We have been learning about reading and writing with blogs. We are participating in a global collaboration project called The Student Blogging Challenge in which students and classes from around the world join together to work on improving their writing through blogging. This project also challenges us to learn new web tools that support and enrich our learning. We learn how to communicate and collaborate with others around the world.
We know that we are also using our blog to practice our independent and partner reading with our parents. Reading includes: independent reading, partner reading, and listening to a book being read aloud. We know we can also read books on the iPad or the computer.
We will also be starting book bags for at home reading. This is are a fun way to do your daily reading homework, and a great way for you to share your learning with us. We will be blogging about our reading as a way to share our reading reflections with each other. I am excited to start this type of book sharing. Yay for reading!
