How to comment on blog posts

Top make the most of our fantastic class blogs it is important that children comment on each other’s work. This is a skills which needs to be taught, so that children can leave comments which are respectful and constructive. I use the three rules of a good comment, which were introduced to me by Deputy Mithcell when he worked with us last year. You can see the rules on the sidebar of all of our class blogs. They are:

1. Be positive – always begin with what you like about a post.
2. Ask a question – because that will encourage people to reply to your comment.
3. Suggest an improvement – Politely, suggest how could the post be even better.

Here are links to the work I did with each class:

How to leave a good comment

Today, Year 1 and Year 2 will be learning how to write good comments on blog posts. We will be looking at the three rules:

1. Be positive – always begin with what you like about a post.
2. Ask a question – because that will encourage people to reply to your comment.
3. Suggest an improvement – Politely, suggest how could the post be even better or what could the poster do next?

We will begin by practising comments on whiteboards, before moving on to leaving comments on class blogs.
