I am finding this to take much more time than I expected, especially while trying to keep up with 2 little boys. So I have been trying to find some interesting blogs to follow and let me say this is not easy for me. I looked at what Calloway and Chio had found to give me a starting place and that helped.
http://www.teachingblogaddict.com This blog had different blogs you could follow. I liked Finding joy in the 6th grade. The teacher had a good idea on classroom management that I may incorporate into the classsroom next year. I will visit this site again in the future. One teacher blog that I happened upon was for her students. She had videos and extra practice there. Not sure if this is what I would want to do with a blog but it is an idea.
I made comments on the blogs but had a hard time finding blogs that I would even want to comment on. If I had more time I am sure I could find something that interests me. I found the advice on getting people to comment on your blog helpful. Asking more questions on your posts would be a start. I found it a little difficult to share my thoughts publicly because I didn't feel as though I always had something of value to say. It is different than sharing ideas with your teammates because I was thinking a lot harder about what to say rather than just saying it. I found my self typing a comment but then erasing it because I didn't think it sounded right. I browsed through Landrum's staff blogs to see other peoples ideas and this has been helpful. Look forward to seeing what blogs other teachers have found.
