My class blog has been a central part of our classroom this year for reflecting on and publishing student work while celebrating the students’ achievements in their Grade Two year.
Making global connections has been one of the most rewarding parts of the blogging experience for me and my class.
While the global world can seem like an abstract concept for 7 and 8 year olds, connecting with others on the opposite side of the Earth have helped my students develop an understanding of the world in which they live.
One of the most rewarding experiences my students had this year was when we skyped with our blogging buddies in Mrs Yollis’ class this week. Read about it here.
