I have been blogging with my 4th graders since the 2010-2011 school year. I use as our blogging platform. I am not an ELA teacher, so I have used blogging as a way to have my students reflect on their math learning. So far this year my students have used their blogs for their science reports.

Larisa Tarasevich

In my presentation I talk about the possibilities that blogging gives to my students as EF learners. My students learn about different cultures by reading blogs of their peers from around the world.They also tell the world about our local traditions and school life.
