    I found a PowerPoint file called "180 Days of School" created by Terra Graves on TeachersPayTeachers.com. It's free!

    http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/P...ol-Power-Point

    I'm going to have a different student "blog" about each day, saving as we go. There is room and capabilities for putting pictures and video on each slide, so that student will get to have my camera for the day.

    At the end of the day, when everyone else is reading, s/he will have that time to create their slide.

    Theoretically, each student will get to create 6 slides, and then I'll make copies for the kids to take home at the end of the year.

    Chele :)

    I have my class create a blog. (Not an original idea) Each day one kid is the correspondent; it is his job to write a blog entry for the day. My kids loved reading each others' posts and commenting. And bonus for me - as the year progressed, I got to see the student's writing skills improve from time to time. Last year, I had a public blog. This year I am including it as a part of my webpage.

    Great idea--I set up a Blog page on my class website last night. Each week, every group will be responsible for posting to the blog about things that are happening in class, in the school or in the world. I think the kids will love it!

    Awesome! Thanks. I am always looking for ways to integrate technology and it is Perfect. Students might also be able to review a book or movies in the same fashion. Oh the possibilities!

    With Jensen's Journalists, did they write it on paper, and you entered it into the blog? I would love to do something like this, and I am trying to think of how to make it work.:dizzy:

    Mr. Roemer in Florida always had a wonderful fifth grade weblog updated daily at http://www.pb5th.com, but he'll be in second grade next year.

    I've tried these kinds of things and have fallen short.

    I am thinking the same as 49erteacher- how can I do this with my fourth graders? I can show them a sample weblog and then have them update our class Edublogs weblog at least every week.

    No - the kids typed it up at home. But if they couldn't do that, they were to write it on paper and bring that to school the next day so I could see they completed the assignment and then I would allow them to use the computer at school to type it up. Very seldom did I have that though....usually they typed it at home and emailed it to me.
