This page is aimed for those of you who are, or would like to be, teaching in a grade one classroom. On this page you will find all of the technology-based resources I have gathered that will be beneficial and useful for incorporating technology into your classroom. I hope this page helps you bring fun and learning into your classroom through the use of technology!

Blogging - Blogging can be a useful tool for young children who are just learning how to read and write, or are looking to get better at these skills. Kidblog is a website that is safe for teachers and students to blog. Blogging will allow your students to get familiar with skills such as spelling and word and sentence formation. Blogging also gives your students a space for telling and relating to stories (real or not) in one common area. It also allows children to share their work with their peers to receive comments or feedback, and it allows to comment on their peers' work as well.
