QuadBlogging Begins! Week 1

Mrs. Yollis' class enjoys sharing and learning with other classes. This year, they are QuadBlogging buddies with three other classes! For the next four weeks, these classes will connect and learn about each other.

Here is a fabulous video we made last year explaining how QuadBlogging works! QuadBlogging was invented by @deputymitchell. Learn more about Quadblogging here.

Mrs. Yollis' class will start the process!

*     *     *     *     *

Mrs. Yollis' class is an enthusiastic group of third graders. There are twenty-five students in the class, and they live in a suburb of Los Angeles, California.  Students enjoy learning and meeting other classroom bloggers. The class maintains two blogs, Mrs. Yollis' Classroom Blog and the Yollis' 366 Project.  The 366 project is a daily digital documentation. Anyone, including YOU, can submit a photo of the day. Just email Mrs. Yollis an interesting photo with some text to accompany the shot!

We have two blog mascots, Panda and Beverly. Panda is a polite, punctual, panda who enjoys pole-vaulting. Beverly is big and un-bear-ably cute. Although bears only hibernate in the winter, she seems to go into a deep sleep quite often! 

Mrs. Yollis' students have been in school since August 2011, so they have numerous posts in the blog archive. 
(An archive is a list of past posts published. Hey, that's alliteration!
The archive is located in the sidebar.)

Here are some class recommendations to help you 
get to know Mrs. Yollis' bloggers!

Madison recommends that you check out Poly-gone from our 366 Project. Here you will see Mrs. Yollis' new puppy, Buck, helping her grade the geometry tests!

Parsa and Brenden recommend Orange You From California?  They like this post from our class 366 project because it has a pun in the title. Plus, the fabulous photo was taken by guest photographer, Mrs. Morris! 

  Sarah and Kelly recommend another 366 post called Seed Pod or Mr. Green. It features Buck, Mrs. Yollis' new puppy, making a judgement about what to eat.

  Ellie recommends a post that features her dad. It is called Fire Safety With Ellie's Dad. This an important post for all to read!

  Alyssa and Leila recommend our 100,000 Visitors post! We created a movie to welcome in a new place value position...the hundred thousands place!

Parsa and Brenden are back with one more recommendation. Check out Skyping With 4KM and 4KJ. Learn about Australia and the United States. We look forward to meeting B4 and Skyping with Mr. Salsich's class again!

Sasha thinks that you should check out Google Earth Geometry. See how we investigated our nation's capital, Washington, D.C., while identifying 2 and 3-D features!

  Beverly recommends you check out her post called Beverly's a Pirate! (Do so at your own risk!)

  Mrs. Yollis' recommends you take a look our student blogs. So far, six students have earned their own blogs by demonstrating responsible work habits and regularly participating in our class blog.

  Panda recommends that you watch this video.  He says you will learn FIVE tips to help you compose a quality comment! Remember it is important to make a good impression when leaving a comment.

Tips for writing a quality comment:

1. Compliment the writer in a specific way.
2. Make a connection
3. Add relevant information.
4. End with a question if you'd like to start a conversation.
5. Proofread! (Anything underlined in red is probably misspelled.)

We look forward to meeting everyone and getting some conversations going!

Please leave us a comment telling us about yourself! 

Feel free to ask questions!


  1. Dear Mrs Yollis and class,

    Wow this is just great that you are quad blogging once again with your pals.
    Somehow I have got the feeling that you are all going to learn heaps from each other.

    I am so looking forward to reading all about what you have learnt from each other, but the best thing of all is while you are all learning is the friendships that are been formed.

    Happy Quad Blogging everyone.

  2. Dear Mrs Yollis and class,

    A new QuadBlogging adventures begins. The quadblog posts I've seen have been fantastic in the past so I know there will be some great posts with the new quadblog.

    Your instructional videos are wonderful, particularly the video clip explaining how to write quality comments. Commenting is a great way to show others you've read their posts and thought enough to leave a comment.

    I hope I have the chance to visit some of your posts soon.

    Do you know what topics or activities you will be dealing with in posts? It's exciting to wait and see what will happen. :)

    Teacher, NSW, Australia

    1. Dear Mr. Mannell,

      Thank you for leaving our class a comment! QuadBlogging is one of our favorite things about blogging. You get to learn about three different classes!

      You are right, blogging is wonderful way to show the other person that you are reading their posts.

