Fox Hill Third grade classes have been using Kidblog to create and share their poems, as they begin to learn the basics of blogging, creating content online and sharing it with others.
Kidblog is a great resource for beginning student blogging. Students can publish their work in a closed environment with their classmates and teacher. Email accounts are not required to login and students can start to learn the basics of how to post content, create appropriate digital profiles for their online presence and become good Digital Citizens, making positive, relevant comments on each others work.

Here are a few other ideas of how you can use kidblog with your class.
- create discussions
- post prompts for writing
- journal writing online
- publish student work (writing, photos, video, etc.)
