Student & Parent Feedback
June 10, 2012
Ms. Pfafflin,
I wanted to let you know that I thought the Edublogs was a great way to get the students to think and write about a variety of subjects. I enjoyed learning so much just watching the videos with Amiel. I believe it helped that the students could see each others work and make comments. I hope next years class and parents enjoy this as much as I have. Good luck and have a great summer vacation.
