Exeter-Milligan Update: Second Graders Blog

Creative Kids at Work by Marla Weber

It’s time to blog. Each month Second Graders at Exeter-Milligan Public Schools have an opportunity to join a book club. The children read the selected book at home and come to book club prepared to share what they liked about the story. There are no worksheets or directed questions, just a time to have a discussion. This month students used iPads to share their comments about Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. Using Kidblog, a blog site designed for children, students shared their favorite parts of the story and submitted their comments to be viewed by fellow classmates. The Exeter-Milligan second graders have extended an invitation to their pen pals from Friend Public Schools to participate in their next book club via Kidblog.
