This year, I began a new project that many teachers have been afraid to bring into their classroom: blogging. I have learned from my experiences implementing blogging as an instructional tool and would love to share with you!
First, I set up my class blog on http://kidblog.org/. You just click on Create a Class, then make your account and you're ready. I added my students to the Users page with their own login names and passwords that correspond with their district IDs.
Then, I wrote the Blog Rules and published them for students to review and went over them as a class.
There are rules in life for everything, including blogging!
5. Have fun and share your ideas!
I made a Frequently Asked Questions page and went over it with the kids.
