How do we get our community more involved with our blogs?

    I try and promote the blog by including links to all the websites we use as part of our e-learning in class.  The kids use these live links at home a lot...especially the studyladder link as parents have been informed that this includes the 'set tasks' section that run alongside what is being targeted in class.  They check out the new additions to the blog while they are in there usually. We also include books we have enjoyed together. I also send a letter home explaining how to get into the blog and what it is for.  Then a few weeks later they get the address sent home again just to remind them that it exists. The children are asked most mornings who has gone into the blog...whether at school or at home and if they haven't then why not?   The blog is used as part of our independant work during guided reading and we follow other classes blogs.  I have always seen the blog as basicaly a bridge between school and home /  family. This was especially true when we had a Christchurch student with us and her family informed me that it was really helpful for them to be able to follow what we were doing via the blog.  Dave.
