436 visits is a big day for any blog – quite amazing really! Glad people are visiting, but would love to know what brought them here. I might never know! I guess that’s what blogging is about – it’s a bit of a mystery.

Pingback: 2010 in review | Nina’s Arena-Teaching & Learning in the Australian primary classroom
I started this blog for PD and wasn’t sure what it would teach me. I’ve learnt so much, enjoy sharing and have made many connections with others, even though not face to face.
I’m glad you’re giving Interactive Writing a go. It’s the most under recognised strategy, rarely written about and yet I feel it’s one of the best. I know that this strategy is being used in senior grades at my school. The collaborative nature of this strategy whether teacher or student led supports all learners. Please let me know if this strategy is helping your Preps. You might like to contribute a post here.
The teacher next to me is using this strategy now and is finding her student’s independent writing is soaring. She’s really excited.
I see myself as a learner along side my Preps. We’ve had a great term but we’re looking forward to the break.
Why do I read your blog (and I do on a regular basis), because like you I teach prep (this is my second year of teaching prep). Reading your blog encourages me to reflect on my teaching practice and hopefully improve what I am doing. I have also started using interactive writing since reading your blog, and it works so well for preps.
Thank you for the time and effort you put into your blog. You are an inspiration!
I’m pleased people are reading my blog. I’d still write if the numbers were smaller. I write to reflect and reflect to write and I enjoy writing. I have quite a readership base now and I think that shows just how strong this form of media is. Thanks for commenting.
I think it’s a bit like teachable moments. They come , they go. Life goes on. There must be something you’re doing right plus the stars align from time to time.
