  1. Hi Miss Morris and Miss Jordan,

    I am starting a blog with prep students this year. I am completely new to blogging but really looking forward to getting involved. I am really impressed by your blog. Well done to all involved. Please could I relicate your blogging guidelines on my blog. I will of course acknowledge and link to your blog.

    Many Thanks,

  2. Hello Ms Morris,
    I’ve been interested in setting up a class blog since late last year and I came across your class blog during my research. Your class blog is ABSOLUTELY wonderful and terrific!
    I’m teaching year 2 this year and would like to start our class blog. I am not very tech savvy 🙂 but your class blog has inspired me to learn more about blogging and web 2.0 tool.
    Would it be alright if I replicate your blog guidelines on our class blog? I will of course acknowledge it.
    My class will look forward to follow your class blog this year and learn from you.


    • Hello Irene,

      Thanks for your comment and your lovely compliments!

  4. Hi Kathleen
    I keep working on my blog and wondering what others are doing. Having the guidelines posted on the website is a good reference for parents and kids alike, and I must confess I keep coming back to your website to see how you have set yours up. I have worded my guidelines differently but I have based the points on yours and will make sure that is acknowledged on the page.
    Thanks for all your help!

  5. Dear Mrs. Morris,

    Hi, I’m a student from Mr.Avery’s Class. I just want to thank you for sending us the Vegemite. I thought it had a strong, salty taste and I liked it! It definitely made our day exciting. Thanks again have a great school!

    • Dear Taite,

  6. Hi Kathleen and Kelly,

    I was passed on your blog details from a fellow teacher and are absolutely amazed at the work you have put in. How do you ever find the time?

    I have decided I will be blogging this year and would like to use and source your blog guidelines. I also would like to add your blog as a link. Do you mind if I do this

    I have been reading some of your posts and delighted to see what your students are doing. The post about your student who had a response back from her favourite author was beautiful! I will be showing this to my principal when school starts again to sell the benefits of blogging.

    Keep up the good work and I look forward to reading your blog.

    Many Thanks
