Kids can BLOG about the books they READ!!
We all know that responding to reading increases reading comprehension and we always have our students respond in a reading journal using paper and pencil.
Why not have our students respond to their stories in the form of a blog post??
Blogging about the stories they read will allow collaboration between students and even parents. Students will be able to reflect on their stories and get excited about learning.
Technology makes anything fun!! We have to get our students to read and have fun at the same time. Blogging about reading will allow us to do that.
This product includes a BUNDLE of two separate products. You can also purchase these products individually. Also included is a set up guide for Kidblog (a free blogging site for students).
