Comments-4-Kids | November Summary
The first blog was written by a 7th grade student named Christian from Ontario, Canada. In his post, Christian was discussing the character Melody from one of this year's Global Real Aloud books, "Out of My Mind" by Sharon Draper. Christian goes on to write about how difficult it must be for Melody to live since she is unable to communicate. However, he indicates that he would certainly try to be her friend because he believes he would still be able to have fun with her because she is able to smile and laugh. This is such a sweet, heartfelt post. In my response to Christian, I mentioned that I was aware of the Global Read Aloud project and that I may have to join-in and read this much talked about book. I also praised him for being so kind, and willing to befriend someone that so many would outcast.
The second blog was written by Faaiua who is a student in Mr. Mark's class at Pt. England School in Auckland, New Zealand. In somewhat of a related topic from another kid blog I read in September in which a student wrote about her love of the game of Minecraft, Faauia created a Google Presentation detailing the technological advances of this popular kid game. In my response, I mentioned how interesting her presentation was and that she did a really nice job with the presentation.
And finally, the last kid blog was written by a student from Mrs. Yollis' 3rd Grade class. Sarah, who is a trained violinist, wrote about her experience auditioning for the Junior Orchestra and included a video of her playing her violin. All I have to say is WOW! This child is extremely driven. Sarah not only plays the violin, she also plays the piano and takes gymnastic lessons. In addition, I commented on how well she did on her video, praised her for her accomplishments and encouraged her to keep practicing.
