The RI Children's Book Award (RICBA) Blog

Click on the RICBA symbol to visit the RICBA blog link.  It's a fun place to read comments written by other students in the state.  You can contribute a book review also ... but we need to pay attention to the guidelines written on the side of the blog page as well as Stone Hill rules for writing a blog post.  Show Ms. Manion your review before posting.  

 

Go explore the blog.

The book reviews will get you excited, the pictures are GREAT, and you'll want to start blogging right away!

BUT           

... you need to pay ALOT of attention to the GUIDELINES section on the right side of the blog. 

Orchard Farms students are asked to be very positive and share information from the story when writing a review.

  • You will be entering your book review on a special web form not on the blog.  I need to see it first (that is, I need to VERIFY your work).
  • Your book review needs to be POSITIVE.  You need to write your review on a book that you liked.  It's easy to tell something about a book you didn't like, but it's more interesting to be positive and to try to convince other people to read a book.
  • Your book review will need to be at least 5 sentences.
  • Most Important:  Make sure that your book review is something you would be proud to show your GRANDMOTHER.  Nothing in bad taste.  Nothing mean.
  • NEVER post your full name!  Use your first name ONLY and your grade. Include our school name too.

This is something that will make us proud!
