Hi there!

I’d like to welcome you to our blog. You are going to be sharing your news not only with your family and friends, but also with people around the world.

I’d also like to tell you that I’m very proud of this group. You have all been working very hard this year and you are all making great progress.

I will be reading all your stories and commenting on them. This is OUR project, so remember, it’s very important to read your classmates’ contributions, comment on them and reply to all the comments on your posts too.

I’m sure you’ll all be writing amazing posts.

So…let our blogging adventure begin! ENJOY IT!



PS: Someone you all love, but can’t go to school, wants to say hello. He’ll be also reading your stories. Oh, and he knows you love the song Waka-Waka…

    Dear all,

    This idea is fantastic!! It is wonderful to share experiences, thoughts, wishes, and so on… it´s like having magic keys that opens a world full of exiting, loving and moving ideas! This magic key that in the first time is personal … invites others to be part of what you are thinking, wishing or shareing.

    It is a way to extend emotions and make new friends, even if you don´t see them because they are not around you.

    I love to join this Magic Team!
    Huge hugs to all of you!!
    great video Greta!
    My friend “vickucha” told me about this site, it is a very good site!
    Some friends that know you, tell me many things about you, and for the things they tell me, you are the best teacher!!!!!
    kisses, greta!

    Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments!

    I really hope we all learn a lot from this.

    Thanks for your comment and support! My students are very excited about this project. You should have seen their faces, when they read your comment. You’re awesome! Thanks again for helping me upload Cookie’s video.

    @Flor (Bauti’s Mom)
    Thanks for your support! I’m so glad you are commenting on the blog. It’s very important to all of us. I liked what you said about having a magic key. We’ll definitely open many new doors.

    Greta, your students are very lucky to have you as their teacher! They are a great group, and I love reading and commenting on their blog posts. It gets me excited about going back to school and blogging with my students too.

    Have a great week everyone!
  24. George Couros
    This looks REALLY great! I am glad that you have the kids blogging as well :) What a great way to set up the beginning of the year. You will be amazed at how you will be able to see the growth of everyone over the year. You are also role modeling to them what it will look like which is so important to them to be successful!

    Great job Greta (Great) :)

    Congratulations Greta for this project!! It’s very important for our children. We love you. Laura (Tody’s mother).

    I loved reading your students’ blogs! They are off to an amazing start. Will they be communicating in Spanish as well? Communicating with others from all around the world really does show us how similar we all are. I look forward to learning new things from your students!!

    See ya on Twitter, my friend!

    Hi, Greta and kids!
    I’m really impressed! This is an incredible idea!I’ve read all your students’ posts and I’ve found them fascinating and so well written!!! I’m very proud of you all. This shows the standards the children can achieve when they are motivated. Here they can write when they want about whatever they like and obviously they are enjoying this freedom.
    I hope they keep up sharing their emotions, opinions and stories with us and people from all over the world. I’m sure this will be an unforgettable experience and they will learn much more than in any ordinary lesson.
