Challenge09 #1 – Introduce Yourself

locationThe first of the Blog Challenge09 has been issued and we are ready to rise to the occasion. The task is to introduce ourselves. Here in this post, I would like to link you to some interesting facts and trivia about our great state of Texas located here in the United States of America. I had to include that we were here in the USA because we have been fortunate enough to receive visitors from all over the world!

Our class is a class of 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders.  We are the first intermediate class to blog at our campus, and we hope to encourage others to follow very soon.  A few teachers have started a personal blog, but we hope to show by example that getting the students involved in blogging is a invaluable educational tool.  Where my students once hated to write, they are now going to our Blog roll and posting comments in their spare time – FOR FUN!

Student blogging has been and continues to be a productive weekly activity.

This week our students will be adding their personal introductions to the Meet Our Class page. We hope that you will take the time to read all about them and leave them your comments.

  1. What a great introduction. I have never been to Texas. If I came for a visit, where would you recommend I go to see some history and some natural beauty in your state?

  2. Congratulations on such a great blog site and first-up post in the 2009 challenge.
    Our class are about to do our post too and the students have commented on how effective your map is. They also think your dog is pretty cool.

  3. Hi there,
    great introduction some very interesting facts too I wonder if we can also create such an interesting intro.
    thanks for your comment on our blog and may I say what a super blog you are….nice to connect to you!

  4. Hello from in Ottawa Canada. Thank you for leaving a comment on Maggie and Taylor’s video. We were looking at your comment as a class this morning. How many students do you have in your class? We love your post of the pet blog and your penguin video. We will put a link to you on our site.

  5. We used this page as a ‘how to model’ for our blog for the Edublogger Challenge #1. We’ve brainstormed about Texas and our students don’t know anything of significance so we’re going to have a mini posting challenge here tomorrow to find out some information. If you’d be able to answer those questions that would be wonderful.

  6. Hello. My name is Arahia and I live in New Zealand, I am a student of Melville Intermediate School. I enjoy riding horses. My favourite food is sushi. New Zealand is a small country famous for producing dairy products. Hamilton is the fourth largest city in New Zealand. It has 100,000 people in it. We have four million people in New Zealand. Our city has five bridges that cross the Waikato river that runs through our city. My class has started a blog and we’ve had 800 visitors in the past month. We find other people sites that we like and leave comments. New Zealand is by Australia if you can’t find it on the map. We are maybe a small country but it is beautiful when you come to visit.

    • Arahia, I actually have your blog linked to our blogroll. I really like your page and all of the posts you have there. I see that your favorite food is sushi. I have never eaten sushi, but I know a lot of people who LOVE it. Maybe I just don’t know what to try. What would you suggest as a beginning sushi taste?
