How the NPHC Blog Challenge Will Work
WHAT: A global blogging challenge for students between the ages of 6 and 12 and their teachers. We will be reading and blogging about The Not Perfect Hat Club, a book about the importance of finding and celebrating each child’s unique abilities.
NOTE: We are eager to explore including older students in the challenge as well. If you’d like to discuss, please contact Jena directly: JenaBall@CritterKin.com
WHEN: The #NPHCBlogIt Challenge will run for five weeks (with one week off for Thanksgiving break) beginning in November 2 and ending December 4th.
HOW: Each week, students will read three to four chapters of The Not Perfect Hat Club book. The #NPHCBlogIt team will have posted questions based on those chapters to encourage discussion and writing activities. Students will blog and/or Vlog, comment on one another’s posts, and post questions to the #NPHCBlogIt sites as well.
We will also be doing a limited number of Twitter and Skype visits (dates to be determined) that you and your students are welcome to attend. The more the merrier!
Sign Up and Participation: More details will be coming soon, so be sure to sign up here: http://goo.gl/forms/kVJKri5Z7m) posted.
Just prior to the start of the challenge, we will send you a #NPHCBlogIt badge that your students can print and wear proudly!
