Hi Group Two,

Wow!! You’ve got some “neat” thoughts on blogging! “Even if you get frustrated always keep trying and you will accomplish your goals” was my favorite thought. I have to remember that when I’m working on my computer a lot. Which thought is your favorite? Do you think it will tell me something about you?

Best,
Lani

leslie

That was my favorite one too
"Even if you get frustrated always keep trying an YOU will accomplish your goals"
Yes or maybe because i do try to accomplish my goals but i dont get frustarated.
how old are you?

lindsey

My favorite one was the one that said 'If you work hard you will be able to get better at this and you get older you can use it wisely.'

victoria

Thank you for your coment.My favorite thought is that "You might not have power but you might have the strenght to use your brain".This would tell you alot about me because I don't have power, but I do use my brain alot.Now I have a question for you!Are you married, do you have kids, and what's your friends like?

Hi Leslie, Lindsey and Victoria,
Leslie, we share that thought in common. I had to make sure I didn't get frustrated last night when my comments on another blog disappeared! You ask how old I am; I hope you won't stop commenting to me when you discover that I was born in 1946. So how old am I?

Lindsey, I really like your favorite! I know this is true!! Can you tell me a time when this happened to you?

Victoria,
I have a question for you, you use your brain alot which is so very good; don't you think that is a kind of power? You asked if I was married--yes! We don't have children but we do have a super 93 pound German Shepard named Harley. My friends are like your teacher; she is one of my best friends.

Best,
Lani

Group 2,
What marvelous ideas you came up with about your blog. It is interesting that you write about being able to learn this well enough to teach your family or other friends because I know some families who actually keep in touch with grandparents and siblings through a family blog. That is something I would like to learn more about.
The introduction from your teacher says that you write some wonderful stories. Will some of these appear on your blog? How will you decide what to post?

Group 2-
Cynthia is right; blogging is a great skill to teach your family. Imagine being an expert at something that maybe even your parents or grandparents haven't learned yet! Lots of people use blogs to communicate with family members who live out of town. Say you have brothers or sisters in college- they could visit your blog website and read all about your schoolwork! How cool is that?
Blogging is a great way to stay in touch with people you might not get to talk to everyday, in addition to all the things you said above: using vocabulary, showing how powerful your brain is, and helping you decide what kind of job you might want to have when you are older.

Ed

Group two-
I enjoyed reading your diagram. It’s funny to read that you say you will be doing something like blogging when you get older. Probably, you all will spend a lot of time working on the computer. When I was young, we didn’t even have computers. We had to write everything by hand or use a typewriter – it was a mess. I guess I should be glad we had pencils and typewriters at least and didn’t have to use rocks and sticks like a prehistoric caveman. Maybe your grandchildren will use a writing tool that is much better than a computer. Maybe someone will invent a machine that reads minds.

Group 2,
You all have some wonderful ideas about blogging! I think you are right that it is important to write about your thoughts and opinions. You ARE powerful when you have ideas that you can share with others, and blogging is a great way to share. I hope that you'll all have lots of opportunities to write about your own opinions and express yourselves on your blogs. You are so lucky to be beginning blogging in 5th grade. Just think, pretty soon you'll be blogging experts!

You guys have done a wonderful job! I love the graph you have put up; doesn't it make sort out your ideas wonderfully? I agree that blogging can help you write better and get a better understanding of yourself. Sometimes we don't know exactly what to say or how to say it immediately, and blogging can help us become better at forming our ideas because we have time to think through everything and write it out. Then, we say just what we want. You have done a very nice job!

Joseph

I agree with Ed, it's interesting to think about young students considering how the internet or computers will be a part of their lives. While computers did exist while I was your age, they weren't nearly as big a part of our lives as they are now. I hope that you do continue to blog, because it is a great place to practice your writing and to give others a chance to see what you think.

Hi group 2! You guys have alot of insight on blogging. Thats great because it shows that you are paying attention in class and learning what you're being taught by your teachers. The point that really stood out to me was the one about "not being scared because this is the place to be heard". It's good that children today have the resources that we didn't have when I was in elementary school because although I was a good student I was often scared to voice my opinions in the classroom. Do any of you find yourselves afraid of speaking in class...if so, how are you planning on overcoming that fear?
