Going Global

Quad Blogging begins soon...... I am so excited to be part of this global connection -
quad blogging

Quad Blogging is where four classes spend time learning about different classes from around the world through their blogs.

Classes take it in turns to have their classroom in the spotlight for a week. During that time the other three classes visit and leave comments.

Our Quad Blogging buddies are from the U.K and the U.S.A
