Check white board for your missing scores.  Some resumes are locked so I can't see them. Some others are not posted correctly You should have a link from a link list, not a blog post. The idea is that if someone wants to view your resume, it will always be at the top and easy to find. Click on this student blog who did it as per instructed.

Adding a link list to your blog
You Should have the following assignments done and on your blog. 

The Wiggle assignment was fun for some but if it just didn't happen for technology reasons, don't worry about it.  I will not grade it.

1 Resume
2 Planner Cover
3 Old townhouse menu
4 Layer mask
