Ideas for blog…

After watching the Spotlight on Technology video with Kathy Martin I thought having students create their own blog where they could interact with each other would be a great tool for a classroom.  As a “partly” departmentalized 5th grade teacher I think it would be a wonderful way to not only have communication between my three mathematics classes, but also a way to integrate writing into math.  A goal that I have set for myself this year is to have my students (math and language arts) do as much writing as they possibly could and if I provide them with a method to write that is fun and interactive then I may reach my goal while the students are able to have a wonderful time learning.
