I have all of the structure in place that I think I will need when the school year begins:
- I was able to create a direct link to my Google calendar so that parents will be able to see what is going on throughout the year. I can update on Google calendar and it will automatically update on the website. I don’t know if there is a way to wrap text so that some of my entries, like “Back to School Night”, aren’t cut off.
- I am planning on updating the “What’s Happening” page in addition to sending the updates home as a hard copy.
- I used many of the links that Andrew has on his Central website for kid’s links, I thought they were great. Thank you Andrew…
- I would really like to record the first few stories as podcasts and post them on the website next, with the intent of having students do that throughout the year. I am also planning on having students post their writing throughout the year on a classroom blog. Students could also react to each other’s writing as well. I haven’t quite worked out how that is going to look yet.
This is my first crack at creating a website, so any suggestions would be appreciated.
