  1. Dear 4KM and 4KJ,

    I am excited to spend the week learning about all of you! My third grade class met several of you when we Skyped and during Our QuadBlogging Week.

    As you might have guessed, I am Mrs. Y♥llis! I live in California and was born in Montana. For the past twenty-five years I have been an elementary school teacher, and I’ve loved every minute of it. When I’m not teaching I like to read, play with our new dog, Buck, and travel.

    Last year, I went to Hawaii on vacation. Swimming and snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles made the trip so memorable. Here is a video I made with some of my fish friends!

    • Dear Mrs Yollis,

      Thank you for writing a comment on our blog! You are a great blogger and a quality writer!

      You have been teaching a very long time. It tells me that you love teaching. Buck is very cute! I love reading aswell in my free time!

      I would like to go to Hawaii. It sounds like you had a fun time there. I liked the video.

      In my free time I like to blog, read, go on my bike and catch up with friends.

      What do you like the best about teaching?

      Your blogging buddy from down under,

      Skye ♥

      • @ Skye,

        What a well-written response! You are a terrific writer!

        You asked what I like best about teaching. I love watching students learn…it brings me great satisfaction! For example, the students come to me in September and by this time of year, most are writing fabulous sentences full of descriptive writing. I love that!

        What would you like to be when you grow up?

        Your friend,
        Mrs. Y♥llis

        • Dear Mrs. Y♥llis,

          What a great reply. You are a role model.

          Your favourite thing about teaching sounds great! I love descriptive writing.

          When I grow up I would like to be a teacher, singer, actor or netball player. I just can’t decide but luckily I don’t need to decide now.

          Skye ♥

    • Hello Mrs. Yollis,

      In my free time I like to watch T.V. as much as possible. (If there actually is something good to watch.) but on the other hand if I cannot watch T.V. I usually try to amuse myself.

  5. Dear 4KM and 4KJ,

    Great post!

    Wow, you have a lot of students in your class. I am guessing that you have 26 students in each class. Even though some of your students are new to blogging, they still are very good at it. In third grade you are about 9 or 8 years old. Etai is 9 years old and Parsa is 8 years old.

    Parsa’s favorite sport is basketball. Etai likes to play soccer. Etai started when he was two, and Parsa started at the age of six.

    What is your favorite sport?

    When did you start playing your favorite sport?

    We think that Mrs. Morris and Miss Jordan have been commenting for a long time. Now they are great commenters.

    If you have been commenting for more than 1 year how many years have you been commenting?

    Parsa & Etai (Yollis)

    • Dear Parsa and Etai,
      Thank you for commenting on our blog. I’m eight years old.
