I had a great it is really working moment with my Friday 4th graders. They imported pictures from Camp Write Along into a word document and started typing a “Web Log” type entry. They had fun. Choosing and importing the picture took most of the class, of course.
Next week they will finish their post. Then they will draw a name from a hat and access that person’s post, and write a comment using the 2 stars and a wish format. I’m going to print out the student’s posts and comments to show the higher ups that our students can handle this activity. This plus the lesson plans that invovle blogging that I have developed will hopefully help me get permission to allow the students to blog.
