Meet the Techie Kids

Challenge Week 1

We have joined the Student Blogging Challenge . We are very excited to see what we will learn.

2014 Student Blogging Challenge

Please see our “About Us” page. We will continue to share updated information as we learn from our new blogging buddies.

Here is a video created by our state’s tourism department sharing some activities that we love during our current season of winter.





I was planning to ask everyone in class which winter fun activities they have done this season. Unfortunately, we’ve had another 2 “snow days” this week for inclement weather conditions. That makes 11 snow days this year. Since we aren’t together in class today, I’ll post this poll and you can tell me from home.


Here are some questions for our blogging buddies.

Do you have snow where you live?

Please tell us about your weather.


Snow Days

Snow days are great, aren’t they? We had two of them last week. It looked like a snow globe in my backyard. I’m sure you all had a lot of fun playing outside. Vote on our poll so I can see which winter activities you enjoy most. Then be sure to leave us a comment and share a story about your snow day adventure.



What is your favorite thing to do in the snow?


Tell me a story about your snow day adventures.


Write a poem using your five senses to describe how you feel when you are outside in the snow.


If you don’t usually see snow in your area, tell us about the first time you did.



Favorite Genres

Take this poll to let me know what your favorite genre is. After you’ve decided, tell me what books or series is your favorite within that genre.

Here’s an example of each genre:

Historical Fiction~Little House on the Prairie

Mystery~ Nancy Drew

 Fantasy~The Chronicles of Narnia

Realistic Fiction~Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing

Poetry~ Where the Sidewalk Ends 

Remember to use the genre posters on the back wall for more information!
