We in 5/6C love to blog. This year we've had many amazing opportunities to connect with other students all around the world, through our blog, Edmodo and Skype. We'd like to acknowledge all of the schools and students we've connected with this year and nominate some of the exceptional work happening in our schools (We wish we could nominate more than one for each category!)
I am passion about educational blogging. In my 27 years of teaching, I have never seen anything have such a positive impact on learning as educational blogging. Not only does blogging improve reading and writing skills, it is also a great place to help children build a positive digital footprint and learn how to contribute to an online community.

Once upon a time Brad, Matthew and Steven were home alone. It was a cold and windy Friday night. Suddenly, there was a knock on the door. Brad opened the door very slowly, but when it was fully open it was a slimy man eating tiger.

It's not too long until Christmas! Today the children made special advent calendars. Beginning tonight, the students will take one link off of their chain every night until Christmas Eve.

This is indeed a challenge sometimes, as it can be difficult to frame our ideas into such a small amount of words.
