What fun we had Friday writing about writing! I was astounded by your writing. I could tell you gave it a lot of thought. Miss Neville and I were whispering over in the corner of the lab about how impressed we were! Did you hear us?
I was disapponted that a few of you had not done the assignment Miss Neville gave you. You did not get to blog with us. I hope you will think about the importance of being responsible because we missed your being in the group. I am going to think positive thoughts that that will not happen again.
I want to complement Mimi on getting her assignment done as she was absent the day the assignment was made. That is being responsible. We'll add her picture when she gets a chance to draw it. Your clever illustrations added a lot of pizazz to your blogging posts. Friday was also a day full of establishing routines that will save us time so we have more time for blogging and answering comments. We just couldn't get to all the comments but we will try again! You were all so excited about the number of comments you had. We thank those readers who took the time to respond to our writing. It is so exciting to open up those comments. That is what my fifth graders loved the most about blogging - oh the anticipation! It was wonderful.
