Just received confirmation that I was accepted as a Blogging Mentor for the 2017 Student Blogging Challenge. My first four students I’m mentoring are 10 years old and from Vietnam. This is my first time mentoring students in a global capacity. I’m looking forward to reading the students posts and helping them grow as a blog author. The very first blog post the students wrote was about their “Favorite Food.”
After reading their posts I realized this is going to be a learning experience for me as well as the children. It hit me by surprise to learn the students from Vietnam enjoy the same foods eaten here in America. I can’t wait to read more posts by these young students while helping them grow as both writers and creators. It’s inspirational to be part of this group of educators who are using blogs to expand upon students writing, reading, and digital citizenship skills.
