Positively Pulaski want to chat

Mrs Forsberg contacted Mrs Leahy recently because they had something in common - their students like to blog!! Mrs Forsberg students are a little bit younger than TY students but they have something in common with TY - they like to blog and everyone loves to see a comment on their own blog. Right?

So Mrs L would like TYs to head over to Mrs Forsbergs 6th Grade blogs at Positive House in Pulaski Community Schools and read their blogs and leave a comment.

Imagine, taking your TY experience even further out of the classroom - all the way to Wisconsin, America!!


Here are a  few tips from Mrs Forsberg.
Before you blog...

*Remember that blogging is a formal type of writing; it's expected that you use standard English and proper punctuation.  (You are representing your class, your school, and your country. :)

*Commenting Etiquette--
  • Make sincere comments (Make a connection to the writing.) "Nice blog" is not a sincere comment.
  • When someone comments on one of your posts, it's polite to visit their's back.
  • It's polite to thank readers for visiting your blog and taking the time to leave a comment. 
  • If someone asks a question in a blog comment, answer it.  If you've asked a question on another blog, check back--You just might get an answer! 
  • When you leave a comment on a post and have the option to leave a link, share the one to your blog.

  1. Mr. McCarthy's and my students are so excited about hearing from you! We've also invited a school from Australia and one from the U.K. to visit your blogs, so expect some new visitors. Thanks for visiting back! I look forward to "meeting" you! :)
