How to begin a blogging in a classroom setting?
Having a class blog is a great way for students to practice their writing and using technology. It is also nice that family and friends can view their blogs from home. The parents are able to see how their child writing is coming along. Although knowing how to create a blog for the class can be challenging. As a teacher you want your students to be safe and protected when posting on the internet. Watch these videos to help you learn how to set up a blog for your classroom.

2. Kids Blog
Describe what you have learned from the videos.

Creating a blog is kind of a scary thought in my head. It makes me nervous just thinking about it. I do not want something to go wrong or someone get upset about the blog. Although through these videos it make me feel more comfortable about creating a class blog. I found that there are a many ways to protect and make sure it is safe for the students to use. First off there is an approved button for the teacher to review anything that is being posted to the blog. There are many websites that are just for starting up students blogs. Kidsblogs.org is made for just for classroom blogs. It is also very user friendly for teachers to use. This sites are also really safe for students to use. I can see myself using either blogger or kidsblogs.org to start a classroom blog in the furture.

  1. Good post this weeek. Make sure that you write with the correct tenses though. watch out for adding extra "Ings" to words. Other than that, your post was well written. I also think having a blog sounds scary but exciting.
