We started by watching a Youtube video made by Mrs Yollis’s class in the U.S.A about how to leave quality comments (you can view this video by clicking here). Following this we brainstormed the main points from the video and then added our own ideas.
We then put them all together and created a list of our own. This is what we came up with:
How to Write Quality Comments
- Read the previous comments first (so you don’t say the same thing)
- Start your comment with a greeting e.g Hi Michael and Peter
- Tell them what you specifically like about their piece of work and why
- Use correct punctuation – capitals, fullstops, commas etc
- Spell correctly (use a dictionary or Microsoft Word to help)
- Finish with a question if appropriate (this will start a conversation)
Below are some good examples of quality comments that helped us think:
Hi Bethany. What a great report. Your photos really helped me understand all about the water cycle. Do you ever get thunder and lightning in your area?
Dear John, I really loved reading about all the great things you did on camp. The story about your tent falling down was really funny! Thanks for sharing!
Hi Mary. What an interesting report. I really like the way you included lots of interesting information about the animals in your class. It must be fun looking after them. From Susan
