Today Mrs. Yollis' class got a little more time with the 1:1 cart!
|First, students opened up Word.|
|After typing a quality comment, the students went up to Tools in the menu bar and selected Spelling and Grammar.|
|After fixing all the spelling and/or grammar errors, the students were given some information about their writing.|
|Grace's comment showed a grade level writing of beginning sixth grade!|
|Miriam's vocabulary pushed her up to an eighth grade level!|
|The next step was to copy the text.|
|Finally, the students pasted the quality comment into a blog comment section of their choice.|
