Marleen - In the event you intend to participate on my world diets blog, I must inform you the address I initially gave you was wrong. Our blog address is cgagnon.edublogs.org rather than firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
The 6th graders at Chichester Central School in Chichester, New Hampshire (USA), would like to invite you to participate in our blog. We have created a blog, which we hope will allow us to explore varying diets from around the world. Our goal is to understand what other country’s diets consist of and what they consider to be healthy. Here in New Hampshire, we eat a lot of seafood and lobsters as we are so close to the Atlantic Ocean. We also grow and eat fresh corn, apples, strawberries, blueberries and even pumpkins. If you are interested, please visit our blog at email@example.com and respond to the “World Diets” page. If you respond, it would be helpful if you could include which country or area of the world you are responding from. If you are not interested, it would be much appreciated if you could pass this along to a friend or colleague that may be.
We here in New Hampshire look forward to your response. Thanks

De 6e klassers van Chichester Central School in Chichester, New Hampshire (VS), wil u graag uitnodigen om deel te nemen aan onze blog. We hebben een blog, waarvan wij hopen dat ons in staat stellen in verschillende diëten ontdekken uit de hele wereld. Ons doel is om te begrijpen wat andere land diëten bestaan en wat zij beschouwen als gezond. Hier in New Hampshire, we eten veel van zeevruchten en kreeften als we zijn zo dicht bij de Atlantische Oceaan. We hebben ook groeien en eten verse mais, appels, aardbeien, bosbessen en zelfs pompoenen. Als u geïnteresseerd bent, kunt u terecht op onze blog op firstname.lastname@example.org en reageren op het "World Diets" pagina. Als u reageert, zou het nuttig zijn als je kon ook welk land of gebied van de wereld u reageert uit. Indien u niet geïnteresseerd bent, dan zou het veel op prijs gesteld als u deze doorgeven aan een vriend of collega die kunnen worden.
Wij hier in New Hampshire kijken uit naar uw reactie. bedankt
Our Brainyflix video contest just ended, and I wanted to thank you for helping us get the word out. We got 800 submissions from across the country!
That said, MIT was really happy with the results and will let us run another contest, so we're going for it! But this time, we're gonna have kids create Brainypics flashcards - which are images and sentences paired up with a one of our SAT/ACT words. The contest ends May 22nd, and there'll be iTunes and a cash prize like last time. To boot, we'll double the payout if the kids can hit a certain goal. More details at brainyflix.com/main/contest_rules.
Do you mind passing my message along to students and your HS colleagues again?
Hey Marleen. Probably the best thing to do is to check out the contest homepage where you can view samples videos and then read over the Contest Rules. If you have any outstanding questions, message me here or email me at email@example.com. Thanks
Hi Marleen. I was wondering if you and your students would be interested in participating in a nationwide SAT Vocab Video Contest @ MIT university. If not, perhaps you have some educator contacts you could direct me to. You can view contest details at BrainyFlix.com Please let me know. Thanks!
