Student Blogging Challenge Begins!

Edublog's Student Blogging Challenge begins this week, 
and my student bloggers are very excited! Visit the student blogs via our sidebar. 

It is exciting to be connecting with students all over the world! Look at this list of continents and countries. 
  • What continent is missing and why? 
  • Which countries will you connect with and why? 

Here are the tasks for Week 1:

We got right to work. 
First, we created avatars using the site choices below: 

Peanutize Me

PowerPuff Yourself


Next students completed their Avatar Post and/or their About Me Page. Finally, bloggers added the appropriate URL to this Google Form. Soon, we will have comments and the connections will begin!

Thank you to @kathleen_morris  and @tasteach  and Edublogs for the fun challenges!

  1. Dear Mrs. Yollis and class,

    I'm so excited to see that you're all setting up your own blogs and taking part in the challenge!

    I've checked out some of your first posts and avatars. They look terrific! I can already tell you're going to be role model bloggers for others.

    What have you found to be the trickiest part of blogging so far? I know when I've tried to learn a new program or tool in the past, it can feel very hard. In fact, there have been times where I've felt like giving up! But when things start to come together, it's a wonderful feeling!

    Best wishes from Australia,
    Kathleen Morris
