  1. Dear Mrs. Yollis,
    I really enjoyed family blogging month. I am very honored that so many of my family members commented and helped me win the contest. My favorite part was finding out who commented each day at school. My grandparents and uncle and family friends all commented for me. Overall everyone really liked the Eaglecam post and seeing what we are doing in our class.

    Thank you for such a fun project.

  2. Dear Amitai,Nic and Ben,

    Congratulation you are all great winners!

    I just loved reading all your family comments. Mind you I did learn from them too.

    I really love the family month for it only seemed like yesterday when Bianca was in Mrs Morris grade and she had a family blogging month. It was great as for many of our family members had no idea about blogging. As a matter of fact many thought is was some sort of a baord game. However after the blogging month they all know what blogging is all about which is great.

    Thanks for another wonderful blogging family month Mrs Yollis cannot wait for the nexted one.

    From your pal,

  3. Dear Mrs Yollis and Grade 3
    What a wonderful result for your family blogging month- 600 comments is a lot!
    It's great to think that there are so many keen new blog commenters out there now.

    I'm thinking we might have to try something similar in B4 during the winter, families might enjoy having a new family activity to do inside on cold days.

    your blogging friend

  4. Hi Miss Yollis!
    I am Amy and I am from mr. Miller's class. I have never heard of Family Blogging Month before. It sounds interesting. Congrats to the winners.

  5. Dear Mrs. Yollis,

    I loved FBM! It was so fun and it was worth having a second one. I wish we could have another FBM in June! Did you like your first or second Family Blogging month better, this school year.

    Dear Family,

    Thank you so much for supporting me this much in the month of April. Just to let you know, we got 39 comments this month just from our family! Please give yourself a round of applause.


    P.S. Congratulations to Ben, Amitai, and Nick!

  6. Dear Mrs. Yollis and class,

    Congratulations Nic, Ben, and Amatai! You and your family are great bloggers.

    I really enjoyed Family Blogging Month. I had fun leaving comments and so did my family.

    What I liked most about Family Blogging Month was seeing who in my family would leave a comment. My favorite post during family blogging month was about fads. It was really interesting to see different fads from years ago.


  7. Dear mrs.Yollis. I really enjoyed the post and it was very interesting. In our school we don't have any events like that. I hope we have a event like that in our school.
    It is a really good project.

    Thank you

    Thank you
