This post is taken from the 2KM Blog. HTML is not something you would normally teach to 7 and 8 year olds but there are some very keen bloggers in 2KM and they loved learning a few basics!

Last year, our friend, Mrs Yollis, taught her students how to use HTML code in their comments as a reward for great commenting.

Miss McGeady thought it was time today to teach the students in 2KM how to use some HTML code to take their comments to the next level!

We looked at Mrs Yollis’ post about HTML code to find out what HTML is all about!

*************

HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) is a special computer language. You can build a whole website out of HTML but you can use HTML in your comments to use things like italics, bold and hyperlinks by using special symbols. It is somewhat easy to learn HTML and, with a bit of practice, you’ll have your comments standing out and looking great in no time!

The following symbols are needed for HTML…

The less than symbol <

The greater than symbol >

The backslash /

Use these keys on the keyboard below for HTML code…

(Note, you will need to hold down shift to use < and >)

keyboard

ITALICS

To make words italic, use this HTML code around the text

<i>text</i>

eg. I <i>love</i> blogging!

The text will look like this…

I love blogging!

BOLD

To make text bold, use this HTML code around the text

<b>text</b>

eg. I <b>love</b> blogging!

The text will look like this…

I love blogging!

LINKS

If you want to put a link or hyperlink in your comment, it gets a bit trickier.

Here is the code…

linkhtml

The URL is the address of the web page. It starts with http://

For example, if I want to link to the 2KM blog I would write…

<a href=”http://2kmblog.globalstudent.org.au/“>2KM Blog</a>

It would turn out like this

2KM Blog

HTML Code may seem tricky to start with but it will get easier with a little practice! Give it a go!
