Final Exam Begins…. Slowly – 4/18

Today you will begin the process of your Final Exam. What I figure is by next Wednesday all Final Exams should be done and completed. Any days missed in class by you must be made up either before or after school only… AND with prior consult of Mr. Smallwood.

We’ll start today with some overview of card designs. Then we’ll get to a refreshing of the Character panel once more (I know you know it, but just for ole time sakes). Lastly if time permits we’ll discuss overlays.
