Explain the benefits of blogging in the classroom as well as how to start your own blog with text and visuals.
A great way to document the journey of the school year is with your classroom’s very own blog. Blogging can be a great way to keep track of all the memorable events that occur in our lives. Having a classroom blog can be used to display all the adventures that take place throughout the school year. Best of all, its FREE!
