After reading this article, I can clearly see the benefits of student blogging when approached correctly.  This article discusses how to set up and manage a blog, how to establish a home-school connection, and how to use a blog as an instructional tool.  The most beneficial aspect of this article, in my opinion, is the informational aspect included for parents.  Parents need to be included with social media, blogging, etc. when used at such a young age.  Informing them of the goals and processes of these types of things will make them run more successful.

This article gives great tips for including blogging into your classroom for an instructional purpose.  After reading this article, I feel confident that I could incorporate blogging into my curriculum, and feel prepared!
