C4K Summary Post for April

Comments 4 Kids clipartFor April's C4K,  EDM310 students served as mentors in the WORLD BLOG CHALLENGE sponsored by Edublogs. We were assigned to a student's blog that we were to comment. This experience was a little upsetting to me because,  I actually looked forward to meeting new students each week.  However, I did enjoy reading my student's,Veronica, posts. She is from El Salvador. 

Post #1

In this post, Veronica shared a little about El Salvador. She gave us the hot spots that should be visited, like San Salvador; And, told us that the native language that is spoken is Spanish.  She also gave us some history on the country's flag.

Hi Veronica,
My name is Courtney Muse and I am a student in EDM310 at The University of South Alabama in Mobile, Alabama.

El Salvador sounds like a nice place. I have yet to visit, but it is a place on my list. From looking at pictures of El Salvador, I can tell it’s a beautiful country. I don’t think I could live there, I will get home sick because it’s so far from my family. You stated that your mother and father lives there, do you also live in El Salvador? Which language do you speak more fluently, English or Spanish?
I am going to be commenting on your blog for the next 3 weeks so hopefully you will have some new posts for me to read! I really enjoyed this one. Keep up the good work. I look forward to hearing back from you.

In this post, Veronica talks about the Sanata Parade. This parade is held annually on December 3rd in Chilliwack, Canada.  How she describes it, it's a parade of lights, music and pure family fun. It puts me in the mind of our own Madi Gras parade here in Mobile.

Hi again Veronica!

I enjoyed reading your post. The parade kinda sounds like an event that is held here where I live. It is called Mardi Gras. It is where a parade is held everyday for about two weeks. It consists of marching bands and colorful floats. People throw moon pies, colorful beads, candy, stuffed animals, etc. It’s two weeks filled fun and laughter. People come into town from all over. Here are some pictures for you to look at.

Post #3

In this post, Veronica gave step by step instructions on how to make a paper boat by using only pictures.  Her instructions were very thorough because, I made one using her instructions. 

Hi again Veronica,

Very creative! I loved how you used photos for your instructions. Cool! I remember when I was younger, I used to make things like this from paper. I can make a good paper plane! What else can you make?

Great post,
Courtney Muse
