  1. My class would like to participate in student blogging . I filled out the google from. Please let me know what else I can do. Thank you

    • Hi Kristy,
      The October 2016 challenge has just finished. THe next one will start in March 2017. There will be a new form to fill in then. But feel free to look at the activities we have just completed and have a go at some of them in your classroom.

  2. I have submitted the form for our class. However, because we are in Western Australia, we do not return from school holidays until 11 October. Is that going to be a problem?

    • Hi Lynn,
      That’s quite OK. The first week will be introducing themselves. The second week will be looking at their state, country and introducing that so they will be able to do those two things fairly easily. As the teacher, you decide which activities each week they have to do or can choose from. There is always a choice.
