Believe it or not, your family can even be in on your educational blogging! Linda Yollis, a third grade teacher, featured a “Family Blogging Month” on their classroom blog. Family members (parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins) were all encouraged to participate in the blog to support the third graders education. Of course, you can respond to your family members blog posts and discuss and/or ask questions about their experiences! You could even post a response to how you would have felt if you were in their shoes. The possibilities are endless!
What are some things my family could blog about?
1. Maybe a grandparent experienced, first hand, a topic we are discussing in class and can relate to one of the books that we read. He/she could share their experiences.
2. Share connections they have to what we are reading about.
3. Share a story that they remember when they were studying what we are studying now.
