    My students are writing blogs and are ready to move beyond mom, dad, and grandma as audience. I need a class who will swap commenting time with us. Once a week, we will read and comment on your blogs, and you do that for us. Any takers? Please ... ? :D

    My students are older--grade 7 and 8--but we are almost ready for an authentic audience as well.

    Their writing improves dramatically when peers will be reading it :) . More motivational than me grading it, or their doting family praising it. I am very hopeful a similar-aged class will join us. MrsC, I wish your kids were 7 and 8 years old instead of grade 7 and 8s...

    How many students do you have? We have a limited number who work on our grade level blog, but we have been wanting to move them beyond this.

    TeacherShelly,

    Have you found someone for your read/write blog exchange??

    I am interviewing for a long-term sub position, if I get it....I will be interested in doing this with you.
