  1. Dear Mrs Yollis,

    Let me begin by saying thank you sooo much for yesterday Skyping with me and 2KM and 2KJ.
    For the first time ever I was lost for words.
    I really enjoyed the Christmas book you read. As a matter of fact I am still smiling.
    Now good luck with the Edublog awards. I really hope you do well!!
    However by getting just short listed and this far you are already winners!!

    Enjoy now I do have to ask if you do win how will you celebrate?
    BB and I and her dad have already had a small celebration when she first got nomimated. (Thankyou and Mrs Lynch) Then we had another party when she got short listed. So if she wins I feel we need to make a trip to visit you and your students Mrs Yollis so that we can have one huge celebration. Do like this concept Mrs Yollis. ha! ha!

    All the best,
    from your blogging buddy A♥A.

  2. Dear Mrs. yollis,

    WOW! I really can not belive we won two times! I thought that was amazing. I knew we were going to win once but I did not know that we were going to win twice. It is so amazing that we can participate a lot because If we did not participate a lot we would never win. I always celebrate when I win something because everyone thinks that I deserve it.

    Thanks so much!

    I have some questions for you:

    Is this your first time winning?

    Have you ever celbrated when you win something?

    Again thanks so much!

  5. Dear Mrs Yollis,

    As I have already said to you I was thrilled and overwhelmed to hear of your three wins. What an achievement!
