May is Family Blogging Month

Family members: this post is now closed to comments as we have a whopping 160 comments on this post! Please leave your comments on other posts! 🙂

2KM and 2KJ love to share what they are learning and experiencing through this blog.

The involvement of family members in our blog is so important. It makes everything we do at school more meaningful and special.

In an effort to include more family members in our online community, we are starting a new blog comment challenge called

Whenever a students’ family member leaves us a comment, the student will record it on our blog comment chart using the following codes.

Family Blogging Month Codes

At the end of May, the 2KM student and 2KJ student who have the most comments from different family members will win a prize! In order to keep the challenge fair to everyone, each student can only record one comment on the chart per day. So the goal is to get as many different family members involved as possible during the challenge!

Each student has written a letter to a family member or members to ask them to get on board with our challenge and leave us a comment on our blog.

Having conversations through commenting is one of the best parts of blogging so, in your comments feel free to ask questions and reply to other people’s questions.

We’re inviting everyone to comment including mums, dads, brothers, sisters, grandmas, grandpas, uncles, aunts, cousins and family friends.

We had a similar challenge last year in 2KM and 2KJ and it was a big success. Thanks to Mrs Yollis for inspiring us with this idea! She sure does have a lot of great ideas!
