To start our November Blog Challenge, each student was assigned a paragraph to post by November 4th, the start date. The paragraph is a self-introduction. However, no one knows when their paragraph will be posted and no names should be included so each introduction is a bit of a mystery. Hence the challenge!

Why do a blog challenge?

  • Provide authentic reasons to write well because our audience is a public one.
  • Increase motivation to read and write.
  • Build student relationships as a result of sharing in meaningful ways.
  • Create a positive digital footprint.
  • Develop appropriate on-line etiquette.

How does it work?

  1. Everyday in November, for 27 consecutive days, starting November 4th, the challenge is to try to guess the Blogger.
  2. Read the new paragraphs daily and search for clues you may know about your classmates.
  3. Enter your guess by clicking on the comment button under the post.
  4. Type the number, followed by your guess, and write your first name only followed by submit comment.
  5. If you don't see you comment right away, don't worry Mrs. Ross must approve it before it goes public. So remember your capital letters!
  6. Finally all of the names will be revealed at the end of the month.
