Setting Up Your Blogmeister Account Your Presenters: Barbara Ozminkowski, K @ Guest Jen Phillips-Weckstein, K @ Dublin
What is ClassBlogmeister? BlogMeister is a blogging tool developed for teachers as an authentic publishing environment to promote the development of effective communication skills in students. Teachers establish a blogging account on which they can publish their own articles. Teachers can then set up blogging accounts for their students, which the teacher maintains publishing control.

Parent Comments on blogging Barb - I love love love it ! How cool is blogging for kindergartners? Because my husband and I work full time we sometimes feel like we short change our kids in staying active in their day to day activities. But, with you blogging & teaching the kids it kind of gives us a closer connection. I just went through with Zach some of the topics and pics you've posted, so so awesome. I was impressed... he named all the kids but one girl. And told me that him and Nicholas are great drawers and that he doesn't like salad (I think he meant spinach). :) Beth
One more… Mrs. O. Thank you for creating your blog; it is fantastic. Kieran and I reviewed it prior to the start of the school year. I will regularly use it to stimulate conversations between Kieran and I about what was taking place in the classroom. With warm regards on a cool fall day. Jameson
