Student Blogging Challenge 2016

It’s time to start making connections with other student bloggers.  I’ve registered our class blog for the March 2016 Student Blogging Challenge, and I need your help to make sure we get started on the right foot:

STEP 1: Check out class blogs participants list and start visiting other students your age or with your interests.  When you find another class blog or student blog that you like, leave a quality comment invite the blog’s author(s) to check out your blog or our class blog (Don’t forget to include the URL to your blog to make it easier for them to find you!)

 STEP 2: While visiting the Student Blogging Challenge homepage, click on Follow so you will be notified whenever a new blogging challenge is published.

STEP 3: Make sure you have some great posts written so others can leave comments.  The last thing you want is for someone to visit your blog–only to find nothing there!  You might also want to the class blogs widget or a links widget to your own blog so that visitors can check out our class blog and your classmates blogs.


Spring Break Challenge

Guest post by Mr. Back

So, I am laying out a spring break challenge to everyone that would like to participate individually or as a group. I would like anyone and everyone to build a game. You can build an arcade game or a toss game or a creative game that you can come up with yourself.

The rules are simple; it must be a game that people can play. The main structure must be made out of cardboard and tape. If you need inspiration, you can go to Caine’s or

All games will be set up during P.E. for all classes to enjoy on the week of April 27th. So you may bring it in anytime before then to the fitness room or drop it off at the office anytime before then. Please bring with instructions on how to play and your name on it. Let’s get creative!

How should we introduce ourselves?

Should we create a slide show with our avatars to add to our “About Page,” or should we create a video to introduce ourselves (being mindful, of course, about protecting our privacy)?

Create a slideshow with our avatars and captions.
