We have continued with our class blog which we began in 5h class and have taken part in a number of Global Projects with other classrooms around the world. The first of these included writing "7 Random Facts about Ourselves" You can read some of them here
We have also continued with the 100 word challenge which has really improved our creative writing. Since we started back in September we have had soembody showcased from our class every week. One week there were 1041 entries from all over the world and that week we had four out of 37 showcases. Read some of our challenges here http://kidblog.org/msokeeffesclass/tag/100wc6th/
We also use our class blog for research. Teacher posts a webquest and we check out the sites she would like us to visit and learn from them. This year we can leave her a comment to tell her what we have learned and we also use the information to help us write blog posts on different subjects.
