Mrs Benjamin's Blog

Come visit with our Fifth Grade Class!

We are done with Week 2!


and it feels as if we’ve been together for a few months now!  Everything is going so smoothly!  I credit the hard work and fantastic behavior of every single student in our room.  Let’s keep it up!

Today we really started discussing the concept of a class blog.  We have gotten comments from a number of other bloggers from around the world!  If you stopped by to read this page, whether you are a member of Room 28, a parent or relative, another student in our school, or from somewhere else around the world, PLEASE take a moment to leave a comment.  Just scroll to the bottom of the entry and go!

A goal I have set for the class for next week is to explore some other class blogs that are participating in the Student Blogging Challenge and asking each student to leave one positive comment linked back to our class blog.

At this time, we don’t have our individual blogs up and running yet.  We need to be a bit more comfortable with exactly WHAT a blog is and how we can make the most of it.  Be patient!

Have a great weekend and thank you for visiting!

    G’day Mrs Benjamin,
    You and I are thinking on the same track. I have just set week 2 challenges and it includes leaving comments on other blogs. I hope you and your students enjoy the activities and complete as many as you wish.

    Hi Mrs Benjamin, starting your students on a class blog is a great way to introduce them to blogging. Can you ask them to let me know any cool stuff they see on the different class blogs as I like to share ideas and tips with others?

    Good luck in the Student blogging Challenge – from Perth, Western Australia.

    Greetings from Mr. Barrett’s 5th grade class. We got your comment on our blog page and thought we would leave one for you.

    Anyway, the first two weeks of school is always crazy. Students are getting to know each other and everything is new to a lot of people.

    We are currently finishing up our fifth week. We just took our first science and math test and are looking forward to finishing our first set of guided reading books.

    What are some books that you read? Any recomendations?

    Hopefully, everything will go smoothly for you the rest of this school year.

    Commenting is such an important part of blogging. Have you visited Mr Toft’s blog? He has some excellent ideas about using maps and clocks when keeping a record of who has visited his blog.
