I really enjoyed viewing the blog created by the 2KM class of Australia. To find out more about the exciting things happening in Mrs. McGeady's class, click on the following link: 2KM @ Leopold Primary School

My comment to the 2KM class:

Dear 2KM,

I am a student from the University of South Alabama and I am majoring in Elementary Education. I absolutely love the idea of Reading Day! The video used to launch the Reading Day festivities was amazing. I remember so vividly participating in reading fairs and book reports as an elementary student, but I do not remember doing anything as exciting as your class has done. Mrs. McGeady, your students seem so excited about learning and they seem to have LOTS of fun doing so. I applaud both you and your students; you all are definitely a 21st century classroom.

How do you find time to keep current with the latest technology? I was very impressed with the activities chosen such as: making origami art on the iPod Touch, using Wordle, and reading books on the IWB. I cannot wait until your next school term begins. I am now going to add your class blog to my PLN (Personal Learning Network). I believe that your class has lots of innovative ideas that I can use as a future teacher. Well done 2KM, your class has really set the bar for future sites that I will visit. Thank you for sharing!

  1. Dear Gina,

    Thank you again for taking the time to visit the 2KM blog and leaving such a terrific comment.

    I am sure your passion for teaching will take you a long way. I noticed you mentioned in your bio you would like to teach abroad. You will have to let us know if you ever get to Australia!

    I continue to be impressed by the quality and relevance of Dr Strange's course. You're very lucky! It is far from the pre-teacher training I had!

    Keep up your excellent work. Your blog is looking fantastic!

    Best wishes,
    Kathleen McGeady
