This week we tried something new with our class blog. My goal is for the kids to have full ownership of the blog and for them to be in charge of what information you read about. This week we used Glogster as our method of blogging. Glogster is a more visual form of blogging and almost comes across as a poster collage of the information shared. The students are able to write detailed sentences about a topic of their choice and then they can add some flare through colors, backgrounds, pictures, and frames. Our first authors to try this new method were Jenna, Joel, and Cadence and it was a fun experience for us all. It was wonderful to watch them progress through the phases of drafting, pre-writing, editing, and producing a final draft.
Have a wonderful holiday weekend!
