Today the grade twos were introduced to commenting on blogs. We looked at the Year Two Information Literacy blog as well as their Class blog. We looked at a few posts and choose one we would like to comment on. There are a few rules they need to follow and we worked our way through them as a class and then created a comment to post.
The rules are…
- Start like a letter
- Compliment the writer, add new information or make a connection
- Ask a question
- Finish like a letter
- Do not include any personal information, especially your last name
- Carefully proofread and edit – capital letters, full stops and correct spelling

We also looked at a few examples to see if the grade twos could follow the rules and decide whether a comment got the thumbs up for being right or the thumbs down for not following the rules.
