It would be so awesome if each student in your class could have their own reading workshop blog! You could also take a spelling grade on it.

Great idea, Kari. I think I may try that next year. :)

From watching that video, I now think that you let us students blog for ownership, sharing, collaboration, discussion, empowerment, interaction, motivation, participation, engagement, excitement, conversation, creativity, reflection, to extend the walls of the classroom, to give students' a 'voice', to give students' and 'audience', to give students a learning environment, To give them skills useful for their digital futures.

I think blogging is a great idea because you get to share your thoughts, opinions and great ideas plus you also get to see other thoughts, opinions, and great ideas that other kids post.

Mr. McGuire I love the blog I hope that you keep doing it. I think it gives us students time to think about school stuff when we aren't in school. I think that it also gives us a laugh sometimes. So I hope that you keep doing the blog all the time when your a teacher. I guess we won't have much time left for you to have the blog. I'm just kidding Mr. McGuire you don't have to blow up OK. :) :) :) :P :P :P ;) ;) ;) <3 <3 <3

It helps with all these things it is important to let kids blog it helps their future.

I think that technology would help us because it would help us understand school better by helping us spell. The reason I say that if we have spelling words we type it and study that way. I think that listening to music would help us be more successful in class. Another reason that we should listen to music is if we have like Mp3 or something that plays music you can listen to it every day. Another reason that I think that using technology is good, an example is a dictionary on the computer
