  2. Dear Mrs Yollis,

    It appears very difficult to choose every year. As there are some amazing blogs out in blog land.

    But in saying this you have done well picking.
    It really is so wonderful that you have picked Miriams Magical Moments for BB and I picked Miriam as well.

    As well as Mrs Hembree's Bulldog Readers Blog.

    It really does makes it very difficult when you can only pick one per category maybe the rules may change for nexted years edulog awards.

    All the very best Mrs Yollis to you too we think your blog is just tops!

    From AA. :)

  3. Dear Mrs. Yollis,

    It's such an honor to have you nominate my blog. I've learned so much from you, and am grateful that I'm part of your global community. It's a privilege to learn with you.

    I remember learning how to comment and use hyperlinks in comments from your blog... and you came to my blog to help me learn more, and give tips to improve my blog.

    Many thanks for all you do. You help so many!

    Your friend,
    Mrs. Watanabe

  4. Dear Mrs. Yollis,

    I appreciate you nominating my blog for best student blog. There are so many good student blogs that it is difficult to nominate just one. I also nominated you for the best class blog. You taught me many things about writing and blogging and my blog wouldn't have been as good without you.


  5. G'day Mrs Yollis,
    Thank you so much for your nomination of me as a lifetime achievement.

    It seems like I have been blogging for most of my life when in reality it it only since January 2008.

    Once you begin a blog, it is a life long activity and I am sure I will continue blogging once I retire from teaching at the end of this year.

    Again, many thanks for the nomination.

  6. Dear Mrs. Yollis and class,

    Thank you so much for your nomination! We're are honored to have been chosen by you and your class!

    I'm sure you will have many nominations. After a second place finish last year, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if you win this year!

    Best of luck! Have a great weekend.

    Mr. Avery and class
