Students are eagerly practicing blogging by creating paper blogs about a favorite holiday food. We spent two days discussing and writing about food. We voted on a list of commenting guidelines suggested by students then used the new expectations to add sticky note comments to our blog posts. The results are yummy! Our students are almost ready for guest posting on The Art of Language. Stay tuned for more…now to find snacks, all the delicious descriptions left us hungry!
Paper blogging is an idea we discovered on Karen McMillan’s blog, Learning to Blog Using Paper (Notes From McTeach ) . Her examples and ideas informed our first foray into blogging on paper to build confidence. ReadWriteTeach also has a terrific lesson plan for beginning bloggers at Teaching With Blogs
