Glad to hear from you, I am so swamped with work too these days, there are things which i have to do and after i am done doing them :P there is no time to do the things i want to do! :( I hope to get my bearings back sometime next week, and then will surely become active again on ning groups.
With your interest in using technology in classroom and being an EFL teacher, I thought you might be interested in visiting my website www.WordAhead.com where you will find short and simple vocabulary videos. I am sure your students will enjoy watching them and will learn new words easily.
Hi Gilmar, Yes, we received your message on the blog and i read it to my class. They found it interesting, causing them to look forward even more to hearing from your students. We will be patient. Looking forward to it,
Hi Gilmar, Thank you for the message. I knew you hadn't forgetten, i just figured you had gotten busy, which is understandable. We are looking forward to hearing from you. The Brazil post in still on my blog when you and your students are ready to share. I am actually not very familiar with ning. What does that all entail?
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Hi Gilmar, i will have my students post comments to your blog to tell your students about the USA and our school. Will you have your students answer the questions we have for you and your students on my blog?
Hi Gilmar, I've been blogging for three years now. I think it's a very powerful tool, something that gets the kids excited and offers them new ways of learning material. i will post something on the blog today, i will call it: "Hello, Brazil" Your students will just have to click where it says "comments" and then type their answers. I am so excited to see what they have to say, as are my students. I definately suggest you make a blog, it's a lot of fun! They do not have to use their last names if they don't feel comfortable, but first names would be good. Thanks again and we will anxiously await some responses.
Hi Gilmar, Sorry for the delay in messaging. I spoke with my classes and we came up with some questions we would like your students to answer for us. My students are very interested in learning about what it's like in your country. Let me know where you are at as far as this project and if i should post the questions on the blog. I will post the questions with a brazil flag and then possibly your students could answer them for us? that would be awesome. Then we can share with your students what it's like here, about our school, etc. Let me know,
Hi Gilmar, Hope all is well in Brazil. How are things looking with your new classes? I told my students about the possibility of connecting to students around the world, and they are excited. So what are your thoughts about corresponding? I was thinking we (you and I) could post questions on my blog for our students to respond to to teach each other about our countries/schools, etc. You could send me the questions you want me to post. Let me know what you are thinking,
Hi Gilmar. I talked with our Tech. coordiantor and unfortunately, Skype, MSN, and yahoo messengers are restricted by the state of South Dakota, so i will not be able to correspond on one of those avenues. I think it will work to correspond through email to get things set up, the details, etc. i was thinking about having our students correspond back and forth about questions we pose on my blog: http://waterforsixthgrade.blogspot.com What do you think?
Hi Gilmar. Awesome! Thank you very much for accepting my request. This will be a great experience for our students. I look forward to hearing from you and working out the details. Thanks again,
My email address is: Daniel.KIumper@k12.sd.us
Hello. Welcome to Classroom 2.0. Would you be willing to have your students interact with my students in the USA? I would love to give my students the opportunity to learn from other students living in a different country.
