  1. Hello Mrs. Yollis,

    I voted for you, Ross Mannle, Jaden, and a lot of other people! I thought it was exciting to vote and it made me feel good to vote for friends. How many votes do you have so far? Is it nice to be voted for?

    I hope you win!



    1. @ Peter,

      I voted for a lot of people like you! They are: Mr. Mannell, Miriam, Mrs. Yollis (on Best Class Blog), Mrs. Yollis again (but on Influential Post: Family Blogging Month), Sarah, and other blogs/posts I forgot! What is your favorite blog?

      I think it is nice to be voted because if you have enough votes, you will win a reward (online). Do you think Mrs. Yollis will win?


    2. @ Peter and Heather,

      Thanks so much for supporting our blog and our friends! It is exciting to have this online competition. However, everyone wins through the process because we all become more connected through the nominations. I've already learned about some new blogs I'd never heard of before.

      We will find out who the top winners are when they announce it online on December 12 at 4:00 P.M. The Edublogs have an online awards ceremony! Would you like to attend and be a part of the fun?

      Mrs. Y♥llis
