Breaking news, for the rest of the term I’m going to experiment with a new way of sharing our learning in R5! Instead of using our class blog to share our learning I am going to use our class twitter account!
I have been blogging in my class for the last 5 years and over that time our class blog has won numerous awards (Interface Blog of the Year, Edublog World Blog of the Year nominee). I have thoroughly enjoyed blogging but think it is now time for a change!
So from now on we are going to use our class twitter account, @PalmyKids, to share with the world! Our class twitter account is already very active as we use it to take part in Kidsedchatnz and connect with other classes around the globe.
I think by using our class twitter account we can share more easily and more often. It also means that the kids can be responsible for the sharing as well.
Basically we will be sharing the same stuff (photos, videos, learning, etc…) but on a different platform.
You don’t need a twitter account to see what’s happening all you need to do is click the picture below and read the timeline!
Let me know what you think, I’ll be interested in your thoughts!
The Kidsedchatnz mascot has been hanging out with @PalmyKids in Palmerston North over the last weeks. It had a fab time but unfortunately we had to send it out into the big wide world!
Where did it go next? Well it has just arrived in Henderson, Auckland and will be staying with @Rm1HNS.
While it was in Palmy the kids came up with a name for it. So what is it’s name? Well Aye came up with the name ‘Follow’! We thought this was a great name as Kidsedchatnz is all about following each other on Twitter!
Congratulation goes to Ana in our class for winning the Gold Medal in the English ICAS Exams. Ana’s mark was the highest in all of Australian and she will be going to receive her medal at a special ceremony later in the year.
Well done Ana, we are all very proud of you! Here’s a little video of her receiving her results at assembly!
This week’s hands-on homework task is to create a poster advertising Kidsedchatnz using the cool app Phoster. Phoster is a cool poster making app that has lots of cool templates. I thought this would be an appropriate task as R5 have taken over Kidsedchatnz and this would help advertise the concept.
Your poster must include information about Kidsedchatnz like time, date and blog address.
So what are you waiting for? Grab your Ipad and get creating!
Welcome to Room 5's Blog! We are a Y4 Class from Russell Street School in Palmerston North, New Zealand. We use this space to share all the great things we are learning and let you know what is happening in our class.
Snail and whale came to our classroom for the 2nd year in a row. The last class had so much fun, that we had to invite them back! Snail and whale got to have so much fun and do some many activities. Not only did they get to attend music, gym, and spanish class with […]
