BLOGFOLIO HOMEWORK..FOR PARENTS

BLOGFOLIO HOMEWORK..FOR PARENTS

Dear Parent/Guardian you have Blogfolio homework.  Please ask your child to LOGIN to their blogfolio so you have access to it.  I ask that you comment on ONE (or more, if you have some time) of the posts and ask your child to share with you some of the writing and topics they have learned about.  Please see instructions below.  As of October 23rd students SHOULD have at least 8-10 completed blog posts (topics are all in TEAMS).

Digital portfolios are assigned to individual students and are kept private. To access a digital portfolio, students must know their unique login and password information. Digital portfolios (Blogfolio) will be assessed each term.  Please see rubric on my website.   Parents/Guardians will have access to their child’s digital portfolio where they can see the learning process. This form of communication allows the student opportunities to practice self-assessment and ownership of their learning (an extremely important skill for this year). Students please login for your parent/guardian.

For homework this week, students will be asked to spend a few moments to review their Blogfolios with their parent/guardian. I ask that you take time this week to comment on one item of your child’s digital portfolio.   Please comment in their Blogs. Thank you!
