This was the first full week I had the my classroom blog up and running. What an incredible experience it has been for my students and I. Each of my students each have their own blogging buddy which has encouraged them to become better writers. The students were also excited to have received random comments from grade 2 students from Bengough, Saskatchewan.
My students were eager to write back to them. Now I find myself trying to find some more time to give them a chance to not only communicate with their blogging buddies but to make general comments to others.
This classroom blog has also sparked an interest in geography. With clustermapsattached to my blog, my students are so excited to see when a new “dot” has appeared. We are learning about all the different countries in this world. So far we have had visitors from Australia, Italy, Thailand, Europe, United States and Canada. What a great way to teach a quick simple geography lesson.
Can’t wait to see what next week will bring 🙂
