Many Schools with Blogs

Cold Springs Elementary also is using Blogs ( One blog that interested me was the one that had fifth and sixth graders commenting on how they should act when blogging. There was even a video attached to it that talked more about Blogs. This site was not as easy to navigate as some of the others, but still worth looking at.

Grandview Elementary doesn't just have a cool Blog, they have one of the better websites I have ever seen for an elementary school ( Their site explains what blogs are and how students should handle themselves when blogging. They are encouraging students to publish their writing pieces as a blog so that they can get feedback about their writing from other people. I could not figure out where… Continue

How about a place to blog?

Fine, this really doesn't count as a blog where people have commented, but it is a place to set up blogging for your school. Check out Learnerblogs ( It is a place created specifically for edublogs.

Book Blog - Interesting Idea

Greetings Rnlivingsto,

I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of Like many school districts, we are in a financial crises. Our school board recently proposed to eliminate ALL 20+ middle school teacher librarians and also cut all 90+ elementary schools to half time. Since we are the biggest district in all of Colorado, we worry this will cause other districts to follow suit. We launched an online movement and are going to do our best to put up a good fight.

If possible, please visit our Facebook page and "Like" us . Adding a positive comment and sharing with your friends would help our morale as well. The board finalizes the budget soon so your timely support would be greatly appreciated!
