You need 1000 points and you need to get the puffer pigs to get the 1000 points.

You are not allowed to hit the fence but you only have three chances,  you have  to count  the errors.

Quadblogging: It’s our turn.

This week it is our turn to be the focus of our Quadblogging buddies. We would like to try something new this week and hope that our three Quadblogging classes can get involved. Over on the far right of our blog there is a ‘Send Voicemail’ tab (Pictured below is a photo of our blog and circled in red is the location of the tab). By clicking this tab you can send us a voicemail. We would really love some Voicemail questions from you. You might have a question about Australia, Adelaide, Our Class, subjects we do, facilities at our school or our blog. We would love to hear from you and answer your questions. To help us out with answering your questions could you please let us know who you are (first names only) and what school you are from before asking your question. Our class is waiting to hear from you.

Blogging Avatars for 2012

Avatars are a way to have a graphical presence on the internet without using your photo. We have constructed our avatars that we will be using on our blog for this year. Check out below what we came up with.

Do our Avatars remind you of anyone famous? Leave a comment with your look a like suggestions.

My must see place in South Australia is Monarto Zoo

A ‘must see’ place in South Australia is Monarto Zoo, because you can touch animal skins. You take the bus to look at animals. You can get off the bus to get a closer look at the animals. You can have a yummy lunch there. You can look in the gift shop.

Creating a Blockquote

I had a question recently from a teacher on how you go about including a ‘Blockquote’ in your posts. Below are some simple instructions on how to do this within WordPress.


How we created our class avatars

Student Blogging Challenge Week 2

2. As a class, put together a post, movie or slideshow including your avatars.

Miss W Student Blogging Challenge

When setting up our classroom blog, creating our personal avatars was one of the first things we did. We used ‘My Avatar Editor‘, pictured below.


As you can see it creates an avatar very familiar to most students that have used the Wii. All the students in my class were able to create their own avatar, upload and crop it independently. Below is a slide show of what we all created.
