Great idea!

I never thought about a quiz on their new teacher. I just finished writing one for my 4th graders coming in this year. Some of them are easy but some will require a little investigation to find...

I cut them by hand last year...

which isn't as daunting a task as it sounds. I got composition notebooks on the cheap, like 60 cents each I think then i used my sharpest heavy duty shears. I counted how many writing lines there...

Thanks...

I guess I think of D5 and Cafe as being one system since I use them both. Last year I had found a site that listed a suggested order for teaching lessons for Cafe. I was looking for something...
