While I sat in traffic today, the Calvinball crew was busy altering the rules once again -- this time in my favor. In the midst of grading papers yesterday at home, I peeked in on the JBS Mercantile Forum Calvinball thread and saw that it was on fire, with everyone mentioning how much their totals had increased. So I had to ask:
Do graded papers count as layouts? I could put some stickers on them. :) In fact, I hand-journaled on many of them.This morning, Doris replied:
i've updated "the rules" this morning, adding an educator's clause similar to the educator's tax credit in which educators can claim a $250 deduction for classroom expenses. in this case, educators can add a bonus point if they have to add "journaling" to student essays while calvinball is in progress. this rule was submitted by jill and i am concurring with its validity as i will be pursuing this endeavor tomorrow.Maybe that was my first pity point, but I'll take it!
Tonight I also finished a page, so that brings my totals to...
Calvinball points: 4
Calvinblog points: 6
Bonus points: 4
Ere I go, I have a new page to share. It was actually finished in February, so it's not Calvinball-qualified, but I love it all the same:
This layout is from this week's Garden at Two Peas in a Bucket. I decided to stop hoarding these wooden Basic Grey buttons and finally put them to use.
More details and a supply list can be found in the original gallery post.
I'm off to "journal" on more student papers. See you later!
