Don't worry, the ConKids blog is still alive and well, but I'm happy to announce the launching of my new classroom website http://sites.google.com/site/conkids/
You can bookmark the site (recommended) or you can navigate to it through the Edina Public Schools website http://www.edina.k12.mn.us/index.html
From there click on Schools (drop down menu)>Creek Valley>Classrooms (on the left hand side of the page)>Grade 5>Classroom Website (under Mr. Alexander Converse) .
My hope is that parents and students will use this new site to get information they need (homework updates, newsletters, sign ups, useful websites, etc.). I'm also hoping to have photos of classroom activities as well as student work available soon.
ConKids blog will now be more of a traditional blog, with posts ranging from thoughts on issues we're discussing in class to just fun, random things I find and want to share with a larger audience.
I can't believe summer is already almost over, but I'm excited for a new school year with a new batch of fifth graders!
