1st Grade is blogging

  • SumoMe

1LF has taken the plunge into publishing some of their writing online using blogs. I set  a class blog up for them on our wordpress server adding all the kids as author to one main blog. This makes it easy for Lisa, the teacher to manage as she only needs to check one blog to see the kids’ writing. When the students author a blog post they select their name from a list of categories. This way when parents visit the blog and they only want to read their child’s posts, they can click on the name of their child and go directly to their posts. As you can see form the posts, they are short but then again, keyboarding is difficult for 1st graders. However, this kind of activity further reinforces keyboard familiarization with the kids and gets them ready for our introduction to keyboarding which they get in 2nd grade. Please have a look at the 1lf blog and feel free t0 leave a comment to our young authors. I’m sure they would love to have the feedback.
