RCET is excited to welcome Mrs. Shelby Detrick and her first graders to the AT&T Classroom. Today the first graders kicked-off their three week session by learning to "blog". The term Blog is short for Web Log and refers to an online space where a user can share information by posting text, images, audio, or video. Today the first graders were introduced to their class blog where they will be able to do a daily writing prompt and share their writing with their teacher and classmates. Providing opportunities for students to “blog” allows children to further develop their literacy skills while also providing them with authentic writing experiences. The children's blog is hosted on KidBlog, a free website for creating and hosting student blogs designed specifically for use by K-12 teachers and students.
