The "Kid Blog' is a safe and effective way to allow your students to keep up to date blogs in a secure evironment. With these blogs students can not only post their own blogs, but oarticipate in discussions.

I feel this is a gerat resourse to use within the classroom, as students and teachers can keep track of students posts and especially look at their progress throughout the year.

Looks like a great tool and it's entirely free. I like that it is based on the Wordpress platform, but removes the clutter and distractions that other blogging services have.

Why reading is important!!

Ann Ewel's curator insight, November 3, 2013 10:10 AM

Neil Gaman says this so eloquently.  Reading is important, Books are important, and libraries are important.

Ann Ewel's insight:

Neil Gaman says this so eloquently.  Reading is important for our society and reading for pleasure has so many positive ramifications -- so why aren't we doing more to encourage our students to find books they like to read, and giving them time to read them?

Pumpkin Geography

Pumpkin Geography | Education | Scoop.it

"After spending a month becoming familiar with the location of the seven continents and the major bodies of water, each student is given a pumpkin to turn into a globe. Students paint the entire surface of the pumpkin blue to represent water. Next, they use pushpins to position and trace the outline of each continent onto their pumpkins. They use actual globes as models and are careful to place the continents in the correct hemisphere. Then, they paint and label each continent a different color. They label the major bodies of water and use white paint to represent the North and South Poles."
