I have been blogging with my 2nd graders for the past 4 years. While there are many great free blog hosting sites, I have found http://kidblog.org to be very easy for 2nd graders to use. I use the templates in this packet as a starting point for my students. The writing process takes place on paper first, and then the edited piece is posted on the student's blog. The templates have some structure, but I also encourage the children to adjust the templates to say what they want to say. The last template in the pack does not suggest a topic and is for those times you may want to suggest the topic or the students have their own ideas.
