I have just finished setting up my classroom blog! We had a discussion in class about what a blog is and how it can be used. Most students didn't really have any idea about what they are and what you use them for. So I showed them this one. (Not really much to show them though).
After much discussion with my class we decided that the best way we could incorporate this into what we are doing is to use it as a platform to showcase our amazing writing. So shortly following this we will be sharing our writing with the world via our blog.
We are very excited about it and fingers crossed the blog will fulfill its purpose - provide us and our writing a global audience.
