Look what was in my mailbox this morning!
The package was from BB, a student blogging buddy of mine in Australia! I met BB about a year ago when she was a student in Mrs. Morris’s 2KM class. At that time, she had just earned her own student blog and was amazing me with her blog posts! She also has left many quality comments on our Bulldog Readers Blog!
I have learned so much from her and her teachers in the past year. Now she is in 3rd grade and still maintains her own fantastic blog. You can visit it here. If you would like to visit Mrs. Morris’s blog, which she writes with Miss Jordan, click here!
A few weeks ago, her mom, AA and I exchanged addresses. I wanted to send BB a package from Seattle and BB wanted to send one to me! Shh!!! BB doesn’t know there is a package in the mail to her too!
I loved opening the package this morning! Of course, a blogger can’t just open a package, you have to photograph the entire process!
BB also wrote a note in cursive! She carefully selected the Australian goodies herself.
I especially love the handpainted aboriginal art she sent!
Look how carefully this turtle was painted. Everything is done is tiny dots!
I also love the book, Wombat’s Secret and look forward to reading it to my library students when we return to school in the fall.
Instead of making am movie of all of the Australian goodies, I decided I would make a Photosynth instead. This is a brand new process to me, in fact, this photosynth is my first experiment! I learned about MS Photosynth from Mrs. Beal who writes Bonding through Blogging out of Cape Town, South Africa. I thought I would give this technology a try.
