  1. Great site. I teach 5th grade in Brook Park, Ohio (part of the Berea City School District). I was looking for inspiration for the up coming school year. You’ve definately inspired me. Great job. Hoping to get my students blogging soon. Any suggestions on how to get them started?

  2. Thanks for the kind words. My district uses edublogs, so that’s what I’m using now. In the past I used I’ve also seen a good site at I set them up for them, then just tell them the login and password (I give everyone the same passsword to mke it easy to remember). I have them do all their writing assignments on the blog. This gives them a 24/7 access to their work and writing. I also encourage them to write about whatever they want, whenever they want.

    Good Luck!

  3. Greetings from Montreal!
    I’m taking a quick tour of the blogs taking part in the new Challenge and just wanted to say hello.
    So far what I find really unique is your “Slideshows” section. What a great idea.

  4. Hello from North Carolina!

    Your site is absolutely fantastic. We (me and about 100 8th graders) would love to connect with you guys. Our group is also registered for the blogging challenge–feel free to add us to your blogroll.

  5. Hi Mr Ferreirae, your blog is fantastic! I have added some of your great maths games as links on my blog – I teach a grade 4/5 class in the Dandenong Ranges outside Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
    I was looking for the blog challenge picture as a story starter… is it on your blog? Perhaps I misread the post – am home today with a sick child and little sleep so quite possible I made a mistake.
    Happy blogging
    Regards, Sam Graunke.

  10. Hi Bill

    I loved your blog, this is a best way to interact with your pupil and make them motivated towards study, I tried to go through whole blog but this is so big that I think it would be better to bookmark it and then browse it sometime later. This is such a nice way to be in touch 24/7.

  11. Hi. Is Serious doing good in school? Can you make Serious and his classmates read an assigned book and make them write a 3-5 sentence report on the book.
