  3. Its great to see that you are still going strong!😃

  4. Great work bloggers!:)

  5. Hi Mr Baldock and class.
    I really like your blog too.
    My school is in Adelaide at Colonel Light Gardens. We are a group of Receptions.
    Ms Grant (teacher) and we have a class blog too.
    Like a previous commenter, I’d like to know where did you got your colourful icons on your sidebar?
    Sarah Grant

    • Hi Sarah,

      You have a very informative blog. I noticed that you recently did a unit on money. You might be interested in the IWB resources I’ve produced on another site that I run called http://primaryedutech.com.

      There is a link in the footer to my blog as to where I got the icons. To put them in the side bar, I first of all set up how I wanted them to look in a post and then I copied the HTML code into a text widget.

      All the best for the rest of the term.


      • Hi Scott,
        Thanks for your reply and your link. I will share this with the staff at my school. I will also look into using your cool widgets when I have some free time!
        Sarah Grant

  6. Hi Mr Baldock & Year 2/3. I love your blog 🙂 I can’t believe I haven’t come across it before. We are also in Adelaide – we are a Year 6/7 class in Hawthorndene. Here is our blog – http://thompson67.edublogs.org Keep up the great work, you’re doing a wonderful job.
    PS – Mr Baldock, how did you get your icons for the different categories in your sidebar? They look very cool!

    • Hi Pam,

      Thanks for your comment. Your blog looks great. I see that you have got involved in Quadblogging. That is something I would like to do next year. How did you go about it?

      The icons come from http://dryicons.com. The credit for them is down in my footer of the blog. You can use them free as long as you credit the source of them and don’t use them for commercial purposes. I first of all set up how I wanted them to look in a post and then I copied the HTML code into a text widget.

      All the best with what’s left of the school year.



  7. G’day Mr Baldock’s class,

    Thanks for registering for the September student blogging challenge. Make sure you visit the blog every week beginning September 12, when the first challenge will be published.

  9. How did you get your fancy title at the top of your blog? Mine just stays with the font the site provides. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
    Derek Rankin

    • Hi Derek,

      I used Adobe Photoshop to create a transparent Gif of the title I used. You can use any graphics type program to create the banner you like and then insert it at the top of your blog, so you are not just stuck with the standard banner or label.

    Thanks for visiting our new blog. Sorry it’s taken so long to get back to you – been having too much fun on the holidays! Our blog has now moved to 56c2011.global2.vic.edu.au – hopefully we won’t have to move again. Look forward to seeing all that you and the 2/3s get up to this year!

    Mr Mills and 56C @ Berwick Fields PS

  15. Hi Mr Baldock, great blog – I can’t believe you are new to blogging, very impressive. I loved the google map. You are sure to get many visits to your page – well done. I also love the layout of the links on the sidebar.

  16. Hi Mr Baldock,

    This is a great blog and a fantastic ‘About Us’ page. I like the idea of adding a Google map and a weather widget to the page.
    I am new to blogging and this is the first time my class have entered the Edublog Challenge. We are already learning so much about how to make a blog interesting, how to make a quality comment and how to keep safe when online.
    When we get back from school holidays next week I will share this blog with my class.

      Thanks Ms Woodward. For someone that is new to blogging you wouldn’t know. Your blog looks really good. I’ve added a link to your blog on our ‘Blogroll’.

  17. G’day Mr Baldock and students,
    Thanks for joining the student blogging challenge. I hope you enjoy the activities and make new friends around the world.

    The first challenge has been posted at http://studentchallenge.edublogs.org Make sure you visit there every Monday to get the new set of challenges.

    This is a fantastic ‘About’ page. I will be linking to it in the future.

  18. Hi Mr Baldock,

    Thanks for visiting our blog! I love the look of your site, especially the avatars for everyone.

    Responding to your question, the program that the newsletter you were looking at was created in is called Comic Life (http://plasq.com/comiclife-win ). It is great for doing a range of things, and really easy to use. You can see the comic recounts of camp that our students made on our blogsite.



  19. Dear Mr.Baldock
