Comment buddies list

Below you will see a list of people who you will be commenting on in the Kidblog post this week.
Please have your comments finished by Friday. Stick with the formula list below and which I will teach on Wednesday morning.

1. Start with a salutation
2. Tell your buddy what you liked about their post
3. Tell your buddy about what your opinion is about their idea, ( agree, disagree or you have your own idea)
4. Give your buddy one comment on how they can move forward for example, “ you might want to consider staying on topic since the task was to write about people walking through the walls. You wrote about X and didn’t say much about the task we were supposed to write about.”
5. Always finish with a kind word to your buddy for example, “ overall I really loved how you wrote about what was on the other side of the wall! I would love to go to a room with Pokemon cards everywhere! Thanks for your great post.”
6. And finally sign off like you would in a letter such as “ Sincerely , Ms. MacK”

Example of comment
Hi Jess,
 Wow! what a great idea to have your post about a normal shopping trip! I felt like I was right there watching the whole event happen. Imagine my surprise when I read that your sister and brother vanished and you went hunting for them only to find them sucked into another vortex in time! Wow! If I could give one small piece of advice, I would suggest that you try to stay in the moment instead of when you were hunting around the shopping center. Other then that, great job.
Thanks for the great read!
Your friend,
Patricia

URGENT...LOST SACRED ANIMAL!!

We have a set of 7 mini animals on our prayer table.
Sadly one of the animals went missing yesterday, Wednesday, November 15th directly after a group of children were looking at them.

Parents,
If you find this little beaver puppet, please send it back with your child so that the set can be completed. The beaver is part of a set of sacred Indigenous animals used to teach the children about each of the seven virtues. We need a complete set.
Thank you for your cooperation,
God Bless,
Patricia Mackinnon
