We have been discussing digital literacy quite a bit these past months. We have been making connections everywhere we look. Additionally, the 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders have been introduced to spreadsheets in Excel. Watch for the projects they are working on to be posted later…
I know that our time together each week is quite limited. I would like to make sure that we have not forgotten about our blog buddies and how to write quality comments. SO, in an effort to encourage you to practice your digital skills at home, I am issuing a blogging challenge! This month, students can earn 1 piece of candy per 2 quality comments left on our blog or on our Blog Buddies posts. Remember, a quality comment would include all of the items we have discussed in class. The top comment writer will receive a cool PRIZE! All other participants will have an opportunity to win a prize, as well, by having their name entered into a drawing.
Please post a comment here to tell us what you are learning from our friends and where you learned it. The student who finds the most interesting or unique fact will also receive a PRIZE. We will vote on the most interesting comments at the end of the month.
Don’t forget to ask questions and leave comments for other students.
Another part of the challenge involves practicing your keyboarding skills at home. You have an extra chance to earn 1 piece of candy each week that you practice your keyboarding skills at home. Visit Dance Mat Typing or E-Learning for Kids, from home, at least 2 times for 20 minutes each during the week. Then, leave a quality comment on this post with your first name and an adult family member’s first name who can confirm that you met this challenge.
What have you learned from our Blog Buddies?
Can you tell me about a time that you participated in a contest?
