2nd Graders Write About Our Missing Duck

We showed our duck blog to the 2nd graders this afternoon and asked them to write a fictional or nonfictional story about where the missing duck might be. Click on the duck below to read (unedited!) responses:

    I am a Technology Facilitator near Atlanta Georgia. I think it is great that the students are involved with blogging. We have started in our school recently. I also like that you left the creative (inventive) spelling instead of editing.

  5.    Thing #4 Blogs are fun - Jennifer Coleman says:

    I thought this is very creative. i love the idea of little ones being able to blog. I am a teaching assistant in Mesquite, TX and I think it is great that our younger students are being able to use technology in such a fun way. It makes learning so much fun for the students and so much more fun for the teacher to get to teach. I like the story.

    Shopping was definitely the top choice of where Daisy went. She must be a duck after my own heart. I think that the mall is where my friends would look for me first. I enjoyed reading all of the imaginative post that the class wrote

    I enjoyed the stories about the duck! It reminded me of Robert McCloskey’s Make Way For Ducklings.

    I really enjoyed reading all the different stories about what happened to the duck. It is amazing that 2nd graders know how to blog. I really liked the variety, some told stories while others asked more questions to the question.

    I loved reading their theories about the missing duck. Besides the fact that the students are more creative than I could ever be I treasure the concept of letting them imagine and knowing they may never get their answer. This kind of learning inspires intellectual curiosity that no worksheet ever can. Thank you to all the enducators who are willing to think outside the box!

    What a fun activity for 2nd graders to learn and create for a blog post. I am currently taking a Web 2.0 course on integrating Web 2.0 into our curriculum. Your activity is great way to introduce blogging to students. I am always interested in learning how to incorporate blogging into my classroom.

    I think this is an awesome way to pull students into a constructive and creative way of writing. It gives them a visual to go by and helps the students to have a way to identify with their writing.
