Poor Zach

Mr. Zach has not been having a very good week. They did the writing PASS test Tuesday - and he dislikes writing even more than History - and seriously, that's a lot!

He had a mini science project due, on matter, that we had to make a treat as the end result. We chose mini brownies (our first attempt!) and they actually came out very good. I even managed to get all the egg shells out that found their way into the batter (he's not a very good egg breaker!)!

The assignment (which counts for two grades) could be done on power point, and I figured he may as well learn how to put a basic slide show together. So, we sat down, I walked him through the first couple slides and turned him loose. I'm no expert, so I was so glad I took that basic computer class last semester!

Then we burned the show to a dvd and sent it in with the brownies today. I checked the disc three times, the presentation was there. He tells me after school the disc was blank! WHAT? I can only guess it has something to do with Mac and Windows compatibility, but if it was done in Powerpoint, it should still work. Egads! Poor guy.

So tonight I printed it out and I'm sending it to school tomorrow with him. Hopefully his teacher will accept it. It took him forever - so I'm going to try and share it here.



I hope it works, I had to transfer it to a movie format and post it on You Tube. hmm

Anyway, I didn't want him to do all that work for nothing!



Until next time ~ Kris

I love your comments and I read them all. I'm not very good at replying to them though. It's one of my many downfalls. I hope you'll leave some anyway!
