Blogging is about reading, thinking, and responding.

Getting a comment can be like receiving a  little bouquet in your mailbox: a treat for the senses. ~ Unknown


  • Only use your first name when commenting or posting.
  • Make your comment worth reading.
  • Start a conversation.
  • Be positive, interested, and encouraging.
  • If you disagree, be polite about it.
  • Connect with the post: be on topic.
  • Re-read your comment before you hit submit–think before you send!
  • Aim for correct spelling, punctuation, and grammar.
  • Don’t use chat or texting language like lol, i, or u.
  • No “Hi! Visit my blog! Bye!” comments. Be thoughtful.
  • If you are a guest student include your blog url so we can visit your class blog. If we are commenting on someone elses blog include either the ClasstapKids url ( or if  you are a 7th or 8th grader then include your own url.
  • Keep your privacy: no personal or identifying information about you, your family, or your friends. Don’t give out last names, school name, phone numbers, user names, or places and dates you can be found.