      Usually, in quadblogging, you see posts about what the other class is learning, or interesting activities that they really enjoyed.

      Hope to hear from you on Leila's blog, Leila's Lounge, and Mia's blog, Mia's Marvelous Moments.

      I am Parsa, and I like playing basketball. In fact, I play on an after school team every Tuesday. The coach is teaching me how to protect the ball from being stolen from the other team. He says to hold the ball tightly and pivot way from the opponent.

      I sure will leave you more comments.

      From your pal,

  11. Dear Mrs Yollis and class,

    Hi I'm Jess from 4KJ! I am really looking foward to do some quad blogging with you guys!

    I have really wanted to ask you some questions so here I go
    When you are shopping do you see any pop stars or any body famous?

    What do mostley do in class and is it fun?
    Do you have a very big school and do you have an oval?

    Also here are some things about myself,

    My favourite colour is black.

    My favourite food is prawn crackers.

    From your blogging buddy

    1. @ Jess,

      Wow! You are a fabulous blogger! What a comment!

      Yes, we both have seen celebrities. We've seen Derick Fisher and Jack Black.

      We are learning about perimeter and area, and it is very fun. Area is measured in square units. To learn about area, we made squares. For example, we made a square inch, a square foot, a square yard, and even a square meter. Maybe Mrs. Yollis will let us build them again, and we can make it the photo of the day.

      The population of our school is around 584 students. We do not have a big play area. What is an oval?

      Here is a little information about us. Both of us love the color/colour black. We also adore chocolate with peanut butter. Here in America you can buy a candy called Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, and it is a mixture of both. Yum! Have you ever had a Reeses?

      What are prawn crackers?

      What are you learning in school, and is it fun?

      ⚔ Rexon and Sammy ⚓

    2. Hi Sammy and rexon,

      Thankyou for calling me a fabulous blogger and I think you guys are fabulous bloggers too!

      Wow you saw Jack Black once. Also who is Derick Fisher?

      It also sounds like you two like learning about perimeter and area. I also hope she lets you build them again.

      You guys have 584 kids that is alot. My has around about 700 and something. That is a bit sad that you guys dont have a big play area. For our school we have a very big play area. We have a bit of a play area for nearly each year level.

      An oval is a big oval of grass that you can play sports on and all other kinds of things.

      You both like the colour black too. I also love chocolate. Reeses sound yum and I've never had them.

      Prawn crackers are something that you can get with Chinese food in Australia.[they are very yum.]

      I am lerning about Australia and decimals and it is so FUN!


  12. Dear Mrs Yollis and Class

  14. Dear Mrs Yollis and class,

    My name is Sophie and I am in 4KJ.
    I am looking foward to doing quad blogging with you.
    This is the second year my class has had a blog
    but last time my class had a blog we didn't do much blogging.

    Here are some things about me:
    I live in a family of 4,
    My favourite colour is blue,
    My favourite food is nachos,
    I like to do athletics,
    I do lots of swimming.

    Here are some questions:
    Have you done quad blogging before?
    Is this the first time you have had a blog?

    From your blogging buddie,

    1. @ Sophie,

      Thank you for leaving our class a comment! No, this is not the first time our class has done quad blogging. Our class quad blogged with Our World, Our Stories

      Our world our stories was a blog with a lot of classes and we shared things about our state or country. For example, when It was our week, we chose popular songs, so every class would pick a popular song from their state or country. Each class got to know a lot about all of the classes at the end because most students and teachers commemted and asked a lot of questions.

      Here are some things about me:

      ∆ I am in a family of four. I have a brother, mom, and dad

      ∆ My favorite color/colour is vibrant purple

      ∆ My favorite food is frozen yogurt and crab

      ∆ My hobbies include doing gymnastics, playing soccer, dancing, and playing the piano

      That's what happened to me. When I was in Mrs. Levy's class in 1rst grade, we had a class blog, but we didn't really go on the blog that much. At the end of each day, we would do a class comment on what we did. The most people that commented was the parents. Not the students.

      Is this your first quad blogging?

      From your blogging buddy,

    2. Dear Mia,

      Thank you for replying to my comment.
      By how you explained quad blogging it
      sounds like lots of fun. What is your
      favourite part about quad blogging?

      Yes, this is my first time quad blogging.

      From your blogging buddie,

    3. @ Sophie,

      I think that this is a wonderful conversation! That is one of the reasons why I love quadblogging. You get to communicate and have conversations, like this one.

