Why Blogging is Rewarding

Recently the students have been doing their fair share of blogging. As a class, we use Kidblog. If you are unfamiliar with Kidblog click here to learn more. On Monday students wrote a post about whether they would like to "hang out" with the main character from their novel. As most times, I posted their responses on Twitter. If you don't use Twitter you might be unaware that their are hashtags (#) that can be used for certain audiences. To gain the attention of other teachers and students I often use the #comments4kids hashtag. 
Students were delighted to see this morning that they had received comments from as far away as Alabama.
