Welcome back, cute kids! You only have 6 weeks left, and you can make it!

Dear Mythology Kids,
STOP MISSING CLASS! If you missed today, we completed the following:

1. I explained your new "poetry" assignment. Please visit with me to obtain the information regarding this assignment, and then I will refer you to one of your classmates for a detailed explanation.
2. We then reviewed the myths "War between the Aesir and Vanir," "Building Asgard's Wall," and "Loki's Children and the binding of Fenrir."
3. I returned each student's notations regarding the above myths. You submitted the notations the Friday prior to spring break. We then reviewed the questions you had asked and had a group discussion using your questions as a catalyst.  YOU ASKED SOME VALID AND LOGICAL QUESTIONS!
