Book #19–The Dictionary of Difficult Words

Yesterday, I finished a week-long training in Arlington, VA. and two of my participants approached me at the end of the day to chat with me, and to give me a gift.

They gave me a book called, ‘The Dictionary of Difficult Words,’ because they thought I would love it—they were right! Even more lovely was the hand-written thank you card that accompanied it. Their words really touched me—it’s nice being thanked and appreciated!

Marsha & Maria–thank you so much for thinking of me!

I read the book cover-to-cover this morning and I really enjoyed it! As promised, it’s filled with lots & lots of difficult words. I can tell this will be a book that I revisit many times!

    Hi Candee!

    I attended the IMSE conference in Arlington in July and I have a question – not about OG but about your IPAD and how you used it as a document scanner. Was this just the camera you used to project onto the screen? Thanks for your help. Hope you are enjoying your travels!

    Best regards,

      Hi there~
      I used the camera function on my ipad to project what I was writing, or to model finger tapping or syllable division (for example). I switched back and forth between ‘camera mode’ and keynote (which is the program I used to show my slides). I hope this helps!
