Hi Mr. Griffith! I like your website, I also like the part of the sponges, because if I miss one day or something like that, I could get on your website and do it. It`s great that you also have in your website the vocabulary word, is very good. I like the idea that you have the photos, because it is easier to understand.

Hey Mr. Griffith. I heard a podcast about voices of wisdom, and I like it a lot because it talks about God. It found to me really nice that Abraham did what God said, and later he got blessed. I think this podcast was really good because it shows many people to learn about God. At last, I also think i'll get blessed by God as Abraham did. http://www.learnoutloud.com/Podcast-Directory/Religion-and-Spirituality/Spirituality/Voices-of-Wisdom-Podcast/23674#plink

Hi Mr.Griffith I chose the podcast of astronomy and that we need to understand our earth and by looking at other planets we can undersand it. Also that we need to know more things about earth and space because we don`t know that much. Another thing was that the stars play an important role on our earth because we live thanks to a star. Also that our sun is one or the most important thing in our solar sistem because by studing the sun we can say that there are other galaxies besides ours because there are other stars so that is an important study. That was the podcast that most interest me.

Hi Mr. Griffith! Today I checked a podcast in youtube about trveling. The first link that appeared on the page was
called travel by 10. It had a very interesting introduction with lots of pictures. The pics where from the rredang island in Malasya.It had a beautiful beach and it talked about luxury resorts and hotels near in the island. The podcast was about 6 minutes long, not very entertaining because it should have given more info. about the activities to do. It talked about the traditins and what people wer in Malasya.

Hi Mr. Griffith! I just listened to a podcast about speeches in history. This one was given by Barack Obama about his family's history, mostly. He spoke of how his grandfather was a cook who had greater ambitions for his son and grandson. He also spoke of that in America you don't need great riches to become successful, to have votes counted, to not have taxes wasted,etc. That also parents have to live up to theur children's expectations. That his party (John Kerry's at the time,2004) was the best to turn tough choices to easier ones.

Hi Mr. Griffith!!! I listened to a podcast called Nastia Liukin. I found it in www.youtube.com/watch?v=f902x0p13NQ. The podcast is about Nastia Lukin, the gymnast who just won the 2008 Olympics. It talks about how Nastia works very hard every day in order to reach her goals. She trains 7 hours each day for five days a week! She also goes to a private school that respects her training hours. Nastia achieved all her dreams by working hard . She is a real role model for me, because I also practice gymnastics and I hope I can be a great gymnast like her.

I found this podcast really interesting because I learn that you can learn things from the internet. You may learn better things from the internet than from a person. The podcast was about a person teaching guitar from a simple podcast

Mr. Griffith.... the only podcast that I found that i liked, and that function was called learning guitar. well. obviously it is about how to play guitar. In my opinion he should have go slower so the person who is listening to him has time to put his fingers in the right position and see if it was well placed or not. It was an electric guitar; but really if I was listening to that podcast and learning how to play the guitar I wouldnt learn a bit!!

hi mister G!! how are you! I heard a podcast called the cat and venus. It is about this cat that falls in love with a human (a man). The cat goes to the Greek goddess Venus, and asks if venus can turn her into a human. Venus accepts with one contition. The contition was that the cat couldnt follow her cat reflexes, she had to act like a human. She accepts. She got married with the man. After a while, Venus got currious and decided to go see how she was doing. When she got to her house, she saw that she was chasing a rat. Then, Venus transformed her back into a cat.

    I have been a teacher for 19 years and have taught every grade from kindergarten through community collage.  I even taught in a prison.  I love to read, I like to write, but I am poor speller.  I have two daughters (Emma and Abby), and a wonderful wife. We live in Guatemala.
