May is Family Blogging Month is off to a great start with about 450 comments received from family members so far!
2KM and 2KJ are keeping track of all their comments on these charts.
In 2KM, Jarrod is in the lead with Millie not far behind.
In 2KJ, Anthony, Charlotte, Ebony and Ella are all in the race for the lead.
Who will win in 2KM and 2KJ? There is a great prize for each winner up for grabs!
We have been receiving lots of quality comments from family members and we got the idea off Mrs Yollis of demonstrating some in this post.
Here is a quality comment on the “We Love Reading” post by Jarrod’s mum, Melane. Melane used a great greeting and closing, added some new information and asked a question. Melane’s paragraphs make her comment so easy to read!
Other teachers like leaving comments on our blog too. Mrs Murphy is a teacher from Point Lonsdale who left this great comment on our “Our Country: Australia” post. Mrs Murphy asked an interesting question and Ebony and her mum went home and researched the answer. Well done, girls!
Liam has also been busy researching a reply. Liam’s grandpa left a comment and asked a question about the Eureka Rebellion on the “Our Country: Australia” post. Liam and his mum found out the answer by researching on their computer at home. Fantastic!
Usually, Miss Jordan, Mrs Morris and the students try to make sure all commenters receive a reply, however with so many comments coming in, this is too much for us to keep up with!
Family members – feel free to leave a reply instead of writing a new comment. Commenting conversations are so much fun!
