If someone came up to you and asked you for a writing tip, could you do it? Well, guess what, it has happened to me. I am going to list a few tips below...
#1. Always choose a topic that interests you.
Example: Remember when I wrote about Brian Nichols? That was a topic that really interested me.
#2. When you proof-read your writing, add in extra and more exciting things.
Example: " Go pick up your mess." Does that sound very exciting? Bump it up and say," Run along and pick up your HUGE diaster." " You will have 100 seconds. 1,2, skip a few,99,100! Now mother is going to be fourious!" (make it fun)
#3. Read your story over and over again until you KNOW it is the right one.
Example: Make sure your writing is the best it can be!!!
Good-day and welcome to this special edition of the Write Webblogger (Me)
In Fulton County, Georgia a murderer named Brian Nichols was captured. Authorities took him to court. There he stole a police officers gun, shot three people, and took off running. The three people that he shot were the judge at the time( Judge Barns), a police officer, and the court room reporter.
Later he shot a Federal Agent. Police found that body soon after the shooting. Right when the investigators thought that they had lost hope, a hostage of Nichol's called and ratted on him. The SWAT team arrived and he came out waving a white t-shirt.
He was arrested and charged for sexual assualt, and for murder. No one knows exactly how log he will be in jail.
This has been a special edition of The Right Weblogger, over and out!!!
Have you ever been in a class called Webblogs? I am, and it is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. In weblogging class, you get to express yourself. You get to have fun with your writing.
I enjoy writing, and I think other people will too. Even though it is a lot of work, it is A LOT of fun. Many people think that elementary students aren't capable of writing such powerful and such wonderful writing. When I think about it, it makes me mad because our elementary students are taught well and are VERY smart. As a matter of fact, here's a story on how someone can become a better writer...
In third, fourth, and fifth grade, we would, and are always watching CNN Student News. This helps me and others be more aware of what is going on around us. One example is when people discovered that stores had food that was expired. It made me want to check the labels on food items.
I put in this small "story" because one day I can write about it and make it more interesting. I hope that middle school teachers will let students blog.
A few days ago, I wrote to a teacher- to- be. We have been doing a bit of writing back and forth with each other. Here is what she had to say about my selection of writing...
" I thought the blog I read was very sweet. The student was so excited to be sharing her ideas with me. She had a great outlook on learning and teachers. She made me feel very excited about becoming a teacher. Her main advice was to make learning fun. I totally agree. Fun in the classroom has been one of my personal missions. She was very encouraging. I think that blogging is a good way of engaging the students."
Wasn't that post so nice? I think so. I really put a lot of effort into the writing that I did about what teachers-to-be should do in order to have a lively classroom. This nice woman's name is Addie. She taught me a little even though she probably didn't know it. She taught me that teachers really do listen to other children's thoughts and ideas.
The first day of webblogging, I was so excited! In the previous years I loved reading the older student's blogs. They were so true and so full of life. I never thought that I would have a chance to do it myself. Any way, as I was saying, the first day that I walked into the webblogging class I was surprised to see the people that I saw. I saw some old and new friends, and that's when I knew that this special event was about to happen to me. Mrs. Davis, our graceful teacher for the class said that we were going to have a wonderful time.
Throughout the year, we as a group of intelligent children have been learning things we had never known before. All of our writings are considered one because we have all had the same advice. I have been taught how to do things that normal kids usually don't do. I am so blessed to be at J. H. House. This is where all of the fun and good learning happens. I am so happy that our school is having the students do blogging. It is an honor.
Mrs. Davis has taught us to always trust ourselves and to never doubt our writing. She has taught us how to proofread, make our writing better, search for a good writing topic, and most importantly how to have fun while writing.
This is a shout out to all the other elementary and middle and high schools, if you don't have the program weblogging, then you might want to think about letting a few students have the power of creating their own blog. It will teach them responsibility, citizenship, and their voice will be heard all over the world. If you want to make the right choice, choose blogs, I did, and I proud to say it!!!
Today when we first walked into weblogging class, Mrs. Davis told us that we needed to start on our comments. I was tickled pink when I read my blog, because I had read a great comment, a comment that meant a lot to me. Addie, who commented me, was a teacher-to-be.
You see the week before, we had to write a post giving a teacher-to-be some advice. She told me that she would use the things that I had recommended she do. So then, Mrs. Davis let me write back to her to tell her how I felt.
First, Mrs. Davis let us respond to our comments. She also gave the class an URL address so we could go to the
weblog. She gave us a name and that was the person we had to respond to. Then, we had to select a part of the blog that we liked. This was hard for me because I liked all of it!!!! Next, we had to go to Microsoft Word to respond to their writing. We are using word because this part in blogging is a new skill. We always practice before we launch off. I got a woman named Alex. I told her my true feelings about her writing. Also, we learned how to link one specific post to the weblog so others could see it. We learned that hyperlinks can be used on webloggs by using the URLs.
I had a wonderful time learning something new!!! Here is an example of what I have been talking about…
I really enjoyed to read the advices that Jhonatan gave me. I take them very seriously, and I am impressed by his thinking skills. I am going to do my best to not disappoint him.
I really love it when teachers (or teachers-to-be) trust student’s thoughts and use them. I was so happy when you said that you took Jhonathan’s thoughts seriously, I know that meant a lot to him, it meant a lot to me too. I am almost positive that if you just be yourself and use his advice, you will be a great teacher.
Hi, my name is Shelby and I'm in fifth grade. I am ten years of age and I love to write. I am a very, very athletic girl and I play softball. Right now, I am playing fast pitch softball. Trust me it is hard!!! Every single time I walk up to the plate, I get a little scared. It's because the ball is coming at you pretty darn fast! In slow pitch softball, I was the best hitter in the whole leauge!!! It's hard to move from one thing to another. That's why I am writing to you today.
There is one thing that you must, must do!!! You must make learning FUN!!! I have a lot of experince with this. Many students think school is boring. Here's some advice, try to make your students laugh, never pop a quiz without talking to the class about it, and make sure you relax and have fun!!!
There is one class that is right down the hall from my classroom. This class is always laughing! We can always hear them when they are haveng a good time!!! There is another class where the teacher has a multiplication rap song !!! When my class is learning something new, we hear the class shouting " Seven times six is forty-two!!!" It really gets me into a better mood when I hear or see someone having fun!!
In the past, some of my teachers have given us a studyguide at the end of class that was blank! Not only did we have to fill it in, but we also had to study it! You know, we could have been studying the wrong answers!
Out of all of the things that I have said, relax, and have fun!!!
