You are encouraged to visit your classmates blogs and to leave 'two stars and a wish' (two positive comments and one suggestion). Remember to be specific and use the 'THINK' criteria. Peer to peer ‘talk’ is very powerful and if you use this opportunity effectively, you will see a real improvement in your writing. T (thoughtful) H (helpful) I (inspirational) N (necessary) K (Kind) There is a group called Team100. These are volunteers who follow a set of guidelines while reading and commenting on students' posts each week. It is fun to have an authentic, guaranteed audience besides your class teacher. Your paragraph might be the one chosen for the 'Special Showcase'. I like the fact that reluctant writers only have 100 words to write, while more advanced writers can really extend themselves with the word restriction. Enjoy your writing Division 5!
