Linking with Two Writing Teachers for a Slice of Life
SoL: Check your spelling
So my students are working on Edmodo. There is a free app called Storylines pages where kids have to write nice comments about each other. Every comment needs to be approved by the teacher before it can be published. It's a lot of work on the teacher because every comment for every student must be approved or rejected- meaning it gets kicked back to the student for revision. Once everyone finishes, it makes a nice book they can read.
So as the kids are working on their comments, I'm working on approving or rejecting comments. Some are great: " Thank you for being so helpful to me. I'm a new student and it means a lot." Some are not: "Your nice."
As I was reviewing comments, one really caught my eye. "K----, you are so condiment." What?!? I asked I---- what he meant. He looked at me and said "What? I said he was confident." Me: "Oh, maybe you better go back and revise your comment. You called him ketchup!"
