I Need Your Help!

Hey Kids!

Here’s a little off-topic request for you – please pass it along to anyone who might be interested, please?

I’m teaching English to young children this year, and I would like to participate in a sort of 21st-Century “Blog-Pals” project with a teacher in an anglophone country. The group is from 7 to 10 years old, and it’s an extra-curricular class that doesn’t meet every day (meaning, not a huge time or planning commitment for the teacher in question).

We will be creating a class blog, and I would love to find someone who is teaching maybe 3rd, 4th, or 5th graders (who has easy access to technology in their classroom ) to allow our students to communicate via the Blog and/or email. I’ve only got about 10ish students, but their language level is very high. I’m open to any suggestions or propositions (if you have a large class we could do group letters, or each of my kids could correspond with two of yours, your students could commit to commenting on our blog 1x per week and we would do the same, etc.).

If you, or someone you love, or someone you just kind-of like, or maybe just randomly met…, is interested, please just email me directly rather than leaving a comment here. Thanks so much! See you tomorrow for Raw Thursday!

  1. Hey yah! I have run a couple of blog PD sessions on the International School conference circut. I have a couple of contacts from the different places I have spoken – where I have connected with educators who are interested in this type of tech-ed. So……shall I hook you up? Let me know.

    If you send me an email indicating some interest I will send you the blogs I have run for everything from my college students (from two years ago – 5 years ago, but all still up), and my more current ones with the younger kidlets (grade five and grade six).

    Great idea!!!
