Are there countries listed that are new to you? Use your atlas and tell us where they are located!


  1. Dear Mrs.Yollis,

    On your blog, the country of Canada visited second most compared to all the other countries. My favorite post on the blog is "Visit the Arctic Circle" because you have a picture of yourself staying up until midnight with the sun is still shining. What is your favorite post on the blog?

    Your friend,


  2. @ Nick,

    Thanks for a great comment! Yes, I noticed that Canada was our second largest visiting country. They are our neighbor to the north.

    Did you see any countries on the list that you’d never heard of? There must be one or two. Check through the list and build a dendrite!

    You said your favorite post was Visit the Arctic Circle!because you liked the midnight picture. I still have a hard time comprehending that it stays light for 24 hours during the summer.

    Thanks for your opinion!
    Mrs. Yollis

  3. Dear Mrs. Yollis,

    Thank you so much for commenting back to me on your awesome blog. I have never heard of Isle of Man, and I think I have just grown a dendrite. Have you heard of Isle of Man?


  4. @ Nick,

    You mentioned that someone who lives on the Isle of Man had visited our blog.

    Yes, I have heard of the Isle of Man. However, I didn't know much about it so...I went to World Book Online! You know, the one the PFC bought for us. I logged in with the username and password (I sent all parents that information by email.) and found out some interesting facts.

    While I was in World Book Online, I also searched "North America" since we just had that giant map. I found out that Niagara Falls is the most famous waterfall in North America. It is actually two waterfalls. More water passes over the falls than any other waterfall in North America. I just grew a few dendrites! Maybe we'll put that fact in our movie! See if you can find a fact or two for our North America movie.

    Thanks for being a wonderful contributor to our blog!

    Your friend,
    Mrs. Yollis

  5. Dear Mrs Yollis' Class,

    WOW!!! I cannot believe you have had 10,000 visitors! That is amazing and you should all be very proud of your hard work with your blog!

    I loved looking again at the fantastic song you recorded for my class back in April. Everyone in 2KM loved your video!

    I'm glad you got to look at photos of Langkawi as it is very beautiful.

    I arrived home at 1am this morning after an 8 hour flight from Kuala Lumpur. We had 2 nights in Kuala Lumpur (the capital of Malaysia) at the end of our trip and had lots of fun. Our Asian holiday was amazing and I'm so glad to have shared some of it with you all!

    Time zones are such interesting things to think about and it is fantastic to learn about this with blogging friends!

    Take care and congrats again on all your visitors!

    From your friend Miss McGeady

  6. @ Miss McGeady,

    We cannot believe we hit 10,000 either! This blog has been so great in many ways, but one of the highlights has been the friendships we've made! :-)

    When you get rested, we'd love to know, what was your favorite location? Did you eat any unusual foods?

    We looked up Langkawi in our atlases, and tomorrow we'll locate Kuala Lumpur.

    Thanks for the updates and welcome home! :-)

    Your friend,
    Mrs. Yollis

  7. @ Mrs Yollis,

    I think Langkawi was my favourite place. It is a beautiful island and I loved all the scenery. One of the highlights was swimming at some waterfalls. The beaches were also lovely and there are many places where you can snorkel. One of the interesting things about Langkawi is there are wild monkeys everywhere! You have to be careful not to leave food lying around or they might come and pinch it!

    I had some fantastic Chinese food at Hong Kong. Some of the most interesting things I ate were all sorts of dumplings. They make sweet and savoury ones with all sorts of fillings. Some were very tasty but some were not so nice! All the Asian noodles, stir-fries and curries were delicious!

  8. Dear Mrs. Yollis' class,
    I loved the hello song. It was spectacular.
    It's almost like our hello song. Again it
    was awesome.

  9. Dear Mrs. Yollis' Class,

    We have a hello song similar to that one but instead of putting the hello song on our blog we put Dreams of Harmony on our blog. I loved this song you guys sang because I liked the tune and when you guys put your hands together and bowed.
    Your blogging buddy Graham from Mr. Salsich's class.
