It has been so wonderful to see how teachers across ISM are using blogs. Currently, all teachers in the elementary school are using the blogs as a form of communication with parents. The class blog serves as a “window” into the classroom. In the past, every classroom teacher sent home a monthly class newsletter; the blogs have replaced this old form of communication and allow teachers to share events and learning as they happen. The students are also learning how to interact with the blogs, and some grade 3 and 4 students are adding their own posts! There are even some after school activities, such as Bamboo Shoots and Animarvelous, using a blog. Below you will see a sample of blogs from across all levels of the elementary school. We hope that this will offer a glimpse of all of the wonderful learning that is happening at the elementary level.
