Student Blogging Challenge – Time to Visit

It’s time to really start visiting other blogs on a regular basis and leave QUALITY COMMENTS. You’ll be asked to explore the FLIPBOARD MAGAZINE that displays some of the best posts on students’ blogs. You’ll find some of your posts there. So here are the tasks for this week:

  1. Click on the flipboard magazine link here
  2. Click on the title of the post of what looks like an interesting image or a catchy title.
  3. You should now be taken to the actual blog post, read it and leave a comment.
  4. Don’t forget to ask some questions at the end (about the post, the person who wrote it or the culture, country …).
  5. Come back to the magazine again and repeat two more times.
  6. Don’t forget to leave the URL address of your own blog.

Write a blog post mentioning the 3 blog posts you’ve read. Say why you’ve chosen them, why you liked them and ADD the comment you left. Your post should have the title Time to Visit – My Comments.

Don’t forget to add the LINK to the post you’ve read and your comment on it.

Get to it – start visiting and leaving quality comments that show you have really read the post!

Example:

Time to Visit – My Comments

Our Class Blog got a very nice comment from a boy from Canada, Daniel. He took the time to explore the Home Page. He watched the Prezi on facts about me, and the video on our school and took the survey with questions on SPGomes. So I visited his blog and found a lovely post he wrote about his home. I loved reading his post and so left the following comment:

Hi Daniel!

Thanks for visiting our class blog! You left a very nice comment. Your home seems very nice. I’m sure you’re very happy there. I agree with you. Home is where we feel safe and can be with those we love. To relax I love reading and listening to audio books. Unfortunately I don’t have a pool. It must be great to be in the pool and look at the stars!
What subjects do you have and what sports do you play at school? What do Canadian teenagers do in their free time?
When you visit our class blog again, have a look at the sidebar where you’ll find the list of my students’ blogs. You can ask them questions about Portugal and they will access your blog and ask you questions about you and your country. This is such a great opportunity to learn more about other countries, other cultures and make blogging friends all over the world!
