As you all may know we have been nominated for the Edublog Awards 2009. We are very honoured because the blogs that have been nominated with us  were just  FANTASTIC! We would like to congratulate the winners for their great job. Even though we haven’t won, we are extremely happy for having taking part in the awards and also because we haven’t done that bad in the final results. We are in position 6th. A big thank to all those who have supported us: teachers, students, parents, friends and especially to Eduardo Peirano (@emapey) and Lorena Zanola (@enpatagoniasur) for their great motivation and hard work.

We are very honoured because we have been nominated for the best class blog in the Edublog Awards 2009.

There are lots of excellent blogs nominated with us. You may have a look at all of them here. Select your favorite class blog from the list  and click Vote OR scroll down the page to check out all blogs nominated in this category!

A big thank to all those who have motivated us to start and continue with this blog, and especially to Eduardo Peirano (@emapey), who was the person who nominated us for the contest. Classes have ended here in Argentina so we will continue working in this blog with the students in March, after a reinvigorating summer holiday. We all deserve it!

Hello again my dear students! This week in class we have been talking about dreams, nightmares, daydreaming. Today we have seen two scenes from the film “The Unborn” and we have discussed about nightmares. If you are curious about the film, here you can see the trailer. If you happen to watch the movie, please tell us your opinion.

So today we will have a new contest. This time please tell us one of your dreams. It can be funny, scary, strange, or just a dream you like. Next week we will vote on the best dream. You can use these questions as a guide…

1) Where were you? Describe the place.

2) What did you see?

3) What did you do?

4) What happened next?

5) How did you feel?

Looking forward to your dreams…

“We only know the things that we tame, said the fox. People no longer have the time to know anything. They buy things already made for peddlers. But since there are no peddlers of friends, they no longer have friends. If you want a friend, tame me!
Goodbye, said the fox. Here’s my secret; it’s very simple: we see well only with the heart. The essential is invisible to the eyes.” (The Little Prince by Saint Exupéry)

Hello my dear students! As you all know, in class we have been talking about friendship, so today I have a proposal for all of you. Let’s share funny  anecdotes with our friends. Why don’t you leave in the comment section a retelling of  the funniest anecdote you have with one or some of your friends? It would be a good idea, if you can also share how and when you met them, what you often do with them and whatever comes to your mind. On Tuesday we can vote on the FUNNIEST ANECDOTE! Let’s see who the winner is.

Well, and now let’s finish with a song about friendship. It’s a karaoke song so why don’t we sing along? Stand by me (quedate a mi lado) by Timon and Pumba:
