Wonderfully Wild Fun in Fifth Grade!

Creating our About Page


post written by Tracy Watanabe

In blogging, a page is different than a post. A page gives information about something such as information about your class or guidelines for being safe on the blog; while a blog post is about your thoughts, ideas, and reflections that you want to have a discussion about.

Explore these About Pages

Your first task is to explore the About Pages on the blogs listed below and answer the questions in the comments below:

  • What information do they tell you?

    I think we should tell people a little bit about us such as, what we enjoy about school and are favorite subjects. We should also tell people what kind of books we like.

    Our “About” page should contain all of the aspects of our classroom; including class projects, favorite books, what we want to accomplish this year in the classroom, and if we have any special field trips coming up. Our “About” section should be the most exquisite literary section on the internet!!!

    I think our about page should have all the things we like to do. I also we should put what state were at.

    I think we should have voki because we could tell them what we we are doing in our class. There is another thing i think we should have on our Blog is that we could tell them what’s our favorite book,food,games,apps,movies/TV shows,sports,and hobbies.
    That is what i want on the blog.

    I think for our class blog we should post pictures of science experiments\ projects if/when we have experiments or projects.We can also post social studies,then people can see what we do in class and other fun stuff.I also think you should take pictures of the field trip next week ,that would be cool also.
    We should post fun things we do in class.EX.learning about the heart,lungs,bones,and brain. Because someone might want to know about all that cool stuff.Post projects in class like our math(someone might want to know about the division if they were struggling with division.Same with our introduction paragraph,they might want to know facts on someone we are researching.I have so much more to say but it would take for ever to do.I hope you’ll find something good for our blog.

      Hi Zayden,

      I would love to read about those things going on in your class in your posts. I wonder if there’s a way to put a little of that in your About Page, but not have it too long to read. Can you think of a way?

      Kind regards,
      Mrs. Watanabe

    I think we should out were we are located, what we like to do, what our favorite things that we like to do.

    We should probably put some type of summary of interesting, juicy,fantastic,& that thing that you were talking about of sucking the reader into your story. So technicaly all i’m just saying is that you should talk about the greatest times about the gracious,lucky,troubling,& ridiculed times outside of school. I want to hear of your fanaminal life. Add chicken and flavor to your story soup.

    Thank you

    sincerely, Jacob

    Dear Mrs. Bean’s Class,

    I believe you came up with some fabulous ideas for Mrs. Bean. I wonder if she is going to write up her About Page based on your ideas, or if you’ll do it as a whole class, or if she’ll ask just a few of you to help write the Page.

    I look forward to seeing your About Page next time I come back.

    Kind regards,
    Mrs. Watanabe
