|I sent my email to you after reading your
Wed. Jan. 13th one about not being available to enter any work until Mon.
afternoon/evening. Well...I had my computer lab time @1:45pm (MST) and the children
were busy working on their assignment, when I decided for a lark to see how the sight was
coming along. Well! What to my wondering eyes should I see? We closed down our work and
immediately went to the sight! You could hear the cries of excitment all over the school!
Thank you so much for setting this up! The joy and excitment of the children was so
rewarding! Many of them copied down the site so that they could look at and show it
at home. This was so much fun! Now I'm pushing for a scanner to make it even more
fantastic! Please keep me in mind if you are doing another project.
St. Rita School, Calgary, Canada
I was bragging to my principal about your great project (and my kids'wonderful
writing), and so he sat down at his computer and read our page. When the kids were at
recess, he came into the classroom and wrote a note on the board to them. Their little
faces just glowed when they read what a great job HE thought they did with their writing!
They loved getting the e-mails from your students, too..."author fan mail!!"
Thanks again for including us!
It's Sunday and I am running around trying to get ready for my
daughter's birthday party and decided to try your site and see if our page was up.
"And what to my wondering eyes" should appear but our page!!!! I love the
music you added. Gilligan's Island was one of my favorite shows as a child. I don't know
the name of the actual song but the sound affects are soooo cool!! I can't wait
until Monday and I can show the class. Even sooner than that, when company comes I will be
showing off. Thanks so much for allowing us to be part of your project. It was so
rewarding to see the page done.
I wish to thank you for all of your hard work!!! My students were
so excited and really happy to see their work on the internet! This was my first project
and I hope that I can participate again in one of your creative works. Thanks so much for
including Saint Angela Hall Academy in your project. What is your next project?
Hi Frosty Reader Participants!
My class has totally enjoyed this project! This is our first
Internet activity and it was well worth the time and effort! We have received several
e-mails from parents telling us how much they, their families across the country, and even
their co-workers have loved reading our stories. Please continue to start wonderful
projects like this! It makes reading and writing so meaningful!
