What does the Fox Say? Cari Young
We'll take a look at each blog example. We'll talk about what we like and want to adopt in our own blogs. We'll talk about what changes we would suggest. We'll talk about digital citizenship-are these students blogging safely? And we'll leave a comment to encourage these awesome student bloggers!
Mrs. Harris's Reader's Response - Jodi Harris
Why Blogs? This unit is all about empowering students by providing freedom. The blogs add a maker mentality, stirring the imagination to create, design, and tinker. No longer must they be told what to write and how, submitting to another's power and authority. Blogs provide choice and independence, allowing them to own the learning experience.
Bush, Let's Talk Books! Christie Hirst
This is a place for us to talk about books, share ideas and get suggestions for what to read next!
The Bradley Book Review - April Gastinger
April Gastinger’s students at Bradley Middle School provide the campus with a constant stream of student created book reviews with their blog, The Bradley Book Review. The students utilize Google Docs to submit their book reviews prior to publishing on the blog, then use the comments feature to provide feedback. Mrs. Gastinger even takes it a step further by embedding a class Twitter feed in her sidebar that announces when new reviews are published. There’s even a section for student created video book trailers! This is certainly a campus that loves to read.
Mrs. Lasher's Class Web Log- Donna Lasher
Mrs. Lasher’s G/T students (grades K-5) are the contributors and stars of her blog that showcases the various projects completed throughout the year. If that’s not impressive enough, more than 33,000 visitors from all over the world read and comment on the numerous projects her students share. Check out Garrett’s Lego stop motion video he created over the summer. Mrs. Lasher posted this video on School Tube (not blocked by our filter) and easily embedded it in her blog. Check out some of her other projects!
Monkey Madness! - April Semlinger
I am so excited to be teaching 4th grade again this year. 4th grade is my favorite grade to teach, and this year I am lucky to have such a nice class!

My class is full of smart, funny kids. Yesterday we had a visit from author Gretchen Bernabei. She came to talk to our class about writing, and one of my students made her laugh. Alex wanted to share what important things need to go in someone’s writing, and what he said was, “Writing needs lots of precipitations in it.” Mrs. Bernabei thought Alex was so funny, and she even asked him to sign her journal.

Not only do I have a great class this year, but I have something exciting going on too. My husband and I are expecting our first baby and he is a BOY! Baby Mason will be here in May. My class can’t wait to meet him.
Student Blogs

Here are the links for my students' beyond amazing student blogs! They did everything themselves! Hopefully everyone will eventually get to make one. I'm starting with students who have shown exemplary behavior and responsibility. Having a blog online takes a lot of responsibility!
