Best Books and Blog Commenting

I’m so excited because one of my third grade classes has started blogging!  We are going to talk about commenting on blogs as part of a lesson in The Merry Media Center.  During the lesson, we will watch 2 videos by Mrs. Yollis about the best ways to comment on a blog post and how to post a comment to a blog.  While we are practicing our blog comments, students will have the opportunity to post a comment to this blog.

I hope that my students will share

1. the title of the best book they have read this school year

and 

2.  how they feel about commenting on a blog.

I can’t wait to see the responses from my students!

WebQuest for 3rd Grade Students

I have started my own little website for a class I am taking.  Yes, kids, teachers do take classes.  I thought that this would be a great place to show it off!  The site is not yet complete, but I have worked hard on the content that is there.  Some of the things you will find on my site are activities that go along with the book Scat by Carl Hiaasen (look for Operation: Author Help– it’s a WebQuest) and Love that Dog by Sharon Creech.

Here’s a link!  Enjoy!
