Digital Teacher Challenge
In honor of our newly purchased subscription to Kidblog for K-8 teachers, the January digital Teacher's Challenge theme is Blogging!
All resources are posted and ready for you to explore on the Digital Teacher Challenge page. The platform for K-8 bloggers is Kidblog and Blogger for 9-12. Blogging is a very powerful way to encourage literacy skills in all curricular areas while engaging kids in collaborative and communicative writing. If you have never before blogged there are resources available on the site for you and for those who have blogged already, I hope you will be inspired to try some fresh new ideas with which to spruce up the current blogs.
