Blogging Tips for Teachers

This week I will be teaching a class about educational blogging at my school.

I created several informational pages on my website.

Please use the links below to gather information about setting up and maintaining an educational blog.

A few of my third grade students have started blogs! I hope they use these tips too!

  1. Dear Mrs. Yollis' Class,

    I have really enjoyed following your blog the past few months. I wish I had discovered it earlier!
    My students and I would like to thank you for visiting our website and leaving comments. You post such thoughtful and detailed comments!

    Partly because of the cool things that you have done, I am going to have a blog next year instead of a website. Thank you for the inspiration!

    Mr. Salsich

  2. @Mr. Salsich,

    Thank you for commenting and reading our blog. We have enjoyed your website too!

    We look forward to following your blog next year! We know it will be a winner!

    We love that we were an inspiration!

    Thanks again,
    Mrs. Yollis' Class

  3. @ Mrs. Yollis,

    I think it's cool that kids are starting blogs. I can't wait to see how good they all are! How about you!


  4. Dear Mrs. Yollis,

    I liked the post, "Blogging Tips for Teachers". Now I think many people will start their own blogs. I know I am!

  5. @ James,

    I think it is fantastic that so many of you are starting blogs! Becoming a great writer takes practice, so having a blog will definitely help! Plus, I like to read about what people are learning or doing.

    What do you like about blogging?

    Mrs. Yollis
