  1. Dear Mrs. W,
    I have completed week 6 activities. These activities helped me learn and see how much technology I use in my everyday life. This was possible because of Mia’s blog “http://raindropdream.weebly.com/home/week-5-lets-talk-school”

  2. Dear Ms. W,

    I completed week 6 and I really enjoyed looking at other peoples wonderful blogs. I left a comment on Mai and Jueun posts. I thought that their blogs were interesting and I got to relate with them.

  4. Hello Ms. W,

    This week by being one of the students on the list, I noticed quite a lot. Many people like to comment about their own stories and then ask questions to learn more, which is really nice. Their questions typically regarded my travels, so they were fun to answer and talk about, but mostly, I loved to hear people’s stories. It’s so great to hear from people with similar experiences! Thanks for choosing me to be on the list!

    Regards,

    Caleb

  5. Hello Ms. W,
    I have taken the time to answer to most of my comments, I couldn’t answer all of them because 236 comments is a lot.
    Thank you,

    This week’s blog posts were truly insightful, especially the Gaia Theory blog. The post, the aesthetics, and the experience itself were remarkably inspiring to make my blog better.

  7. Dear Ms. W,

    I have finished my week 6 assignment. I really enjoyed meeting new people and being able to communicate with them. I think the Grade 7’s 100-word challenge was great and allowed a lot of creativity to happen.

  26. Dear Miss. W,

    According to this activity, I have noticed that a lot of people like to talk about life, more specifically about their own life, what they want to do in the future, what they do at school and what are their hobbies. I think it’s good because people will take example on them.

    Best regards,

    Kebir

  30. Hi Ms. W,
    I noticed a lot of these blog posts thought about things like the structure, punctuation, whether it was entertaining or not, whether it had sophisticated language or not, most of them were succinct and concise.

    Have a nice day,
    Ruqayya.

  31. Dear Ms. W,

  35. Hello Miss W
    Reading and commenting on other peoples posts actually helped me learn a bunch of things. Like Mikes post, I had no idea that the Gaia hypothesis was a thing. I suggest it to anyone who is very interested in science, or you can check out my blog:
