Everybody in his class are awesome! We are also loyal. Mr. Tillmann is the best homeroom teacher in the world! Mr. Tillmann's class strives to always be respectful. Mr. Tillmann wears a different tie every single day of the school year -- check it out! We get along.

A Message from Mrs. Maurer's fifth graders

Unicorns are pretty and they're wandering around our school. Meow mix is yummy (some of us eat it, apparently.) and also Kibbles 'n Bits. "Meow" everyone! Some people in this school may have pet allergies, but some don't. Some even have asthma and pet allergies so they should not eat Meow Mix.
Rainbows are colorful and delicious. Skittles are made from rainbows.

A Message from Mrs. Hoffman's fifth graders

Don't always believe what you find on the world wide web. We have lots of ideas about who is going to win the Super Bowl, mostly about the Steelers. Packers will win! Guess we'll have to watch the game to find out.

Hockey Rocks!

A Message from Mr. Bouta's fifth graders

Mr. Bouta is tall. Everything on the web is not true. Be careful! We've even seen that somethings are definitely not true. The Packers are going to the Super Bowl. The Steelers are going to win though. Some of us like the Steelers more, but not everyone. Power bunny rocks! The Wild are going to the Stanley Cup finals.

Thing 25: Bloggers' toolkit

Today I added a mini search engine widget, a visual dictionary, places to see before you die (It will motivate ME to come back ;-), and a Ben Franklin quote widget. I already spend too much time on Facebook and am not interested in creating another social networking piece here so I skipped many of the friend/networking widgets. I am intrigued by the photo idea and would love to do this for book covers, but am a little stymied as to a dependably appropriate source of pictures. I spent well over an hour experimenting with this (it was fun -- no complaints!)
