For the first time since I started blogging with my class, my students are making the blog their own. They are commenting at home, and searching for things to put on the blog even if it is silly video clips. With a little help from house points, they are now getting their parents to comment as well. Several students have become very good at loading pictures, videos and finding their drafts to edit and publish.
I am feeling good about the blog.
I just wish the background would work at school, not only just at home. I tried to copy the background and load it but that doesn't seemed to have worked either.
