Recently I have been working on setting up my class blog by myself, and I have managed. I'm not much of a bling person in anything that I do, so to decide to do that is quite out of my comfort zone. I have recognised that my students do enjoy bling. It took me a while to find a wallpaper that I thought suited the age range of of 9-11 with my composite class. I had to refine search engines, and I looked at blogs like "Bling your blog" and the "cutest blog on the block"which I had used before. Finding widgets was also interesting.

Anyway, room21bds2010.blogspot.com is my class blog. I now need to get parents commenting so that it is purposeful for my students.
