Colourful comments from South Australia:
“Knowing that there are people out there who read my texts encourages me to write more.” – Jennieva, yr 6
“Receiving comments on my 100 word challenge has definitely helped with my writing. Hearing other people’s opinions is fantastic because they might notice a flaw that didn’t even cross my mind!” – Ella, yr 7
“I love doing the 100wc because it helps me to write more and not think as much about what I have to write about. Along with that it helps me with my spelling and I have learned where to put my punctuation. I love getting comments. I loved it even more when I got the show case for week 7″ – Harry R, yr 5
“One of the things I have learnt is that you don’t have to write a long text for it to be good quality.” – Eliza, yr 5
“It has improved my ability to write stories about a random topic. I also love getting comments from people on my posts.” Harry H, yr 6
“My writing has improved I’m writing lots more. The areas I have improved in are spelling and vocabulary. When I received my first comment I was happy and I act on it if someone says you should try not to start your story with ‘one day’… ” – Jye, yr 5
“I like the one hundred word challenge because of the prompts. They challenge you to write different things every week and give you the challenge of writing a certain amount of words.” – Zoe, yr 6
