My Christmas Card to You: Web 2 Wonderland

OK, here's my really goofy, Christmas Card to all of you, my readers, out there. You can follow the link to youtube and post a video response. I'll be watching them and may even put some of your Christmas greetings here for other educators to hear.

I have photos that have been contributed from my classroom (Camilla, GA), from Oregon, Germany, Maine, and Bangladesh. It is exciting to see the faces of these kids. (And make sure you listen to the end to the hilarious ending concocted by one of my tenth graders!)

Enjoy and forgive me for my imperfect singing, I had 5 minutes at break on the last day of school to record it so I had only one take! My student said it was OK so, here it is!

Have a very Merry Christmas and happy New Year. Take time with the family! I wish I could talk to each one of your personally and wish you happy holidays — but hey, I am!

Happy Holidays!

Loved the video. Have a great Christmas.

You’ve got me thinking now. How can I do something like this.

Merry Christmas to you and your family.

This was so much fun to see, I can’t wait to show my students.The song and your voice really added to the movie your students made. 5 stars!

I have to admit that my dial-up at home is so slow that while the data was transferring I wrapped 6 presents and got the dishwasher going. ;)
Living in the boonies is wonderful for the peace and beauty, but the technology stinks. When we first moved here we were on a party line. My mother-in-law was on the same line.

Some day Santa will bring me fast Internet connection without breaking the bank.
Enjoy the Christmas break and think of all the great things we will be doing in the new year. I actually have a couple of things up my sleeve-new learning for my students and me.

Bravo for your Christmas greeting. We should collect all the web 2 Christmas Carols into an online “songbook.” I have one (lyrics only) to contribute, too . Anybody want to host it on a wiki or should we let it be a nest of links from wiki to blog and so on?

I love the web 2.0 “carol.” I think we should collect them from all those who have them on blogs and wikis. Perhaps someone can start a wiki for a web 2.0 holiday songbook? Here is my contribution.

My family loves the holidays, beginning with Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years and Mardi Gras so we always have lots of parties. This year I decided to find real unique holiday cards that I could write my own holiday party invitation wordings. I found three great sites, Cards Shoppe, Holiday-Invitations and Invitations-Shoppe.

I added all three sites to my favorites and ordered from Holiday-Invitations and was very pleased. I got lots of compliments, and was so happy. It made the holidays extra special!
