  1. I have 4th and 5th graders in South Carolina.

    The fifth graders are up and going strong– they were so excited to see the comments some of you left! More from them today at

    I also finally have my 4th graders started and they are anxious for some feedback. Thanks to all of you who have kids commenting, as well as those of you who comment yourself! Here’s the 4th grade link:


    • Hi, Beth,

      Some of my kids are wanting to comment on your kids’ and Mrs. Campbell’s kids’ blogs, but we are getting an error message that “Only class members with permission may leave comments.” (On Mrs. Campbell’s blog). Is that what she intends? Is there something I’m missing?


  2. I’m new to blogging, so I made my students’ blogs too private for you all to view. They are writing, but the blogs are only “viewable” by my classroom group. I’ll have to contribute to the classroom challenge next year. Sorry!
