Update about 2nd Grade Bloggers

Welcome to Writers’ Sites. I found this site while looking on the Global Education Ning.

This site made me so happy because Rob Sbaglia just wants to connect students who write. It is such a simple concept. Rob is doing a great job facilitating the joining and setting up of accounts. I hope more people will use this site.

Last week, Manitou Springs Elementary School Teacher Maria Woytko-Morris has had her 23 students log into the site and blog their first creative writing piece. These are 2nd graders from Colorado, USA.

In the next week, the students from Colorado will receive comments from 2nd grade teachers from Michigan, USA and Shanghai, China. Once all have commented on the Colorado students, we will switch and another classroom will post their writing on their blog and again the other students will comment again.

We hope this exchange will allow the students to grow in their writing and commenting skills. We also feel that they will become more globally aware through the project.
