Watching my students blog

I welcome my students into my room during break and lunch or after school to help them set up their own personal blogs. I also ask them to tell me so I can subscribe to their blog via bloglines (and let their parents know so they can monitor it.)

I am very pleasantly pleased with the vacation blog of a ninth grader of mine named Casey. Casey has had the rare opportunity to travel to many places that even I have not. She has wonderful, down to earth parents and I love her dearly.

Her most recent post about New York is very good, I think, and I was hoping some of you who have been there recently (its been about 10 years a go for me) might post a comment.

Thank you so much Mrs. Vicki! I have so many topics I want to blog about, but I haven’t had time yet. I will certainly get more immersed in the summertime (which is soon, thank goodness!) I have all the topics on my palm pilot. You have gotten me too involved in all this technology! :)

That’s pretty cool, will help them get an understanding of marketing and literature.
