Wow! Grade 6, you did an awesome job on your investigate reflections!
As I was reading your posts, I kept track of some of the posts that really demonstrated thoughtful, thorough and detailed writing so you could see some great examples. Everyone did a great job, but here are some that really stood out:

Selecting and Completing Your Blog Design
This week we are focusing on completing your blog design. Here’s what we’re going to do:
- Bring your designs to class (you should have drawn at least three).
- Share your designs with a partner and choose which one represents you best – make sure your design is also realistic, and something you can actually create.
- Once you have chosen your design, you need to add some information:
- On the back of your design write the name of the blog theme from WordPress
- On the back of your design write a short paragraph describing how this blog represents you. What makes this design the best choice for you?
- On the front of your design, label each part. Make sure you label the: Blog Title, Tagline, Header Image, Menu Navigation, Post Title, Post Author, Post Publish Date, Blog Post, Widgets
Your completed design should look something like Kiyoka’s on the front (with all the labels), and have a paragraph on the back answering the questions above.
Starting Your How to Grow a Blog Worksheet
Once you have completed your labeling and your designs are ready to go, you can start working on your How to Grow a Blog worksheet. This worksheet is all about planning. You have a long-term goal (what you want your blog to look like in June), a short term goal (what will you do right now to start your blog off right), and mid-term goals (what will you do to keep your blog growing all year). If you don’t finish this in class, you can complete it for homework.
To earn a 5 – 6: Make sure you:
- have included responses for all three sections
- your responses are extremely thorough, thoughtful and detailed ideas for developing your blog.
