My school is not a google school.
My school does not have email addresses for the upper grades.
My classes have computer class every day (with me) and I have them create projects...and I have no way to send them to me.
My school does not let the computer lab print...anything!

With kidblog,  students can upload a project...and if they want to, share it at home.  It is also giving us a chance to practice writing comments that are constructive and written with correct grammar.  We also get a chance to practice writing 7-up sentences.

Character Sketch

My class is preparing to for the state writing (narrative) test in February.  After attending a workshop by Ron Coniglio we've been making our writing more descriptive by adding adjectives, appositives, better verbs, and adverbs.

This week we're describing characters...
1.  age
2.  facial features
3.  clothes
4. happy/sad

I made a powerpoint...hope this goes well.
