Blogging With 6th Grade

In 6th grade, we have been learning about blogs and blogging. We learned that:
  • Blogs are a more informal way of communicating online
  • Blogs are like a journal with newest entries on the top of the page
  • Blogs are used for many reasons (hobbies, teaching tool, journal...)
  • Blogs are a way to publish online-- some people are even paid to blog!
  • Blogs are a type of digital media and are interactive
  • Blogs are fun and easy to make

Sixth graders have been leaning about the Voyageurs in their Social Studies Class. For their final project, students were asked to journal in the voice of a voyageur.

Students typed their entries up in class, and their teacher and I worked with them to create a blog using blogger.

Check out our Great Blogs!

Citing Websites

In 5th Grade, we are leaning about citations. In the past weeks we have practiced citing books. We are now working on citing websites for our research. Students are practicing finding the name of the website and finding a URL.

We are working together to identify the parts of a website. Students will then practice the skills independently. Next we will work on citing images.

Students used these links to practice with:
Mt. Rainier
Mt. Rainier 2
Tiger 2

6th Grade Non Fiction Book Reviews

Hard at work!
Sixth grade teachers asked me if I would pull some interesting non-fiction books that students could read. Each student then chose a book that was of high interest to them. Students were given two weeks to read their books. Their teachers worked with students to write a summary of the book and a book review. Students also picked out important vocabulary and interesting facts they learned.

When students were ready to publish their review, I pushed into each sixth grade room to teach students how to use SMORE to create an online flier. I have a classroom subscription and will renew my subscription next year. I used it earlier this year with our 4th grade state research. It is a versatile easy to use tool for students (and adults). I can't recommend it enough! See our book review below. They turned out great!
