For challenge #10 we decided to write about our blog by evaluating our classroom blog so far. http://studentchallenge.
So far this year we have created 13 posts on our classroom blog. We changed our theme one time to make it different and so it would fit the personality of the classroom. We really like the themes, but would like to have more to choose from. It seems like there could be better use of space on the page of our blog. There would be more room for widgets and other links. We only have four widgets on our blog right now. We do not want to crowd the page. Anyways, we are working on some other projects that will eventually be posted to our blog. Most of our posts are due to the Edublogs student challenge. We have six posts that are projects our classroom did and we wanted to add to our blog. Eight of our posts came from the student challenge, and one other post was in the beginning when we were just learning to blog. We have recieved 108 comments so far this year from people around the world. Our teacher challenged us to have our friends and family post comments and it worked! Several family members from different states have posted comments! Unfortunately we do not have any students or classrooms from other countries on our blogroll yet. Could you help us out? If you are from a country other than the United States, could you post a comment on our blog? That way we can track you back and maybe add you to our blogroll!
We have some popular posts too. Two posts get the most comments, Passionate Prickly Pear Jelly and Pueblo Villages of the Southwest. Will and Kimberly did some research to create the Pueblo post and Mrs. Goucher worked on our Passionate Prickly Pear Jelly post. We made the video though. We think that these posts are popular because they are really interesting and people are interested in the Pueblo villages and making prickly pear jelly. Plus we used some pretty cool technology resources.
We are all working on different posts, but Kimberly and Will’s post is the best. They really enjoyed doing the research and posting cool facts about the natives.
Please help our class out. If you are from another country and visit our site please leave a comment so we can find your blog and maybe add you to our blogroll!
