Quizzing and Blogging

Are you ready to create a blog of your own?

Run-on Sentence Quiz  Happy Wednesday! Let's start the day by demonstrating what we've learned about run-on sentences and how to repair them. You may find your quiz here. If you finish early, you may read and/or take A.R. quizzes. 

KidBlog: Getting Started  Mr. McGinty has a blog. Shouldn't you have a blog of your own? Today each of you will have the opportunity to set up your very own blog using the site Kidblog



After arriving at the site, click on "Students" in red, and then enter your class code: 
Period 2 - gg5ixxt, Period 3 - dvnsy5v, and Period 5 - a4gv8xt

Next, try signing up by linking your Google account. Once you're logged in and if you have time, try making your first blog post. Entitle it "About Me" and introduce yourself to your community of fellow bloggers. Without using your last name, tell your readers about yourself, your background, your interests, your values, your passions, your dreams, etc. Have fun! 

We will hopefully be using KidBlog a lot this year, as a way to express ourselves, improve our writing, and connect with people from around the world. 

Homework  Read your A.R. book at home for at least 30 minutes and, if you choose, make a reading log entry using the Digital Reading Log. (Remember you must have made at least two by the end of the week.)
