I have been trying to think of ways to engage our students, parents and whanau with our learning through our class blog.
Recently I came across this blog http://yollisclassblog.blogspot.co.nz/ from a teacher in America. She has a page where her students, parents, family, and relatives can contribute photos. http://yollis365project.blogspot.co.nz/ I thought this was a very cool idea. It would provide a way for students and families to connect and share learning, and could also provide a great inspiration for writing in our class.
Please get involved, take photos and encourage others to too! Have a look at Mrs Yollis' page to get some ideas. You could use a camera, iPad or phone. What would make an interesting photo?
Check it out at the tab at the top of the page or click
Email your photos to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
ANYONE can share their photos with me.
Make sure you include the following information:
1. An interesting photo
2.Who took the photo
3. A few sentences about the photo- (think- who, what, when, where, why)
