Guest Post by Fern Smith

Using a Blog for Individual Student Web Pages
I have finally tweaked my "student work" website/blog where I want it! 
I am using this separate blog address Mrs. Smith's Classroom to be a place where my students and their family & friends can come to see their work & class photos. It stays separate from my blog spot, Fern Smith's Classroom Ideas, but I also have parents who follow me there too!
Once the parents and students get to the classroom blog, I use the "labels" feature to put their initials with each post. 
So if it is a picture of two girls, I put both of their initials in the "labels" for that post.
  If it is a story they've written, it will only have one set of initials. 
Then using the labels gadget in the Design Page, I 
can have a link to the page with each of their labels!
The Internet sees this as a page displaying all of the posts containing each label, but to the Internet User, it looks like a page designed for just that child! So when they click on KP, they will see there son, K***n's work and pictures!
They ♥love♥ it!
MB's "Web Page" with all her links and pictures!
 I also have a letter I send home explaining my policy to the parents and getting parental permission to use their child's work & photo, the parents ♥love♥ it too!

I'm currently the 3rd grade team leader, Teacher of the Year and blog addict!
I love new followers, come check out my blog and see what you think!


  1. What an awesome idea, Fern! So simple, but saves a ton of work updating individual blogs for the youngest students. Thanks for sharing! And thanks for hosting, Tammy!


  2. I love this idea! Thanks for sharing.

  3. People can us youtube
    ​for promoting their products as well. They can publish advertisements, and tutorials. However, in order to increase the business related to Search Engine Optimization (SEO), it is necessary to increase video views as much as possible.
