After independent reading time, I talked to students about blogging, and we walked through the process of setting up our own blogs. Some students discovered blogs they had created when they were in middle school!
For their first blog entry, students will introduce themselves and set their reading goals. This entry is due by the end of the day Wednesday, September 7. Specific instructions and examples are posted on Classroom.
With the remaining class time, students chose to either work on their blogs or continue annotating the excerpts from yesterday. Annotations should be completed by Tuesday so we can proceed to the next step in that work.
Have a great three-day weekend! Be careful out there!
