This week we are starting the important conversation about quality blog commenting. Since we have just been blogging together for a few weeks in grade 2, it can be a bit overwhelming to learn the criteria and all the buttons to click to get a comment posted. I am more than impressed with the patience and perseverance with our children in learning new skills like this. The quality commenting, quality blogging and global audience conversation will continue through the year :)

When the children are leaving a comment on a blog, they are encouraged to:
  1. Read the post to understand what the author wanted to share.
  2. Leave a compliment, say something nice about what was written.
  3. Make a connection to their lives and what they know.
  4. Ask a question.
  5. Re-read the comment to fix mistakes.
  6. Leave their first name.
Since we started writing blog comments I have been getting emails every evening to approve the comments the children have been sending from home. This is awesome!
