U.S. Blogs in K-12 Classrooms

U.S. BlogsThe first school I found that used blogging in the United States was a first grade class in Oxnard, CA, blogging about their year , Hueneme School District with Projects, Books, pictures, and words of the Day. They had things like drawings of President Barack Obama and writings they did about Martin Luther King Jr. This picture was taken when the kids went to the beach to collect hermit crabs. The blog also has poetry and pictures of the students doing different activities. It also has pictures of hermit crab shells that the students decorated. This class blog was very interesting.

U.S. BlogsThe next class blog in the U.S. that I found was Mrs. Heaton's class in South Carolina. On one of her blogs, which is the blog for this week, the students are to write about how they can stop bullying in their school and community. I think this is a great way for children to think outside the box. The assignments before that the students were suppose to write about the "Perfect Pet". This is a great way to combine Science in and have fun on the computer at the same time. She seems to be using the blog so that the children can learn to be creative.
