Mrs Yollis and her third grade class in California are our blogging buddies. Mrs Morris, Miss Jordan and their students have been good friends with Mrs Yollis’ class since 2009.
4KM and 4KJ skyped with Mrs Yollis on the last day of 2011 when they were just meeting their new teachers. Today the students had the chance to skype with Mrs Yollis again and meet her class!
There is a big time difference between California and Victoria. When we started the call it was
8:55am on Wednesday in Leopold, Australia
1:55pm on Tuesday in Los Angeles, USA

Since 4KM and 4KJ are learning about Australia this term they wanted to share some facts with Mrs Yollis’ class, and also find out some information about America.
Seventeen 4KM and 4KJ students had special jobs. The researchers and speakers were Maha, Lachlan, Leah, Brandon, Trent, Maddy, Millie, Skye, Clancy, Olivia and Becky. Adam and Libby were typists. The photographers were Kealee and Sophie. Patrick and Hannah were the greeters.
