Friday Five: Influencing, Spelling, Coding, Zipping, Creating

Number Five

What did you learn this week?

I love to learn new things, and think a day’s wasted if something new doesn’t make its way into my already-bustling brain.  A few random things learned this week:


  1. German, Irish, Spanish, Indian, and Chinese influences are significant in Jamaica. *Thank you, Ms. Sheldon W., for sharing interesting insights about your culture.  Fascinating!
  2. The word misogynist has a ‘y’ in it.  Wanted to use this word … wasn’t sure how to spell it.
  3. Notepad in Windows is a text editing tool that can be used to build webpages.  Really?
  4. You can zipline in Sonoma County, California.  Had no idea!
  5. SCAD (Savannah College of Art & Design) offers a super-cool summer Educator Conference – should be a must on every educator’s To Do list.  Nurture your creativity!   Thanks, SCAD, for sending your summer offerings to our school.  Since I can’t make it this summer, I’m paying it forward by sharing the 411. 🙂
