Grammar mechanics and blogging

I had the opportunity to wander into the Condit Lab today and see Ms. Pruetz working with a group of 4th graders on their student blogs. This lesson was about making spelling and grammar corrections on a sample blog post. It is great to see these kids bringing their understanding of the writing process to the lab. The importance of checking your writing with a critical eye was stressed and practiced. Spell check will NOT always save your life 🙂
