April is blogging month in elementary at YIS. The purpose is to help students develop a sense of learning community and to make connections between their own learning and the learning that is taking place in other classes.
To raise awareness of class blogging, students, parents and teachers are invited to check each other’s blogs, view and comment on them. Elif Raskin, the ES ICT Facilitator, had the chance to work with Grade 2 students about leaving comments on other elementary school blogs. Elif also plans to work with other grade levels throughout this month. By raising the awareness of blogging, the children learn how to leave comments on each other’s blog and other elementary class blogs. They will also gain confidence to teach their parents!
