About Room 230

Published by

Greetings from Bangkok! My name is Miss B and I am a Gr.5 teacher at I.S.B (International School Bangkok).  Our Gr.5 class consists of 20 students who love technology and we are keen to use technology to deepen and extend our learning beyond the walls of our classroom.  We are excited to learn about new tools and connecting with others. Some of us are fairly new to blogging, and some of us are not.  We will be communicating with the world what we are learning and fully encourage commenting on our blog. We hope you visit us and share with us often.

Yours in learning,

Miss B. and her wonderful Gr.5 students

Listen to a voice thread a few of our students put together that gives you a glimpse into our school life.

    We saw your blog is entered in the blog challenge. Our class is trying to connect with students around the world? Are you interested in doing a book club with us? Our blog address is:

    We have received a comment from Edward- thankyou. Hope you are enjoying the blogging challenge. Isn’t wonderful to learn about what other students are doing across the globe.

    Hi Mrs. B and Class,
    I am from the United States and was wondering if you could let me know what life is like in Thailand. I’ve never been outside the country, but love to travel. Good luck with your blog!

    Hi Alice,
    Thanks for visiting us 5th graders. In Thailand, this time of year, it rains fairly frequently, mostly in the evening. This is because it’s so hot and humid out! The mosquitoes are present, but are REALLY visible when it is the dry season–December, January mostly. What other kinds of questions do you have for us?

    Hello classroom bloggers!

    We are a Grade 5 class from Hong Kong and we’re called the 5E Eagles. We’ve just created a links section on our Grade 5 class blog called “Our Global Community” :)

    We’re writing you today because we like your blog(s) and so we’ve added you to our Global Community list. We’ve either found you through Twitter, The EduBlog Challenge or because you’re already a contact of Ms. Cahusac.

    Come and check us out or look at some of the other classes which are listed.

    Hello Miss B and Room 227,
    We are a class of 22 Grade 5 & 6 students from Victoria, Australia, and we have enjoyed having a read of your blogs. We’d like to add your class blog to our blogroll, if that’s OK, and we’d love you to visit our blogs too. If you have any questions about life in Australia, then we’d be happy to answer them. We are certainly interested in learning more about life in Thailand.
    Mr B and 5/6B students

    Hello Miss B!
    I am in grade 6 and I am in a 6/7 split! Our school is on Vancouver Island BC, Canada. We just started our school year in September. My class has just started to work on our web 2.0 skills and we have just started to learn how to blog. We are looking forward to getting our own blogs and increasing our computer knowlage. We have 28 students in our class and we work on the computers almost every day! We have had our class blog, the Ripple Effect, for at least 2 weeks. How long have you been blogging for?

    Hi Miss B.
    I’m in a 6/7 class in British Columbia, Canada. We have 28 students in our class and we too, love technology. We entered the world of blogging in September. We are very excited to learn about new tools and connecting with others, too. We just started working on our web 2.0 skills but a lot of us were already familiar with many different types of technology. When did your students start your school year?

    G’day Miss B and class,

    Those students taking part in the student blogging challenge may have noticed some comments from teachers recently. One of your students, Haley, has had some comments but I don’t think she has approved them yet. I am wondering if you could check this please?

    Thank you very much! The changes have been made.

    We have awarded your blog a BLOGGING AWARD! Please see our recent post in the Eagle Nest for instructions. It is not your turn to pass along the award to 10 blogs of your choice!

    I can not wait until the scavenger hunt on your blog!!!!

    Hi Miss B and students of Room 230!
    Thanks for visiting our class blog today, and special thanks to Aqsa, Olivia, Morgan and Daiki for leaving comments on some of our posts. We have since visited some of your student blogs, but when we tried to leave comments we couldn’t (because it said we had to log in, but we don’t have WordPress logins!) If you are able to change this in your blog settings then we would love to post comments!
    It looks like you are all doing some fantastic things in your class, and we hope you have a great school year!

    Mr B & students of 5/6B

    Hi Mr.B! Thank you for letting me know about your troubles writing comments. I will get this fixed right away! I know our students are looking forward to
    hearing back! Take care,
    Miss B and the students of Room 230.

    Dear Teacher
    Sorry that I didn’t comment on the correct post, for this comment-I have a reason: My mom’s computer, or something else made the word study and the whole Home page not show up! Not even the widgets!
    Now For The Comment:
    Dear Ms.B,
    I was surprised to hear that in your child life, in school, they gave you a random selection of words, to learn, but, it was acctualy like a memory game!
    Nico’s words were long, but in a pattern,and not like your childhood. Some of his words I did not understand, but I figured it out, with the patterns, in the words I did know.
    In the post, it said that it was an individual thing, but like in the photos, it is not 100% individual!

    Your Student,

    Hello to all of you! I am visiting you through the link on the Blogging Challenge site. You have a nice looking blog!
    It sounds like you study interesting things at your school. At our school, we have found that blogging can be a wonderful way to learn and practice what we’ve learned. It’s also a great way to learn about others. So – nice to meet you! I’m glad you’ve joined the Blogging Challenge, too.

    Ms. Tatiana

    Miss B and the Grade 5s,

    Hello from Memphis, TN, USA. My name is Mrs. B and I have a class of 3rd graders who also love technology. We found your blog through the Student Blogging Challenge. I have several international students and I am looking forward to connecting to students around the world and learning about their countries. Stop by our class blog and check us out. We would love to learn more about your country.

    Hi, im a 5th grade student in International school of Beijing! It is also ISB . I have just finished my water unit and have spotted things about bottled water on the student’s website. Feel free to comment on my article on acid rain at .

    Hi, I’m a fifth grader in ISB (Beijing). It is also called ISB! Our class finished our water unit. Now I realized that we should save our water.
    For my water issues around the world, I chose that there was a biggest tsunami ever in Tuvalu’s history.

    To read more about it, go to and download the newspaper in the homepage.
