The second grade teachers and myself discussed how we could get our second graders writing more using digital tools. We decided to introduce email to them, which will lead to using Google Docs, then possibly onto the online school course, Schoology, we use with our 3-6 graders. I hope to also introduce them to blogging in the future. For now they have been introduced to their email accounts and have sent their teachers a friendly email about something they wish for at Christmas time. Now I will read Snowflake Bentley by Jacqueline Briggs Martin to them and then using the website, Make-a-Flake website, they will make their own snowflake and email it to a friend.
