In a meeting today, we were discussing writing goals for our building. In the first couple days of school, I have been able to model the writing process, edit, and talk about purpose and audience. The students are engaged, and are working hard. They are so excited about sharing their ideas through the blog. I have a 2nd grade teacher who wants to use blogs for writing journals, and a 4th grade teacher who wants to create peer groups to discuss writing. Slowly but surely I hope to show more teachers that a blog can be an effective tool for writing, not just an "add-on" when traditional projects are finished.
