First, Melissa. Hi. Thanks for trying the Applied Digital Skills. I researched your question, and I experienced the same issue after clicking to the end. The site says for work to be saved you must sign in. After signing in, work can be saved. I think the main point is learn from the videos, they are your guide through the process. I would keep work in a separate app like Word, Pages, or Google Docs. Please let me know if the sign-in works for you.
Secondly, Abigail. Hi. Thanks for the short story about your dogs. Maybe keep the journal short, with ideas you want to keep private, and create longer responses here in the comments. Just a thought. The Applied Digital Skills from Google can be found at the top of Gfuzzy's website. They are a series of short videos that walk you through the research for writing process. They should be helpful. Please let me know.
Next, Aliah. Hi. Mr. Sams says hello, and good-bye. He officially retired. I'm sad that he did not get a chance to say farewell to you and the other kids from that third grade class. Mr. Sams always said you were the best class he ever had and he deeply enjoyed your efforts, personalities, and spirit. He was also sad that we could not bring the La Quinta Arts Foundation to our site for instruction and practice because of the quarantine. I know you guys will be off campus next year, but I'll see if they will come on a Saturday and I'll save some spots for the few who produced art on a regular basis.
Finally, Alisa. Hi. Learning the piano? That is excellent! You know what you get when you combine notes with your writing skills? Songwriting! Playing the piano will bring a lifetime of enjoyment. Really proud of you for taking on a creative expression, an art form. Please stay with it.
Ok, I have to get back to Khan Academy. Please tell everyone I said hello and to be safe. If you chat with others from the class, please ask them to write in the journal or make comments here. 😁
