Blogging Party #3!

We enjoyed our third blogging party this week as a result of our hard work all year.  Most students reached the 100 visitor mark on their student blogs.  Congratulations to Anthony Einhorn who received a shout out from the Student Blogging Challenge for having a Great Blogging Post.  You can read his post by clicking on the preceding link. 

In celebration of everyone’s accomplishments, we watched Night at the Museum with our own concession stand.  Afterwards, Mrs. Chonody, whom we met when she began commenting regularly on our blog, spoke to us about her travels around the world.  Her visit was so wonderful as it perfectly exemplified the goal of blogging to “flatten classroom walls”.  We learned of her adventures in Pakistan, India, Africa, and most recently the Vatican.  She shared many artifacts with us and also some delicious food!

THANK YOU, MRS. CHONODY!

Question for our class: What do you remember from Mrs. Chonody’s presentation?

Question for our blogging buddies and for our class: What country have you visited or would you like to visit?  What makes that country interesting to visit?

         Hey Kids!   The year is almost over. On Wednesday we’ll celebrate with our third blogging party to mark 100 visitors on all the students’ blogs.  We’ll finally connect with our #1 Blogging Buddy, Mrs. Chonody, who will regale us with tales of her travels.  Another highlight of the year was making contact with Dana Hankins, the producer of the Under the Blood-Red Sun movie, and then with author, Graham Salisbury.  I also appreciate all the posts, comments, and Skypes we shared with Ms. Smith and her Huzzahnians, almost half-way across the world in British Columbia, Canada.   Look through some of our older posts, pictures, and videos. What was the highlight of language arts for you this year?
