Blog Guidelines

Our class blog is a way for us to share our ideas and our learning with other people. Sharing our learning means that it is very important that we understand how to use the blog and the internet in a secure way.

The following guidelines have been established to ensure the safety of our students when blogging. The guidelines are also reminders of how to use the blog to improve writing and keyboarding skills.

·         Students' must have the internet permission form completed by parents before any of their work or photos are submitted to this blog.

Student work will only be identified by first names. 

All comments should have first names only. 
·         Parents who leave comments are asked not to use last names either. (Please post comments as “Jack’s mom” or “Rebecca’s grandfather”, etc.) 

All comments submitted will be approved by the Class Teacher before they are included on the blog. 

·         Proof-read your comments carefully. Students should have a family member check for spelling mistakes before submitting a comment.

·         Always write in full sentences – no “text talk” please! As part of writing, you should have a capital letter for your name, beginning of a sentence and a full stop at the end of a sentence.

Please share our blog with your family, friends and neighbours.

  Commenting Guidelines

               As a blogger, you will be commenting on other people’s work regularly. Good comments:

·         are always related to the content of the post;
·         include personal connections to what the author wrote;
