We Need to Comment on Content

My classes spent the last two days commenting on blog posts. This is why we did it.

#Comments4Kids was started because several people thought that more attention needed to be spent on content created by students. They need feedback to improve and get better. They need others to notice what they create. I decided my class needed to go out and do commenting because they want others to comment on their content.

I have to say that this was a great idea. I just spent about 30 minutes leaving comments on children's blogs.
Maybe we need to take up the 30 day challenge - at least 1 comment everyday!

I agree with Mr F and of course you Mr C, comments are just so important for students and such a vital part of receiving feedback. I think this is a fantastic idea and can't wait to see it develop.

I agree that getting comments is very motivating for students who are blogging. I like the idea of posting a comment a week and may incorporate that into next years blog (and for the remainder of this year as well).

Commenting on blogs is also another really great way to communicate and learn from people who are not in our classroom. I especially like comments that give us ideas for another blog post. It helps to get feedback so we can become better bloggers!
