A Wrap Up of Our Year In Student Blogging

This has been a very successful year for our student blogs.  This is the first year that we opened our blogs up to the community, state and nation.  It is also the first time that I have made sure to include more technology and web 2.0 tools into our blog posts.

Here is a recap of our year:

#1 - September- "All About Me"  Students wrote interesting facts about themselves.
#2 - October - Students created a Thinglink to show different places that they have been.This post tied into our unit on map skills in social studies.

#3 - November - Our students used iPads and Educreations to make video tutorials.

#4 - January - Students made New Year's Resolutions.

#5 - February/March We made eBooks during RTI time.

#7 - April / May Students created a survey using Google Forms.  We sent our surveys to Middle School students but also created a survey for our blogs.

A special thank you to all of my friends and colleagues that took the time to comment on our students' blogs through out the year.  I'm proud of my students and all that they have put into their blogs. Next year should be even better!
