    I am obsessed with blogger and updating my site. This is the first group of students I've ever had that checks the website all the time at home, so they've really motivated me to keep up with my site more this year.

    Here's my class website: http://ladybugsclass.blogspot.com/

    And here's my teacher blog within the website (this is new for me!): http://ladybugsclass-teacherfiles.blogspot.com/

    I would love to see your sites if you are interested in sharing. I hope you are all having a very happy holiday season!

    I started off by updating every day... lately, we've been updating as a class once/week, and then I'll update it when something cool is going on in class. My site is www.misterfleming.com

    monsieurteacher--I love your site! I like how your students post classroom happenings too, that's so great.

    TeachingTy--I use blogger which is free and why I used it in the first place. I was tired of paying yearly subscriptions.

    I wouldn't consider mine to be a blog, but I do use to update parents with what is going on in our classroom. My husband just got me a Sony Handicam and I am hoping it will make adding videos to my website a little bit easier.

    TeachingTy, mine was actually an edublogs site. It's free, but you pay to get ads removed. Someone on AtoZ actually won a subscription and was very generous and gave it to me, so now I have a free membership. I did pay for the domain name, just because I felt parents would be more likely to check out the site with a more memorable URL.

    Thank you! I have had my website since 2004. It use to be called Leaping Into 2nd Grade as I was teaching 2nd grade when I started it. I still have a few resources from when I taught 2nd grade, but most of it has been switched to 5th grade. Thanks again!

    I really enjoyed your website and got some great organizational ideas. I love your New Year poster. I will do this with my class first thing on Monday morning. They will love it. Thanks for sharing all of your great ideas!

    Hey, here's mine. http://msyisclass.com/

    Ladybug, that's awesome that your class really utilizes your website on a regular basis. That's been a dream of mine for a while. I've even been toying with the idea of moving up a couple grade levels to get more student involvement.

    Ms. Yi, I really like the format of your site. It is adorable and very user-friendly! I think I just lucked out with my class this year. I taught the same grade level last year, but didn't have the same amount of participation at home. It is really nice though...it makes me want to keep updating since I know the kids and their families use it a lot. It's nice to have extra communication time with them beyond school.

    Thanks for sharing your site! :)

    Yes, my graphics came from Lettering Delights and PC crafter. The link to your site wouldn't work for me...
