Catching up on visits

We finally had some time today to check out our friend’s blogs around the world and look at our own student blogs with eyes on improving them over the coming holidays. Some of our favorite posts were by Mr. Lane’s class who had fun creating some mini-monsters for Halloween. We also read about how Msrs. Yollis and class promote Family Blogging Month. Finally, we enjoyed learning about exponents from Mr. Avery’s class. Their movies are fantastic!

I’m very proud of my students and their progress this year. We are using their blogs for both personal writing, the Edublog Challenge, and for writing assignments. Even though they are new to blogging, most have 15 or more posts already. You can visit them by checking out the Treasure Seeker Links to the right.  Some terrific posts have been recently added by Edith(Favorite website), Paloma(Bullying), Cassidy (World Wildlife Federation), Clay (Fun websites), Isaiah (Global warming),  Letty (Pyramids), and Christian (Illegal whaling).

  1. Congratulations to your students and they already have 15 post when their new to blogging! What I liked about this post is that when you are listing your student’s blogs you list like exact post.

  2. Dear Mr. Miller,
    Greetings from the Bulldog Readers! We are another one of the blogs in the Stories Around the World group blog. We are looking forward to getting to know you in California.
    Here in Seattle, WA we love to read all kinds of genres. We currently have a post about genres and the usual way our library is set up. Perhaps you could leave us a comment and let us know what you are currently reading.
    Some of us are looking forward to meeting Christopher Paolini, author of Inheritance when he comes to our area on his book tour.
    Happy Reading!
    Mrs. Hembree

    Thanks for stopping by! We’re so glad that you were able to visit our class blog and enjoyed our video! I think you’re all doing an amazing job with your blogs. I’ll have to have some of my students swing in and leave some comments!

    I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

    Sincerely,
    Mr. Avery
