I had a difficult time with this post – which was surprising to me. Through my Pinterest browsing, I stumbled across another teacher’s blog post about getting her second graders to write more. Although she made some good points, she also left me with an “uh oh” feeling and had my mind buzzing with questions. Surprisingly, I used the Common Core as a basis for one argument, despite my issues I have with them (discussed here).
This is my comment:
There is always a little hesitation for me when commenting on another blog, especially if I disagree with something. So much can be read between the lines, whether it is meant or not. Tone doesn’t always come across appropriately in comments, texts, posts, and emails. So this #kinderblog14 challenge was just that, a challenge, for me!
