Tool #2- Building Community in the Online Environment

Today I was able to visit many fellow VOE teachers blogs and see their thoughts on 11 Tools! I have been blogging for awhile now and try hard to update my classroom blog for parents as much as possible. I follow many other teacher blogs and have found so many helpful ideas for lessons out there! There is a huge community of teacher bloggers with amazing ideas. I am glad we are able to comment on blogs...even if its just a quick note to say thanks for sharing an amazing idea. One of my favorite blogs to follow is This is an amazing 1st grade teacher with such talent and energy from who knows where!
