I have been going back and forth for a few weeks now about whether or not to start a blog for my classroom. A blog that will give parents up-to-date information about what is going on in our classroom, more than our weekly newsletter usually gives, and a chance to allow students to "blog" about what they are learning. I teach 2nd grade and didn't know if this was something my students would be able to do with minimal help, when I would find time to let a student or two blog each day about their learning, and if it would be beneficial for students and their parents. So I wanted to get your thoughts on it. Do you have a classroom blog? Do you post things daily as well as have students post about their learning or what you're doing in class? How do you find time to let a couple of students post on the blog?
