About the Author

Hello my name is Karen McKelvey and I am a 3rd grade teacher at Curie Elementary School in San Diego, California. I began teaching at Curie Elementary in 2002. I feel fortunate to be part of such a great community. I love blogging with my students as it provides them with an authentic audience for their work. Collaborative group work and project-based learning are key components of my classroom. I completed my Masters degree in Educational Technology from San Diego State University in 2010. Many of the concepts/pedagogy and technologies I learned about in this program, like learning management systems, Google tools, and blogs are implemented in my classroom. Technology plays a key role in the learning that occurs in our classroom. We don’t learn about technology, we learn with technology. Students are engaged in activities that incorporate writing, research skills, critical and creative thinking skills, and much more on a daily basis.

    G’day Mrs McKelvey and her frogs,

    We confused you. The commenting post was written by Mrs Waters this week because Miss Wyatt was working on a special event post that also needed to be published this week.

    Thanks for taking part again in the challenge.

    Hi Mrs.Mckelvey,
    I think that a perfect blog post is basically a blog post that is like a letter to someone.

    Dear Mrs.Mckelvey,
    Hello. This is Maya. I am commenting to the post:Let’s Comment! Very recently our class checked our classmate’s comments. Some did not have grammar, punctuation,word spelling, some were not relevant and worst of all some were not nice. Quite a few did not make it on the blog. If your comment does not have the things I listed below your comment might not make it on the blog. The first thing you should do is of course is try to make a connection to the blog so you can understand better and if you understand better then you can make a better comment. After you have written it all down look for spelling mistakes. People might not know what you said. If it was spelt wrong. Use proper grammer. People might not understand it. Use proper punctuation. People do not want to see run on sentences. Try to make conversation like: Hey I loved your blog about violas. I play the clairinet. Can you make a blog about clairinets? That is how you can make conversation. Most importantly always be nice do not say:Your comment was sooo boring!!
    That is rude. I hope you enjoyed my commment.
