Hello New Jersey!

This week in 7 Rebecca, one of the things we have been working on is beginning to connect with out blogging buddies in New Jersey. They are Mr Fritzky’s Writing and Reading grade 5 classes. We’re all very excited about connecting with them, and we’re hoping to Skype them in the future.

This week we have been commenting on their blogs for the first time. First we looked at other class blogs to see how other people comment on blogs. In particular we looked at 4KM and 4KJ’s blog post about how to leave a good blog comment. Then we practiced our own, including introductions, polite and formal language, and a goodbye.

We hope that they enjoyed reading out comments about their wonderful writing and reviews, and that they will be able to begin commenting on our blog once we build it up more.

Have you had experience with global blogging?

Why do you think it is important to connect with people around the world?
