This video shows you what I had to say about how Blogging helps us learn - and is fun
I am going to tell you about blogging in our classes and then a bit about my own blog.
Kids at school have a lot of fun blogging. It even helps to improve your spelling and typing skills! One important part of blogging is leaving comments to give people feedback about what they have posted. You can go back and look at the comments from your readers and see what they have suggested you can do to improve. The one thing I like most about blogging is reading my comments. Sometimes I'm lucky enough to have comments from different countries.
I started blogging last year when I was in Miss Squires class, and I have enjoyed it ever since. Last year my blog was nominated for the Best Student Blog award and I came 4th - all the winners were Americans. I write a lot of my posts in class but sometimes I think of stories at home. Fortunately I don't have to remember them until the next day at school, because I can easily access my blog from our home computer. Sometimes I type my posts directly into the blog, sometimes I write them on a Google Doc first and copy and paste them into the blog when they have been edited. Sometimes I write them in my writing book and type them up later when a computer is free. My favourite things to write about are my own made up fantasies. I like to be creative with my writing and try to hook my readers.
Blogging is a privilege because you get to show more than your class what you've been up to. Everyone in the world can share your writing. You also can write in the weekends and holidays if you have got things to say.
Not only can the world see your work, but I can enjoy reading it over and over again.
Why don't you check out our blogs - and make some kids smile by leaving us your comments!
