  1. Thanks for the link to my blog. I didn't know I'd written a winning post until I saw your comment! I'm glad that I've spent the time preparing before starting to blog with my students. The start of the class blog will be hectic enough with each student creating their own blog. I'm thankful I've learned so much in advance - hopeful that way I can stay one step ahead of them!
