Melville Intermediate - Go Check these wonderful blogs out
At the moment, although its the school holidays all the teachers are working hard at preparing for the start to the 2010 school year. One of the pleasing aspects of the holidays is that it allows ourselves to look online at what other students and teachers from around the world are doing. Three sites that I visited from the last few days I have really enjoyed. The first is a blog in the UK - North Nottinghamshire called "PreistSic5" a class of 9 and 10 year old students, they have just started putting up some clever posts one of which asked people to put pictures of their classroom up (hence the slide show). Their blog is really got some good ideas on it!
Secondly I found a blog in Africa, in Tanzania the International School of Tanganyika's Grade Two site, the work that is going online from there is truly superb, a real great quality to it and a wonderful site. Wonderful to have a chance for your students to travel to Africa too!
Finally I also found Miss Noshie's Classroom site from Beirut, Lebanon. Again a wonderful opportunity for your students to go somewhere different and to experience students living in a different environment, I didn't know for instance that it snowed in Beirut in Winter!
