Welcome to our blog!

Hello class of 2015-16 and welcome to our fabulous class blog! In the past Bloggin Frogs have participated in the Edublogs Student Blogging Challenge. It begins in September, and so soon we’ll make connections with other classes  through our blog. But before that I’d like a few enthusiastic bloggers to be our guest contributors on our class blog. You can write about anything really. You may want to write about your initial impressions of 4th grade, why you’re excited to start blogging, a book that you just read and want to share with others, a great movie you just saw, maybe even a current event you just heard about . . . it’s really up to you.

If you’re interested, please leave a comment on this post. AND remember–never use your last name when commenting online, and always check what you’ve written before you post your comment!

About the Author

Hello my name is Karen McKelvey and I am a 3rd grade teacher at Curie Elementary School in San Diego, California. I began teaching at Curie Elementary in 2002. I feel fortunate to be part of such a great community. I love blogging with my students as it provides them with an authentic audience for their work. Collaborative group work and project-based learning are key components of my classroom. I completed my Masters degree in Educational Technology from San Diego State University in 2010. Many of the concepts/pedagogy and technologies I learned about in this program, like learning management systems, Google tools, and blogs are implemented in my classroom. Technology plays a key role in the learning that occurs in our classroom. We don’t learn about technology, we learn with technology. Students are engaged in activities that incorporate writing, research skills, critical and creative thinking skills, and much more on a daily basis.

    Hi Mrs. McKelvey! This is Mrs. Quigley, a fourth grade teacher in Hudsonville, Michigan. We would love to blog with your class! This would be our first time to do this, so we could use some tips! Please let us know where your class is from.

    Hello Mrs. McKelvey!
    I’m Mrs. Cruz, I came across your blog as I am learning about classroom blogging. This experience is very new to me! I am also a 4th grade teacher, but I live in Las Vegas. I just wanted to say I am enjoying your blog so far, and have great new school year!
