Commenting

Leaving comments is an important part of blogging. It allows you to engage in discussions, share thoughts and connect with your blog. It transforms your blog from a static space to an interactive community. You can connect with your classmates, friends, family or bloggers from across the country or the world. Blogging has no boundaries.

To create a great comment it’s important to keep a few things in mind.

  1. Write it like a letter with a greeting, followed by the content and then a closing.
  2. Always use correct spelling, punctuation and grammar. Remember no text talk.
  3. Add new, relevant information. Remember stay on topic, don’t write random stuff.
  4. If you want to continue the conversation, end your comment with a question.
  5. Never reveal personal information about yourself such as where you live or specific places you go.
  6. Always read over your comment and edit before you submit it.
  7. Only use one emoticon if you feel the need to use one.
  8. Remember, you are putting your best self forward, so polish your comments.

Activity 5: Our amazing school

image

I think we have an amazing school!  What are the things about our school that YOU love? Is it your classroom, the teachers, our beautiful gardens, a special part of the playground, one of the many programs on offer, or perhaps the INCREDIBLE library and librarian!

I want you to tell the world about it. As well as a great description I’d also like you to add some images of our school.

Even though our school is great, as with all things, there is always something that could be added or improved to make it even greater. What is it? Write a paragraph detailing your ideas.

Take your time, give this some serious thought and above all, have fun!
