Be sure to check out the blog for the 2nd graders who are in the beginning stages of an extended research project. Students are choosing the animal they believe they are most like, and then will begin researching the animal to determine if they are really like that animal. Throughout the next seven weeks, students will be using many different software and online applications. So far they have used Kidspiration and WallWisher. They are so excited, so please follow us to see their progress.
First, a blog is similar to an electronic diary. You pretty much post anything you want to it; you can add pictures, avatars, videos, and more. What you are reading right now is an entry in the Berkman Library Blog. I use this blog to keep you update on happenings in the library. If you would like to see some other examples of blogs, click on the "Kid-Friendly Blogs" link to the left.
Through this same link, you will also find directions for how to get your very own blog here at Berkman. If you would like to join us, check it out.
This week, students have been coming to the library to pick up their second free book of the year. Students are so excited to choose their new books to keep for their very own. We will do this at least two more times during the year.
