  1. Hello and thankyou for a very helpful blogging session.
    I still have a lot to learn but found it useful to navigate around the blogs by completing the family blogging afternoon quiz.
    Thomas and I weren’t quite sure where to leave this comment so hope it finds you.

  2. Hi Ladies
    We are moving towards team teaching/ cooperative teaching next semester and know that both of you have had some experience. Have you got any tips or know of some websites that would be helpful? I guess we are looking at what strategies and approaches that work best. We are very excited about this development and believe that will help us grow professionally, as well as supporting our kids better in their learning.
    Any advice would be great!

      • Hi Kathleen
        Thanks so much! We really appreciate it. I have a feeling it will be as we work together we will grow in what will work for us too. I guess we were just curious as to what will make it effective. Judging by what I have read it really comes down to the relationship that develops between the teachers working together. I’m really looking forward to it. Hope you are having a great time in the US too!
        Kind regards
        Kate Todd

  4. Dear Kathleen and Kelly,

    Your blog has been so useful for me to set up my own class blog.

    This is the second year that I have had the blog running, and the children are enjoying using it.

    I need to learn some new skills to fully utilise the features of the blog.

    Feel free to visit our blog and help make it better for us-
