Mrs. Yollis' students are writing an informational text report. The report needs to include at least two text features. If you're not sure what a text feature is, mosey on over and watch the Nonfiction Text Feature video by Sheriff Yollis and Sheriff Salsich. will get you up to speed! 

A popular text feature is a photo and a caption. Visual images really help a reader understand. However, you cannot just take images. Good digital citizens look for the Creative Common License!

    A very important reminder to everyone about checking material and where it is from. A great resource to share with students and educators.

    I would also like to thank you so much for the comment that you left on our class blog for one of our students, Jorja, who wrote about catching eels on our farm.

    We were so excited to get such valuable feedback. We've just had another student make 5,000 page view so we had a discussion about Pageviews and audience. Before we had a visit to your blog we talked about numbers and I explained to my students that you had a lot. We thought that you might have had over a hundred thousand pageviews - imagine my students surprise that you are nearing two million.

    It is very humbling for a small school like ourselves in a very isolated location to get such wonderful feedback. We are thankful that you took the time to write a comment and we appreciate it very much. You are inspiring our students to blog.
