A few of the students have been wanting to confirm the proper way to respond to my response to their original novel letters they published this past week. Many of them are going in and reading my comments and wanting to begin writing, edit and revising, and saving it as a draft before publishing. Your child might be asking about this for Sunday.
The easiest way to respond is writing directly in the comment box below their original blog, and below my private response. However, those that would like to start their response, edit and revise, and publish on their assigned day can do the following:
1 – copy my comments from the comment box below their original post
2 – paste my comments into a new blog post (Add New Post) and then “save draft”.
3 – Use my comments to write their responses. Edit & revise.
4 – When it comes time for them to “publish”, instead of publishing a new blog post, they can copy and paste their responses into the comment box below mine under their original blog post from Week 1.
Clear as mud!? 🙂
These same instructions are on kidblog.org with the Title:
Test Test – Week 2 Novel Letter Responses!!
This is Ms. MacIsaac. I’m showing you how I want you to respond to my novel letter response.
Week 1 – Write your novel letter and publish on your assigned date (completed).
Week 2 – This week! Read my response and think about how you want to respond. The easiest way to respond to my comments is respond in the comment box directly below my responses to your original blog post. If you want to work on it over the weekend and the next few days, copy and paste my response into a “new blog post” and save it. When you are ready to submit your comments, copy your response and paste them into the comment box below my reply from Week 1. This reply is on your own blog page.
Week 3 – Ask 2 questions to your 3 classmates written on your sheet in the comment box below their original novel letter blog
Week 4 – Respond to your 3 classmates questions from Week 3 in the same way you responded to me!
