We will be using our blog to share what we are learning in class, to comment on posts, and to express ourselves. We would love to connect with classrooms around the world to share ideas and learning.


  1. G'day Mrs Essenburg and students,
    What a great official Voki you have! I also like this page telling me where you are in Michigan. When I visited the USA I stayed on the east coast of Michigan to go to Ohio and meet some friends there in Cleveland.

    Make sure you check out some of the other classes taking part in the blogging challenge. You should make some great connections there.

  2. Dear Tasteach,

    Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. I'm glad you liked our information about Michigan. We will definitely be visiting other classes to learn about them.

  3. Hi Grade 3,
    I have really enjoyed reading your blog. I teach in Sydney and the Year 3 students at my school are looking forward to connecting with you in the Global Read Aloud which starts next week. My Year 6 class have been helping them learn to use edmodo so that they can talk to you. It's holidays here at the moment so they have been a little quiet!
    Kind regards
    Mrs Thomas

  5. G’day Mrs Essen and students,
    Welcome to the March 2015 student blogging challenge. I hope you enjoy the activities to choose from each week. Make sure you connect with other classes around the world. These can be found in the header area of the blog.

    Maybe your teacher could add a link to the challenge in the sidebar of your class blog. You could do this using the new 2015 challenge badge – see the post explaining how to add the badge to your blog.

  6. Dear Mrs. Essenburg and Class,
    Thank you for telling us about yourselves on your About Me page. We look forward to learning more about you and your state during the blogging challenge.
    From, Mrs. Amri and The Crew
