Hi Rachel,

I love your blog! I am so impressed with the picture! It really makes the definition and the different measurements easy to understand. My favorite measurement is cups because I love to cook. Baking chocolate chip cookies is my favorite.

@pnaugle was a great clue to begin the search for information about Mrs. Paula Naugle. From her tweet account, I was able to find her blog site, Once on her blog page, I was able to find out that she teaches 4th grade math and social studies. She has been teaching for over 30 years. She uses all forms of technology in her teaching, which I found very refreshing. I have often wondered if teachers that have been teaching a while have been willing to adapt and incorporate technology into their classrooms and I can see that the answer to that is definitely "yes" in this situation. I look forward to following her class blogs and her personal blogs!

Hi Nicole! My name is Lisa and I am a student at the University of South Alabama in Mobile, Alabama. I really enjoyed reading your blog and the eight facts about yourself. It was really good for a first time blogger! I just started blogging myself, I think it is really fun. I am sure you will like it! I live close to the beach and fishing is one of my favorite things to do also. I have a son about your age and he loves to be near the water as well. I hope you enjoy blogging, maybe you will get a chance to look at my blog and send a comment. I would love to hear from you!

Hi Turuhira! My name is Lisa and I am a student at the University of South Alabama in Mobile,Alabama. I loved reading your story! My favorite part was that you said you had super strengths to make people happy! And, that you got it from your mum! I bet you are really good at making people smile, if you tell stories like this all the time! And, the costume is awesome!
I wish everyone wanted the super hero strength to make people happy! Wouldn't this world be a much greater place! I can't wait to read about your next adventure!

Hi! My name is Lisa May and I am a student at the University of South Alabama in Mobile, Alabama in the United States. As part of one of my classes, I was asked to listen to your podcast! It was awesome! You did a great job explaining the book, it made me want to read it! I think it is great that you are learning to do podcasts at your age. I just made my first podcast a few days ago! If you keep up the hard work and learning all you can about computers and technology, you will have an amazing future ahead of you! Good luck in school! If you get a chance visit my blog at

I was very impressed with the website of the Pt. England School in New Zealand. Their philosophy on education is exceptional! I was also amazed at the extend to which they are using technology within their classrooms and how long they have been using it. To think these young children were doing podcasts as far back as 2007 and I just heard of a podcast this semester! Room 16 is a year 6 class which means that the children are ages 9 and 10. Based on the picture, it would appear that there are 29 students in the class. It is taught by Mr. Kent Somerville. They have just started their first term on Feb 2. The only post to their blog was done by Mr. Somerville the first day of school, proclaiming "2011". I look forward to watching it's development as the year goes along, I looked at past Room 16 blog posts and they are amazing! I wish they were doing these things in the schools that my children attended.

  1. Hi Lisa,
    I am so glad that Dr. Strange has you doing such wonderful tech integration activities for this class. My students love the many comments students in his class leave them.

    Yes, there are veteran teachers who embrace using technology in their classrooms. This is my 35th year of teaching and I am having a blast teaching my students to use such tools as blogs, Glogster, Edmodo, and Skype to extended their learning.

    We would love to have you visit our classroom via a Skype call. Let me know if you are interested.
