Safety Vocabulary, Top Ten Online Manners, Amber Alerts, Megan's Law, NetSmartz movies.

    Approximately 4,400 teens commit suicide each year and a large percentage of those kids had cyberbullying issues in their lives. Suicide is the second leading cause of death of the teen demographic.

    If about half (50%) of all teens have been or are victims of cyber bullying, that means that students in the other 50% are either bullies or bystanders.

    All child molesters, bullies and other abusers (or people or animals) have one trait in common: apathy. They do not care about the pain of others.

    Sept. 7: Sexual Solicitation, Megan's Law, Amber Alert

    Let's start here today: 

    Megan's Law: Megan Kanka

    Jesse Timmendequas was charged with the July 1994 murder of seven-year-old Megan Kanka in New Jersey. Kanka’s death inspired Megan’s Law, a statute enacted in 1994 requiring that information about convicted sex felons be available to the public. Versions of Megan’s Law have been passed in many states since her murder.

    Megan had last been seen riding her bike outside her home in West Windsor Township, New Jersey, on July 29. Her parents found her bike on the front lawn and immediately began to search for her. The following day, her body was discovered in Mercer County Park. Jesse Timmendequas, who lived across the street from Kanka and had two prior convictions for sexual assault, was arrested.

    In the aftermath of this horrible crime, Megan’s parents lobbied state legislators for a new law, arguing that if they had known about Timmendequas’ background they would have been able to protect their daughter. New Jersey and several other states passed laws following the public outcry. 

    Details here.

    Active Amber Alerts

    To be sure that you receive Amber Alerts on your cell.

    Amber Alert History: Amber Hagerman

    The AMBER Alert System began in 1996 when Dallas-Fort Worth broadcasters teamed with local police to develop an early warning system to help find abducted children. AMBER stands for America's Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response and was created as a legacy to 9-year-old Amber Hagerman, who was kidnapped while riding her bicycle in Arlington, Texas, and then brutally murdered. Other states and communities soon set up their own AMBER plans as the idea was adopted across the nation.

    Aug. 30: Ideal Learning Environment

    This assignment will be your first grade of the quarter. This will be your first guided experience in public speaking of this school year. You are to choose a topic that you would love to learn about (does not have to be school subject related!) and describe to your audience what your ideal learning environment for that particular topic would be. Your finished speech should be not longer than one sheet of paper. A hand-drawn image will accompany your speech as a visual aid. Draw yourself in your ideal learning environment. Be professional, as we discussed. Do not be too casual with your audience. You will not be graded on your drawing skills, just your speech and the fact that you have completed your visual aid drawing, being sure to cover the Lucky 7.

    Good writing requires including as many of the five senses as possible, so incorporate the all of senses (sight, smell, sound, taste, touch) as you tell us about your ideal learning environment. Bring your audience into the environment with as many details as possible.
