This week, I am exploring the idea of using a blog in my classroom. I think that since I currently teach 1st grade, I would use a blog as a way to showcase their work, like an talking bulletin board. Why should I do this? What purpose would this serve? Well for one, I believe it would do a lot for the self confidence of my students. They will gain much needed knowledge in oral communication if they have to read in front of the camera. I would love some suggestions on how to differentiate instruction for some of my struggling students using blogs.
