About Us

post written by Tracy Watanabe

Reading an “About” page on a blog can give you information about the blog about who they are.

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.

    To Mrs. Tucker,
    I think you should talk about art on Friday and Daily5. When you do an about page add detail or information. Also check for understanding when you do a blog post. You can make a game so the kids in your class will remember. To remember to check for understanding. Go down to the questions and ask the class on any day.

    You have to say the answer.

    1 What should I do at the end of a question?
    2 What should you do if you forgot to check for understanding?
    3 What happens if you don’t put a space? What should you do?
    4 What should you do if you read someone a question and you didn’t read with fluency or check for understanding. What else should you do?

    From,
    Em in your class

    Hello class,

    While exploring the About Me pages of the blogs included in this post, I discovered that the classes have 18, 22, and 23 students. I also learned that the students are different ages: kindergarten all the way to eight years old.

    When I looked at the blogs, I liked how happy all of the students looked and how much fun they were having. It looks like they are all friends!

    I think it would be great if Mrs. Tucker wrote about all of your pets on your class About Me page. It would also be interesting to know what your favorite book is!

    I look forward to learning more about your class and following you through the year on your class blog.

    Have a nice day,
    Emily, Easton’s mom
