HUZZAH!!! (Wild applause! Cheering! Loud clapping! Standing ovation!) That’s what we here at Hey, Kids! hope to hear from those there at Edublogs when they announce the Best Class Blog for 2012.
As you can see from their post on Nov. 12th, the class motto at Huzzah! is “Do Good”. As far as we’re concerned, they live that motto every day. Huzzah has “done good” even when they didn’t know they were doing good. Their blog has served as a model for our class as we navigate the new frontier of blogging. Every time we return to visit, we learn something new that helps us on our journey to read, write, think, and share. We love their:
- videos about trips to the forest
- very humorous job applications for positions as 7th graders
- travels with class pet unicorns, Epona and Stephano
- Shelfari recommendations
- cool commenting slide shows
- class motto! “Do Good!”
Not only do we learn through their example of what makes a good post and a good blog, but their teacher, Ms. Smith, has taken the time to encourage our many students through her kind responses to their comments. She has also sent an email to our teacher with step-by-step instructions for setting up email addresses for each of her students and for using Flickr Creative Commons. Huzzah! writes new posts frequently so that there is always something new for us to see when we visit.
In addition, the Huzzahnians write excellents posts and comments on our pages. They are courteous and thoughtful. They continue the dialogue with a question, and use their best writing skills. We are honored to be one of their blogging buddies, and we hope to hear good news from Edublogs soon that rewards them for consistently “doing good”.
Visit them and see why they are so good and deserving of the Eddy for Best Class Blog. http://huzzah.edublogs.org/
