What’s a blog?  Web + log = blog.  It’s sharing your thoughts with others in a constructive way over time by posting messages on a website.  What do I blog about?  Share you thoughs and connections about the posts I provide for you.

Here are some topics that you may see this year:  books, what you’re learning (school and at home), and topics or themes that I/we introduce to the site.  Anything that involves educational topics!

I will review your blogs and if they are well written, thoughtful, or thought provoking I will put them on for others to view.  Others will see your blog and can reply by building off yours.  I will review their responses and put them on for you.  It’s a cross between journaling and chatting on-line in a safe environment; be appropriate, no email addresses and first names only, follow basic internet safety rules!

Please PROOFREAD your posts before submitting them!

Now it’s time to give it a try!  Our topic is your all time favorite book?  No movies.  Tell us what it is, who it’s by, and why you love it.
