Welcome to our blog! We are a 3rd grade classroom with 27 students at Stafford Primary School in West Linn, Oregon. Oregon is in the Pacific Northwest in the USA. Our community is a suburb of the city of Portland in the northwestern region of the state. We are situated in the Willamette Valley, which is a landscape of farm lands and rolling hills covered with fir trees along the Willamette River. The Pacific Ocean and the Coast Mountain Range are to our west, and Mt. Hood and the Cascade Mountain Range are to the east. To the north is the the Columbia Gorge where the Columbia River is the border between Oregon and the state of Washington.
We use our blog to share our learning and to collaborate with other classes globally. Like all kids we have so many different interests. We are excited to explore how technology supports our learning in new and engaging ways. We have also experienced how it can bring us closer together as people in our world.
We want to participate in theThe Blogging Challenge this year! We hope to connect with other students around the world. We’d like to share our learning and to gain new friendships.
