Student Blogs and Summer Break

Dear Families,

Since decisions about class arrangements for next year are not finalized until September, I have decided to leave your child’s blog open to view over the summer.  However, your child will not be able to post or comment during July and August. If you didn’t have a chance to read everything on your child’s blog or our class blog this year, the summer holidays would be a great time to get caught up on all of the exciting learning that happened in Grade 2.

I will be in touch with you next year if your child’s Grade 3 teacher decides not to pursue blogging as a platform for learning. If you have any questions please contact me by email, or by phone at the school 519-234-6302.

Have a wonderful summer holiday!

Learning About Blogging

We began the week comparing How to Write a Blog Post and How to Write a Blog Comment. We learned that writing a blog post and writing blog comment are very similar. Each group worked on a large Venn diagram to compare a post and a comment:

The big difference between writing a blog post and a blog comment is:

1. When you write a post your are sharing your learning

2. When you write a comment are answering questions so there is more learning

What is most important about writing a blog post or a blog comment is to keep asking and answering questions so their is more learning.
