Looking for Some Good Reading?

Things are beginning to hop on our student blogs. It takes a while to learn (and in some cases, relearn) digital citizenship, commenting process and etiquette, how to work with widgets, theme customization, how to plan, write, and revise posts, how to add Creative Commons images, how to tag, categorize, and make links…It’s a tall digital order!

So now it’s time to take a look at the fruits of our labours. Students have done a few assigned posts and now they are blogging about their own interests. Follow the links, read the posts, and why not leave a supportive comment? Please leave your blog url so students can return the favour.Grape divinity

  1. Hello Ms. Smith,

    I loved how you advertised my blog so gracefully. I think the way you preview everyone’s blogs is great. I find it fascinating that no one has commented yet, good luck with the edublogs awards

    1. Hi Mike,
      Than k you, Mike, I really appreciate that you noticed my efforts. I am not worried if people don’t comment on this post–I am hoping folks will follow links to your blog and spend some time reading and commenting.
      You are doing great, by the way. 🙂
      Ms. S

    Did any of your students get a nomination for best student blog? I know faith has a really good blog so I thought maybe she was nominated.

    1. Hi Johnny,
      Thank you for your enthusiasm! I think the purpose of the Edublog Awards is to draw attention to the ever-expanding community of bloggers. I am really hoping people will notice how wonderful your class blog is. You are right, Faith has an excellent blog–I am fortunate to be surrounded by excellent writers.
      I know many of my students are already enjoying the friendly dialogue you.
      Thank you Johnny,
