Week 4: Positive-Thoughtful-Helpful blog comments

In Setoga class we enjoy leaving positive, thoughtful and helpful comments on other people's blogs. Sometimes we are so excited that we forget to do one of these things, so this week we are doing a blog commenting 'refresher'.

Here is an example of a positive, thoughtful and helpful blog comment that was written by Gargee.

Gargee has left a new comment on your post "3D Design":

Hola Mandita,

Great job Mandita. I also did TinkerCad and I used a cylinder to make the outside to, same with the rings! Did you have fun making your medal? Next time if you blog about 'TinkerCad', write it as TinkerCad, not TinkaCad. It might make people get mixed up with the names.

Kind Regards

The NED Show

This week we were lucky enough to have The NED show visit us. It was a phenomenal show that taught us how to be NED.  NED stands for...

Never give up
Encourage others
Do your best

Channing was the presenter who taught us how to be NED. It was an enthralling show that incorporated funny sounds, yo-yo's that were wicked cool and some awesome magic tricks.  For example Channing tore up a piece of tissue that illustrated how people can sometimes tear us down with mean words.  Then she ate the tissue and with some encouragement she some how connected it together to make a huge 12ft ribbon that just kept coming out of her mouth.  It was spectacular!  That is the beauty of encouragement.
