We did actually do a blog last year. Around Christmas all the 2nd and 3rd grade teachers read "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" to their classes. We read a chapter a day and asked a trivia question the next day during the morning announcements. Correct answers were put into a drawing for a prize at the end of the day.

We have one student computer in our room and a lab in our building that we visit for 60 min. a week, so it's a little hard to use the tools when access is limited. However, I'm going to give it a shot next year.
