Did You Know?


Did you know I can see your classroom from two windows?!

My first window is your blog. I am excited by what I see and hear! I never cease to be amazed by the quality and sophistication of your scribes; you constantly achieve new heights in illustrating and annotating your scribes. More than that I am so impressed when you celebrate each others’ learning, when you are creative, and when you critically reflect upon your learning in your BOBs.

Did you know Mr. K’s blog is my second window? I admire and respect what I see and hear here too! Did you know that Mr. K celebrates your learning on his blog? that he reflects upon what best helped you to learn and why? that he unselfishly shares all he knows with those who read his blog? that he learns from the conversations on his blog? that he writes with passion and is creative? and that he commits many random acts of kindness by honoring other teachers’ accomplishments in his posts? Did you know all he expects of you, he shares those same expectations for himself?

Did you know that because of all that and more, Mr. K.’s blog has been nominated for “Best Teacher Blog 2006” on the Edublog Awards website?

I just happen to think that no one deserves this honor more than Mr. K.

What about you?

It's true when lani says all those good things about Mr. K.

Mr. K, probably accidentally, showed me his personal blog. I read about the tools he shares with us in class, and how that helps us learn. He also does honour the accomplishments of others, and that's sooo cool! We all know how easy it is to be selfish.

Lani, is there anything we can do for Mr. K regarding this contest? Thanks!

Hi Christian,

I think that whatever all of you come with would be just perfect!!

Thanks. The nomination is reward enough. To be honest, if anyone deserves an award it's you guys. ;-)

WOOHOO! Go Mr.K! Christian, you can vote for Mr.K's blog if you go to the site Lani linked in the post. Mr.K, I was looking at your blog, I'm just amazed how much work you put into teaching, learning how to teach, and teaching how to teach. :) It makes me want to try my best too... And thank you Lani for posting this!

Wooow! I think Christian and Suzanne said what I wanted to say... Lani's post made me realize how lucky we are to Mr. K.

He makes sure that we're on top of things, he knows when we're not ready for our tests, and he never fails to teach us more than what we need to know. I know that I speak for a lot of us when I say, we always leave that math class with our brains full of knowledge. There's nothing like math first thing in the morning!

Thanks Mr. K, for making us go the extra mile and keeping us inspired. GOOD LUCK =) And thanks to Lani, for posting this up.
