What a accomplishment. That is a lot of views. I plan on posting next year even though i will be in seventh grade. I hope that you keep on having the blogspot for sixth grade language arts class. Way to go Mr. McGuire.

Congratulations! Are you having a party? Am I invited? ;-)

There is no need to thank us!! We should be thanking you. This incredible accomplishment is just a tribute to a wonderful job that you have done with your site. Great Job!!!! And once again, thank you for all the time and effort you put into this.

John,

By far, the majority of visitors are local-students and parents. In fact, that is what makes it worth it. I hope Kyle and the KW's post next year as a 7th graders.

The fact that parents, like Kim check in motivates me to share the great things students are doing in Reading Workshop.

However, it seems like slowly but surely, more and more repeat visitors are showing up from all over the U.S. and the World.

Wow Mr McGuire I think that their was alot of views too. I think that it was a good idea to have a blog like this I think this because it can tell you good info. and also it tells you what assignments are and when they are due.Do you think when you have the 5th graders come here as 6th graders will you make a new blog or will you not have one???? I think that you should have one so that when I am in the 7th grade I can see what the blog looks like so that I can still type. You can tell that I love typing on the blog. I like to do because I can learn and see what the comments where and also that I can type.

Man I thought this was a small website just for us students and parents to check every now and then. I guess I was wrong, for a school website to get 10,000 views is amazing. Nice job and this is an awesome blog.
