I LOVE the wall wishers and setting up the classroom blog. I think I will start out the blog then give it over to the students to keep up on a daily basis. It can have different pieces and also a place for them to go to discuss questions that come up but that we don't have time to really discuss to great extent.
Wall wishers will be used to communicate info and reminders to parents and students. I was thinking I would use twitter to communicate to parents but then saw that it is recommended for 6th and up so decided on the other two.
