Writing Quality Comments

1. Greeting

2. A compliment eg, "I enjoyed reading your post."

4. Make a connection e.g. if you are reading a post about a school camp, you might write, "We also have a school camp but we go on our camp later in the year. We go on the Otago Rail Trail."

5. Ask a question e.g. "What was your favourite part of the camp?"

  4. Hi 8C, Our classroom name is Te Ahurutanga - Room 7, we are an Intermediate class in Whakatane. We have both Year 7'/8's and boys/girls in our class. My name is Mr Mita and I was wondering if it was okay to use your 'Writing Quality Guidelines'? We would also like to invite you to look at our classroom blog and our student blogs at http://kidblog.org/TeAhurutanga/. I enjoyed looking around your blog site and I will be sharing some of your work with my classroom via data projector.

    Thank you

    Mr Mita, Room 7, Whakatane Intermediate School
