How was the Halloween parade this morning? Were you scared? Did you enjoy the music? I know the Kindergarten children were excited as they marched around the halls!
Now we're ready to blog! The first thing you want to do today is check your comments and reply. Make sure to answer all of them. Remember to use the person's name so they will know you are writing back to them. You sure have some good comments going back and forth. Then try using a comment starter with one of your peers. Try to end your comments with good thought-provoking questions that will continue the dialog.
Then you will spend time on your news stories and maybe even some Halloween stories will be written. We are at a good point now and can really get into the practice of blogging. We'll learn how to add pictures and links. It's going to be fun!
Take a moment and review the task part of our webquest. I am going to be working with you one by one so you can see how easy it is to add to the class wiki. Take a very careful look at the guidelines and in particular the traits of a successful blogger. That's what you really need to think about and be pondering what you can add to the conversation. I can't wait to see what you will add to the wiki!
