It’s been a busy and exciting time in Grade 3 over the past couple of months. A small group of Grade 3 leaders were selected to form a ‘Little Bloggers’ group. The aim of the group was to introduce them to technology and online programs that they would need later on in their schooling life and beyond.
I could never have imagined the response from the students! They have been amazing; so enthusiastic and determined, soaking up all of the new information. From learning how to independently log on and off to creating a Google doc account and then creating an independent document. Changing font, size and colour – creating a personalized paper blog for their classmates to ‘comment’ (post it note!) From here, they evaluated the comments, assessing what made a useful/not useful comment and used this feedback to create an even better paper blog!
The next stage is to select a Grade 3 leader of the week (someone who has been showing leadership skills in all areas of school) and they become ‘Blogger of the week’. This will include documenting our school week, taking photos and videos of all the fun we have at the OJCS and sharing it on our grade 3 blog! The next group will be starting on Monday and our blogger will have his/her post up by Friday. I CANNOT WAIT!
I am so excited to see what Grade 3 will continue to produce over this year…Watch this space!
