I have shared with you about this school year. I have shared that when this school year started I quickly realized it was collectively a classroom of the most challenging students I have ever taught, but I haven’t shared with you this part of that journey yet…this lesson learned.
This seems to happen each year…this type of moment in my classroom. Fresh off the ICE conference and well into a routine with my students. I suddenly feel inspired to start changing things. This year was the same as last. The change meant it was time for my students to start blogging.
Student blogging is nothing new to me. My class blogged last year too. It should have been something that I started right at the beginning of the school year, but with a new group of 6th graders and a brand new Reading and Language Arts curriculum, it left me little time for anything considered extra.
Three quarters of school and more the six months into school, me and my students were ready…ready to start blogging!
….as eyes lit up and smiles of inspiration took over faces, I wondered why they heck did I wait so long to do this and I knew that I would never wait this long ever again!!!
