Even to those who don't celebrate, this gift is for you! Enjoy!
*Make good choices!
* Have a happy new year!

Oh, Okonkwo! What will happen next? You never listen to your emotions. Maybe you should occasionally.
**Don't forget to bring in your preparatory items for Wednesday's celebration!!
See you tomorrow!
Can you believe THAT HAPPENED?! I was shocked, myself!
For Sunday night's blog comment, please leave the following information:
1. What "scene" in this chapter did you find the most interesting? Why?

Have a great weekend!
It's called Uli. Check it out! Maybe we can imitate this in our party, fully clothed, of course!
Your homework assignment, as follows, is due Friday at midnight. Your job is to peruse the websites below and use an excellent brush stroke sentence to comment on the links. You may have more than one sentence as a comment, but only one is required.
Have fun! (And try to think of solid plans for a Nigerian Christmas Festival in class. You need to choose activities, food, decorations, etc. If you do not, there will be no party!)
What is that word? (pros-uh-POG-ruh-fee)

We read books of our own choosing that have nothing to do with a grade, except that students earned a 100 as a homework assignment by bringing them to class. It was amazing! If you weren't in class, you missed it, but it did not count against you.
I have an idea! What if we have a Nigerian Christmas party? We would have to do some research to determine how they celebrate the holiday.
