    Thanks for sharing your classroom! I really enjoyed learning how y’all (Can you tell I’m from Texas?) learn each day. I plan to share your sites with my teachers!

    Wow, I am so inspired…. I teach Year 4 in Beijing and you have given me a bunch of great ideas.

    A couple of questions -

    1) how long does it take you to manage all of this every week?

    2) how do I find the movement videos you were showing on YouTube. It is blocked here in China but I do have a proxy and can download and convert so would love to use what I saw.

    Again, thanks for the inspiration.

    Amazing presentation of how you use technology in your classroom. I’m a teacher of year 3 children (7-9) and am on the journey of incorporating blogs and wikis. I was amazed by how technology is woven into your school day and how your class are readily using these technologies. I reallly liked how you use the wiki as a simplified launchpad for the web. Would love to visit…
