        G’day Hudson,
        You have caught Steven’s dreadful punctuating disease, perhaps you both need a trip to the grammar doctor for some treatment. Or you could do a proof read before you send your comment.What would you prefer?
        Cheers Ellen

        Hello Steven, I’m glad you are thinking carefully about what to write. Can you also check that you are punctuating correctly before you send. I’m sure Hudson would love to read his mail accurately don’t you.

        Ti kanis Steven I will be so angry. What will you think if there was no ipad tv iPod but
        just olden days stuff. What will you do if there was no cars and no vehicles. What if
        you only spears and only making you own fire. What if you had no parents only your
        self too Steven?

    HI Ellen
    I think the useful learning sites are cool because most people in the world don’t know many sites so now that you’ve got the blog people that don’t know can now know more sites. Are you going to be adding more useful learning sites.

    nice regards Finn.

      Good to see you writing Tate,
      I noticed you were concentrating on the typing tutor. Have you noticed your speed increasing at all? You can always bookmark this at home and go on when you have a few moments.
      What did you think of your iMovie?

      Hi Hudson’s sister,
      Thanks for testing Hudson, I guess you are learning lots too. Are you proud of the way Hudson is learning his facts. Can you see him getting stronger? Do you have a favourite set of tables? They can be tricky indeed. Keep challenging the lad.
      Cheers Ellen
