We created a word cloud today of excellent words we can use instead of "said" in our stories, using a website called Tagxedo. Have a go! It's really easy to use.
www.tagxedo.com
Click Create, then Load your text (control and V will paste whatever you have copied) and have a play with the colours and shapes! You can save your cloud as an image (try 500kb) on your computer or print it out to hang up!

Commenting on our own blog and other classes blogs is fun. It is a great way to find out what other people are learning about.

Here are some rules to remember when you are commenting:
1)Only put in your first name.
2)You can put your classroom and school too.
3)If there is a photo or video of somebody, only use their first name.
4) You need to edit your comment. Does it make sense? Have you used capital letters and full stops?
5) Get your comment checked by an adult.
What makes a quality comment?
1) Tell them what you like about their post.
2)Tell them why you like their post.
3) You can tell them something it reminds you of.
4)You can ask a question about their post.
5) We always write a positive comment so that people always feel good about their learning.
