Last week our class blog was selected as a blog of merit to be recommended to others. Ms. Nichols and her class deemed our blog as praiseworthy and she has named our blog as one of ten that she is “passing on” for others to follow.
The “Blog Chain – Pass it on” Award
is an acknowledgement that someone saw something in your blog that others should see and read. WOW, how humbling.
The rules of the award are as follows:
1- Copy and display the picture of the award given to you;
2- Link back to the blog that nominated you;
3- Nominate 10 different blogs yourself;
4- Inform the people you nominated, so they can in turn, continue the chain and spread the word about other great blogs out there.
This is my first year attempting to blog for myself and for my class, so it is indeed an honor to be recommended. Our blog is a collection of bits and pieces of content that I deemed worthy of being shared. I have compiled: videos, work samples, journal topics, current event updates, puzzles, etc. We are pleased to have our work noticed.
It is difficult to suggest blogs to follow because my bookmark tag for “blogs2follow” has 200 links to check out and narrowing 200 to 10 seemed a daunting task. Here is my list, not in order of preference of 10 of the many blogs that I follow:
- http://huzzah.edublogs.org/ a grade 5 – 6 class of 10 & 11 year old learners (and one much, much older learner) who have a lot to celebrate and share. Our classroom is in the beautiful Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.
