Fifth Grade Collaborative Writing Blog

Colleen Urlik (at Kemp) and I (at Central) put together a blog where students from both of our classes can read, comment, and collaborate on writing projects. My class started by writing the weekly writing project, a paragraph describing an interesting place. Then, Mrs. Urlik's class read each blog and posted comments on the paragraphs. Next, Mrs. Urlik's class will post a winter poem that each student wrote. My class will then read and respond to them. The kids love having their work published this way and it's a great way to have them help each other revise & edit. The blog is also open to other comments, so our students would love any comments, ideas, encouragement, etc.
