So after thinking about it for a few days, I finally took the plunge. I have started a classroom blog for my Kindergarten students. I am excited to see how this new project of mine will go. My main goal with this blog is to give the parents a visual of what the students have been working on that day at school. I hope to be able to put something on every day but I know that might not always be possible.
As I mentioned earlier, I write a daily email to my parents describing what happened at school and giving them any important information for the upcoming days or weeks at school. My blog is not going to replace this but rather help them understand what we did with a short explanation of a lesson and then a picture of some sort that accompanies the lesson. I am hoping the parents will embrace this, as it will be another way for them to communicate with their child about what has been happening at school. I am going to be very careful not to put up any pictures of the children, as I simply want this to be an informational tool.
Here is the link to the blog. Please be patient if it doesn’t look complete yet. I started it today after school and haven’t had the time to fill in everything yet. I will keep you posted as to the success and if I hear anything back from the parents.
