I am a Fifth grade teacher.  In August, I decided that my students would start blogs this year, yet, here it is November and we still have not gotten to it.  I was thinking I was lazy or we just didn’t have enough access to the needed technology.  But then I read this post I found on my awesome twitter feed, chock full of the best PLN contributors one could ever hope for. http://langwitches.org/blog/2011/11/26/learning-about-blogs-for-your-students-part-ii-writing/ Silvia is so right. I need to actually do this for myself before I can ask my students to do this.  And, as Silvia mentions, you can not blog for the sake of blogging.  I need to make this a learning tool for myself… using it for recording and reflection. Heck, I haven’t even read Part I yet! But, here it goes.
