This came as a bit of a shock to me (not the top 5 reasons, i totally agree with them and think sharing class work and pictures etc with working families through a blog is brilliant, as a parent myself my kids give me no inkling as to what they do everyday and if i wasn’t a parent helper in the classroom i never would find out) i was shocked that Miss Galvin blogs with preppies. I would not have thought to try blogging with such youngsters but she is clearly paving the path for the rest of us to follow. I just wish my children’s teachers would catch up with the times and start blogging too!! I can already see assignment 2 will be jammed packed with hypothetical classrooms blogging away till their hearts content – i just wonder how we change this from the hypothetical classroom to the physical classroom.
