  • Michael Archangel Same swamp but now restocked with new predators!

    @JJ - You pointed out no inconsistency. You have not provided any substantiation for your accusation of any sort. You made a claim, you then followed it up with a taunt and still have not backed up your words.

    It is my hope the moderators bounce you permanently for this. You cannot make unsubstantiated claims about people. It is wrong and it is libelous.

  • Jarvis John Trump WINS.. Again!!

    Heat too hot in the kitchen, MA? Talk about hyperbole. I was just accused of libeling an anonymous user on a neighborhood blog.

    Newsflash MA, there is a mute button. If you don't like my comments, feel free to use it.

    My students need materials that will enhance the practical life and language areas of the classroom. Children need items (audio books, word boards, coffee grinder) that will strengthen their fine motor skills as well as literacy activities that will help them read.
