Here in Sydney it is nearing the end of Sunday November 11. In other parts of the world this same day is just beginning. November 11 is a special day celebrated all around the world. Write and tell us all about how you, your school or your community celebrate this special day. What, who and why do you remember?
This is a common question that I hear at The Blogger’s Cafe.
Imagine this. You are a 12 year old student who has been blogging for a couple of years, you have received lots of visits and quite a few comments. You’ve been busy at school and don’t seem to find time to blog anymore. What will happen when you go to high school? You will be even busier. What will happen to your blog then?
Your teacher has challenged you to blog more often. The problem you have is that you just don’t know what to write about that will be interesting to others and show something that is unique about you.
How do you decide what to write about? What has worked best for you? How do you get your visitors to leave a comment rather than just flit past your blog on the way to somewhere else?
Please share your ideas, we will all be happy to hear from you.
The Blogger’s Cafe has recently welcomed some new members. You will find them in the blogroll to the left. Mrs McKelvey’s Blogging’ Frogs are a Year 3 class in San Diego who have written an excellent post about shadows. Please visit them and leave them a comment.
Mrs Cliff’s Year 5 class have also be thinking about shadows. If you scroll down their blog a little way you will find it.
My name is Mrs Thomas and I am the teacher who looks after this blog. I also run a lunchtime group at my school in Sydney, Australia called The Blogger’s Cafe. If you have any questions at all just ask!
I also have a request. If you find any broken links please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by at the cafe.
The 2012 Olympic Games are beginning soon. The Olympics are usually a fantastic event that brings people from all over the world together. This year they are in London. Have the Olympics been held in the United Kingdom before?
Can you find out if there has been an Olympics held in your country? Have the Olympics been held in every continent? If not, I wonder why not?
Let me know what you think. You will find the official Olympic site here
This picture made in tagxedo shows your responses to our recent post Milkshakes or Muffins. Can you see your preferred cafe food in the apple? I wonder what our apple would look like if you wrote about your favourite fruit? What fruit is most popular in your class? Why not have a discussion and let me know.
The Blogger’s Cafe is up and running again in 2012. Here in Australia we have begun our school year and we need your help please. The aim of The Blogger’s Cafe is to be a place that you and your class can stop by, leave a comment on a current post, read what others have to say and share in the life of the cafe. You might also use it to follow links to other classes so it is important that our links are up to date. Please check on your class link. If there are any problems please leave a comment so I can fix it. If your class does not appear in our blogroll and you’d like it to please leave details on our Join Our Cafe page.
All this talk about the cafe is making me hungry because, to me, cafe equals yummy things to eat! When I visit a real cafe the thing I like to order most is a milkshake. Usually vanilla but sometimes caramel. Do you have a favourite cafe food or drink? Why do you like it?
Please comment and let us know…
Here are the results of our recent survey about playground games. Have a look at the graphs and see how visitors to the cafe responded. Most respondents were from Australia, followed by the USA. Please leave a comment about the survey results.
All of us here at the cafe have one thing in common – we go to school!
What are the most popular games in your playground? Do you play inside or outside? Do games come and go in popularity? Do you have an all time favourite game that you keep coming back to? Are you too old for playground games?
Please answer this survey and we will get a global picture of the global playground! You are welcome to leave a comment as well.
