Kids Are Bloggers Too!
Students at Proctor School have begun blogging.  The students are very excited to be sharing their writing digitally and to a wider audience.  We looked at the cluster map on my blog and discovered that blogs are read all around the world.  Fasten your seat belt and take a journey with these young bloggers.
Comments are always welcome.

You might have noticed a new page listed at the top of my blog titled Student Blogs. We are using the site Kidblog.  Students have their own blog pages associated with their classroom.    As blogging was introduced, we had a discussion about rules for blogging.  Students signed a contract.(see below)  We talked about writing thoughtful blog posts and comments that add new information.  At times, classes will be using this as a way to post written assignments.  No more carrying notebooks back and forth. 

It has been a lot of fun reading original poems and stories.
Take some time and check out their blogs. 

"Kidblog is built by teachers, for teachers, so students can get the most out of the writing process. Our mission is to empower teachers to embrace the benefits of the coming digital revolution in education. As students become creators - not just consumers - of information, we recognize the crucial role of teachers as discussion moderators and content curators in the classroom. With Kidblog, teachers monitor and control all activity within their classroom blogging community."

    I've used Kidblog for two years in my 1st grade classroom. The children love it and I love watching them becoming digital citizens!
