The idea was simple!
Create a class blog list for educators to use as a resource to get ideas for their own class blog and make connections with classes in other countries.
Now over 2 years later since the class blog list was first created in 2008:
- It’s still growing
- It’s the most visited page on this blog
But like all good ideas it does take work 😎
So it’s now been updated to ensure that it does remain current and contain resources that are helpful.
This update I’ve looked at how else can I make it a better resource?
Firstly, I wanted to make it easier for you to find the class blogs for the grades and/or subjects you teach.
So I’ve improved the categories to better separate:
- Primary / Elementary into each Grade level
- Secondary / High into subject areas.
Updated All Blogs
Next, I’ve checked every blog on the list and removed any that have been:
- No longer exist
- Are no longer active (haven’t updated within 6 months)
- Have changed their privacy from public to private.
And off course, made sure all new blogs submitted were added to the list.
Class Blogging Since ?
Finally. with over 200 class blogs on the list, I wanted to make a way for you to be able to quickly scan the list while learning more about the age of specific blogs.
So I’ve added an icon next to the older class blogs to show how long that blog has been used as a class blog for.
For example, means the blog has been used for class blogging since 2004 whereas a blog with has been used as a class blog since 2009.
I’m sure others, like myself, will be amazed at how long some of these blogs have been used for class blogging!
Is your Class blog on the List?

I’ve been blogging with my class for years, but have just moved schools, and so have started a new blog. So far the children are the most enthusiastic I have had! We are very keen to collect visitors from all over the world, and would particularly like to form links with classes of similar ages.
Blog Name – The Jets Class Blog
Blog Url – http://albertvillagejets.blogspot.com/
Age – Year 2 (6-7 years old)
I am currently establishing my class blog. It is used as a communication tool but I am hoping to expand the use of the blog to making global connections as I learn more. I teach Grade 3 (ages 8-9) at a school in Stittsville, Ontario, Canada. The title of the blog (for now) is Mrs. Georganas.ca and the URL is mrsgeorganas.edublogs.org
I’m also looking for a “teaching partner” to learn about blogging with and to co-think and plan and create!
My classroom blog is: http://stories114.blogspot.com/
My students are 2nd graders (ages 7-9)
The category would be primary.
My assistant and I teach in an urban city in Michigan. We just started blogging in December 2011.
Stories From Room 114 provides stories of our adventures with our 2nd graders – the good, the bad, and the “did that really just happen”
Hope you enjoy our stories!
We’re a group of grade 3/4 students in Victoria, Australia. We’d love to set up quad blogging for when we return from school holidays.

Our address is http://upps.global2.vic.edu.au