      If this is your first time quadblogging, then you are REALLY good at it! The first time I quadblogged, I barely left any comments. I would leave one in one week. Now that I am better at blogging, I leave one almost everyday.

      My ultimate favorite thing about quadblogging, is going on other people's blog. I like seeing different posts that I have never seen. That interests me a lot. And that goes for regular blogging too. I like to go on different blogs. For example:

      BB's Awesome Blog,


      Mr. Salsich's Class Blog.

      Your blogging buddy,

  15. Dear Mrs. Yollis and class - My name is Bonnie and I live in Whitefish, Montana. I have gone back to school to get my K-8 teaching credential and am currently enrolled in an Instructional Technology course. I am featuring your blog for my current project, it is so wonderful and I have learned so much from you! I love how active the students are with the blog and all the technology they use on a regular basis. The 'Polygon' movie was terrific, it helped me quite a bit with my Geometry class! Thank you for producing such a wonderful blog.

    Whitefish, Montana

    p.s. I have included the Latitude and Longitude of Whitefish, Montana in case you want to look it up using Google Maps. 48° 24' 40" N / 114° 20' 12" W

    1. @ Bonnie,

      Thanks so much for a wonderful comment! Good luck with your studies! What kinds of things are you learning in the Instructional Technology course?

      I know exactly where Whitefish, Montana, is because I was born in Montana! Townsend, Montana, is the place of my birth! My family moved to California when I was quite young, but I still have a lot of family in Lewistown, Montana, so I have been back throughout my lifetime.

      I'm glad you enjoyed the Polygon movie. We had fun making it, but more importantly, we learned about polygons.

      What age would you like to teach?

      I like to play Legos too. I have the Harry Potter Hogwarts castle, Indiana Jones sets, and Spongebob sets. I like sweets too. My favorites are strawberry ice cream, brownies, popsicles, and lollipops. I am 8 years old.


  18. Dear Mrs Yollis and Grade 3
    I like the movies that you make, especially the ones on Make New Friends and I like the mascots. Beverley falls asleep all the time because she hibernates in the winter. Hedgehogs hibernate in the winter too.

    Do you have hedgehogs in America?

  28. Dear everyone,
    I cant wait to blog with you on Friday, I'm so excited!I love skype, my brother has it but he never uses it,so I'm always wondering why he has it?

    your blogging buddy,

    1. Dear Bronte,

      My name is Sasha. I am nine years old. My favorite food is crab and lobster. My favorite candy is pretty much every single candy in the world! I live in a family of four, my mom, dad, and my brother. My brother's name is Ethan, my mom's name is Joy, and my dad's name is Robert (Rob for short).

      I am excited for the Skype too! My favorite part about Skype is that you get to meet people around the world! For example, my babysitter and I Skyped with her cousin in Israel!

      What is your favorite part about Skype?

      Best wishes,

    2. @ Bronte,

      Thank you for leaving our class a comment! For you, it will be Friday, but for us, it will be Thursday. Which is today. But anyway, we are really ecstatic too!

      We both have via Skype and we chat with our friends and Skype. It is really fun! That's how we keep in touch without having a play date.

      Some people have an account, but they don't really go on because you and the person that you want to Skype with or chat, both have to be online.

      Hope you leave a comment on my blog!

      (Mrs. Yollis' student)

  29. Dear Mrs. Yollis and class,

    I'm so glad to see you all started up quad blogging again! It's always a fun time to get to learn about a class in detail! You're paired up with some amazing classes as well!

    I love how you all shared suggestions for what others should check out. It made it really easy to search through some of your favorite things!

    I look forward to seeing what else you have to share!

    Mr. Avery

    1. Dear Mr. Avery,

      Thank you so much for leaving us a quality comment! I visited your blog and saw the post that you did on the spelling bee. I think it is very cool, that you have a real spelling bee just like on television. In our school, we get a list of words to practice and then we take a spelling test. If you get 100 percent, then you get a medal. I got 100 percent. I was very happy. I think the way your school does it is better.

      Here is a little about myself:

      My name is Sarah and my favorite colors are pink and blue.

      I have my own blog and it is called Come Somersault With Sarah. I think blogging is important because it teaches you how to write and type. The fun thing about blogging is when you get to meet different classes from all around the world. I hope you will continue to leave us some quality comments!
