Tool #1 Using a Blog in the Classroom

Creating a blog was VERY easy. I have already started using the blog as a way for my students, parents, and the whole school to keep up with our Meadow Wood Purple Martin nest in our houses. This was a second grade project and the blog has allowed me a place to post updates as well as photos and videos of the birds that the children have taken. In addition, parents and students from previous years can see the beautiful birds and our first nest! I think I could also use a blog for a homework as well as for posting pictures and information about what is occurring in class. Parents could easily look on the blog to get information!

  1. Your blog about the birds sounds like a fun learning spot. Would you put a link to it up on this blog so we can all visit it. One way would be to use a side bar gadget for links.

    And your Voki is a very interesting character...I look forward to the adventures it may take us on!
