While I am no longer nervous about wondering if I could possibly come up with something to say for 31 days in a row that doesn't mean that I walk into this with a blase attitude. It is still a HUGE thing to try to accomplish. The experience of successful years and the tremendous community simply wrap me like a soft, fuzzy, security blanket.
The real news of the day is that my class is posting slices on their blogs! You should have seen them this morning. Everyone was silently clicking away at their keys. Some chatter started once they published as they were then remembering how to (with a cheat sheet) post their URL in the comments of the class blog using HTML to create a hyperlink. I am also asking them to put the URL into a spreadsheet for tracking. The spreadsheet has additional tabs for tracking their comments by URL. It was time for snack and recess and nearly the entire class blew off snack to keep helping one another. It was awesome!
Now we wait for the rest of the classes to wake up, write, and post, so we can spread the comment love.
