Paper Blogs Go Live!

Fifth Graders today were able to "publish" their paper blogs today in Mrs. Burns' Reading Class. Students have been working on being a good digital citizen, learning the "ins" and "outs" of blogging, how to write a well written post and how to write good comments. After all our paper practice, we should be ready for blogging with Kidblog and our other Global Read Aloud classrooms!
