Make Your Own Avatar

This week we are using to create Avatars and share our experiences during Christmas Break.

My avatar will tell you how to get started. It is in the sidebar. When you finish with your avatar, you will be able to create a link. Copy that link into a comment on this blog post. That way all of us can see your avatar!

Also, notice that there are Voki Directions in the sidebar as well.  Have fun!

The Reader as Detective

This week you are to respond to one of the following questions in your comment. Read the question carefully. Then respond in complete sentences with correct punctuation and capitalization.

If you read "The Purloined Letter," do you have any ideas about where the letter was hidden? Could the police have missed it, or might it be hidden somewhere else entirely?  Give evidence from the story section to support your answer.

If you read "The Red-Headed League," tell us what you found strange or unusual in Mr. Wilson's story.  Give evidence from the story section to support your answer.
