Did You Know?

Did you know I wrote this post last year and now I get to write it again?

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 Education Blog” on the Canadian Blog Awards 2007 website?

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

What about you?

Your sure right! He has my vote.

I most definitely think that he is a truly worthy nominee (and hopefully future victor)!

I remember before I ever met Mr. K at school, I had only heard of his class and it's basis around the blog, which honestly deterred my involvement in his class at first. But now that I've experienced how truly educational blogging can be for almost two years, thanks to Mr. K, I know that I probably wouldn't have grown as much as I have if I had not been obligated to contribute towards the blog. He really is an inspiration. I agree with Lani and GreyM when I say that he's an extremely deserving candidate.
