Here We Go!

The Techie Kids have been working hard in our computer lab. We’ve learned about Internet Safety, avatars, digital footprints, keyboarding, word processing, presentations, animations, spreadsheets, research skills, images, and citations. Whew, that’s not bad for only 40 minutes once per week!

We are finally ready to begin blogging!

Last week, we discussed some of the features of our blog. This week, we will get to leave our first blog comment. Let’s look at the Quality Commenting poster shared with us by Miss Jordan from 4KM & 4KJ in Australia.

Thank you, Miss Jordan!

Now let’s go straight to some blogging experts to see what they recommend for leaving a quality comment. After you watch them, go ahead, give it a try!

  8. Dear Mrs Moore and Techie Kids
    It’s great to see you back blogging! What a great idea to put all these posts together, they are all so useful and complement each other well as a resource for going about adding comments. Nice idea!
    I shall look forward to seeing your posts again, now you’re back in action!

    • Dear Mrs. Monaghan,

      It is so wonderful to hear from you! I’ve missed blogging and have been anxious to begin again. We are finally ready to get started and I can’t wait for this year’s Techie Kids to see what this is all about. Our goal is to have students leaving their first independent comments, here, this week. We’ll begin leaving comments as a whole group on other’s blogs next week.

      Thank you for the kind words. If we are introducing commenting, I thought it would be a great idea to go straight to the experts. I am grateful that our blog buddies share their skills with us!

      We will be visiting your blog soon!
      Your pal,
      Mrs. Moore

  9. Mrs, Moore,
    I am a third grade teacher in Jacksonville, NC and I LOVE your Genre song. We are putting on a Genre show for our third grade presentation in March. I would love to do what you did with your techikids with my thirds graders. Would it be possible to get the lyrics to the song? Thank you so much in advance for your help.

    • Dear Ms. Kokinda,

      Welcome! Thanks for leaving us a comment. Wow, I’m so happy you enjoyed our song! It was my hope that it would help others to learn about different genres and remember them by using music. It’s wonderful to know that’s exactly what’s happening. 🙂

      I’d be honored if you would use our song in your presentation. I’ll send you an email with the information you need. Please visit us again soon!

      Best wishes,
      Mrs. Moore
