Congratulations on the first post for 2009/10 classroom! Wow! Imagine having to learn all 50 states and remember them! Impossible surely!

We'd also like to thank Jane for her comment the first we've received from your school this year! (Well this new teaching year, its only half way through the year in New Zealand both chronologically and in terms of the school year - we don't finish until December!

I'd like to apologise for suggesting that you have a 'Jane' in the classroom - I had a brain explosion here in NZ when I thought your students had left their first comment! Its not your room at all!

Jean-Michael - isnt there an easy way to remember the states of the USA like a rhyme or something or do you just have to remember them all?
