Kid Blog

Read and Comment on Your Child’s Blog

Room 111 has begun blogging!

What is a blog? 
A blog is short for web log. It is a journal of sorts that lives online and allows for interaction between the author and reader. Kidblog is a safe and simple platform built by teachers so that students can get the most out of the blogging process. Most importantly, Kidblog allows teachers to monitor and control all of the publishing activity.

To read and comment on your child’s blog, go to:

Click on the blog name in which you would like to read and leave a comment.

For your child to go onto their own blog and write a new post, they can go to

  1. Click on “Log In” at the top right hand corner
  2. Go to Select Your Name and have them scroll to their name
  3. Enter Password: blog111 (no spaces)

For your child to view their own blog and read comments on their own blog:
Click on the tab entitled  My blog at the top

For your child to view blogs written by their classmates:

  1. Click on the All Blogs tab at the top. 
  2. Students can write a comment and 
  3. Click on Submit for Review (I review all comments before they are published).
Blogging Rules we share with students:

  1. First Name only ­ never use last names in posts or comments. 
  2. Do not type e­mail addresses or screen names in your blog. Do not type home addresses or phone numbers.
  3. Make sure you are polite.
  4. Be respectful of others’ ideas. 
  5. Check for spelling, spacing, punctuation and capitalization.

Ideas for blogging:
Journal or blog about:

  • Books being read 
  • Science experiments 
  • Topics being studied at school. 

The ideas are endless. Blogging allows more students to express their thoughts and opinions and write fora greater audience.
