Welcome to Comments4Kids

Comments4Kids is a way for students and teachers to find blogs to comment on and to get their own posts commented on. It all started when Carey Pohanka, Derek Smith, and I had a conversation on Twitter about how to get people to comment on student posts. Here is a link to my post that explains what happened. Please note that Comments4Kids does not have to be on Wednesdays :)

Here are some links to get you started:

Suggested Rules for Commenting for Your Students
These are the rules I use with my students when we comment on posts.

Rules for Comments4Kids
1) Relevant
2) Positive
3) Comment only when you have something to say.

4) Always use good conventions (capitalization, punctuation, etc.)

If you participate in Comments4Kids add this badge to your site:
