Tom our Traveling Teddy from Germany Spends a Relaxing Weekend with Ben at his house.

Congratulations Ben on making your own Smilebox about Tom’s visit to your home.

Ben I love how you are embracing the Web 2.0 tools that help us in the classroom. I might have to get you to teach the rest of the grade about Smilebox later this week. To all our global friends I hope you enjoy Ben’s smile box.

    Well it was not easy!
    First I had to download a smilebox program.
    Then I had to create a account.
    Then using the smilebox program I made the smilebox and sent it to Mrs Joyce.
    It was the opposite of easy making it!!
    PS. I would still be able to show you how to make it though!!

    Wow Ben this smilebox is amazing. I can’t believe that it is that simple. I am going to make one very soon on Taiwan’s blog photos just as a practice. It looks like Tom had a very relaxing time when he was at your house. When you went to the dam I can’t believe Tom saw his first echidna in the wild. Tom must of been really exited to see the echidna. It is great that you are using the resources around you Ben. Hopefully mum will let me make an account so I can make one on Taiwan’s blog photos of kanga. πŸ™‚

      Great idea on doing a smilebox on taiwans blog!

    What a fantastic Smilebox , Ben. Maybe you can show me how to make one when I am next in your classroom. Tom was very lucky to see an echidna in the wild.

    Wow! In Taiwan we can not see wild animals very often, to us it’s a experience that happens only once in a blue moon.

    Wow Ben, very impressive. You really know how to make a smilebox. The descriptions were smart thought of! Maybe you should start making the smileboxes for Mrs Joyce… πŸ™‚ Tom is so lucky to look at AFL for the first time with you Ben. Im sure it was heart breaking for Tom that he had to leave when he had so much fun with you. This is the best smilebox I have seen so far! Tom would have been of honoured by you because he saw a real life echinda! They are fascinating creatures! GOOD JOB!! πŸ˜€
