Sorry to all who commented on my posts. All were very important and thoughtful. I was trying to figure out a way to use blogs and also regulate what comments could be posted. As you can see, I was playing with the monitoring items on this blog site. (Thinking ahead to when I try it in the classroom!) SO, I just figured out how to accept your comments just now. In the future I will be more prompt in accepting your comments.
Thanks for giving me the learning curve!
