  1. Dear Mrs. Ranney and class,

    We visited Mr. Carson's blog and enjoyed reading about the class and the teacher.

    They live in a rural town in Ontario, Canada. If you click on the About page you can take a tour of their town!

    The town is called Mt. Pleasant, but there is no mountain. Funny, no?

    Have fun exploring! I'll be curious to hear which blogs people like and why!

    Your blogging buddy,
    Mrs. Y♥llis

  2. Dear Mrs. Ranney,
    I went on to Ms Tieppo's 2T blog from Australia. I liked their idea of Cultural Day.I like it because they can learn about cultural things.

  3. Dear Mrs. Ranney,

    I left a comment on the World Star Academy blog.

    World Star Academy is located in Southern California.

    I learned numerous facts about George Washington. The most interesting is that he had dentures made of ivory and animal teeth.

    Your student,

  4. @Ella and Aidan, I am so glad to see that you successfully took the challenge!
    Ella, Cultural Day sounds very interesting. I will have to visit Ms. Tieppo's blog to read more about it.
    Aidan, I am impressed with the facts that you learned about George Washington. World Star Academy's Blog sounds very informative!
    Keep up the great work, you two!
    Mrs. Ranney

  5. Dear Mrs.Ranney,

    I went on Mrs.Yollis's blog.I loved
    their hats! They have cool hats.
    Your bunny student,

  6. Dear Mrs. Ranney:

    I went on Mr. Carson's blog. I thought it was so cool that I could "drive" down Mt. Pleasant Road [using the "street view" on the map]. Do we have that on our blog? If not, could we add it?

    Your Student,


  7. Dear Mrs. Ranney,

    I visited three blogs but only commented on two. I thought that they were awesome. I hope that a lot of people comment on our blog!

    Your Student,

  8. @Ariel,I'm glad you visited Mrs. Yollis' blog and enjoyed their lucky hats!
    @Leah, I am really interested in the map you mentioned from Mr. Carson's blog. I'll have to check that out and see if it's possible to add it to ours.
    @Jamie, I'm glad you visited some other blogs. How about telling about them? Which ones did you visit? What did you say in the comments you left?

    Mrs. Ranney

  9. Dear Mrs. Ranney,
    I learned some interesting facts on Mr. Carson's blog.


  10. @Justin, I'm very glad you went on Mr. Carson's blog and learned some facts. How about sharing what they were?

  14. Dear Mrs.Ranney,
    I visited three blogs. I commented on all three. I liked all of the blogs a lot! Not as much as ours though. I like our blogs the best. I liked reading the facts that some of the blogs had on there blog. I can't remember any facts though because they were so good. I have some questions for you.

    Have you been on all of the blogs that you know?

    Do you like having a class blog? I do. I think it is really fun that I have a class blog.

    Your Student,

  15. Dear Mrs. Ranney,

    I ♥ blogs!

    Since we started the Ugandan Global Project, I feel like I have visited a lot of blogs. I also enjoy commenting on the Reading Round Up blog.

    I can't wait to write my own post and have people comment on it! :)

    I hope you like blogs as much as I do!


  16. Dear Mrs. Ranney,

    This is Carly and Jamie.

    We have both enjoyed blogging very much. Our favorite part about blogging is starting conversations with new people. We have commented on several posts on different blogs.

    We have really enjoyed having a class blog, and we hope that the posts get even more interesting. We are also so excited to put up our own post. We think that being able to make our own post is superb. We cannot wait until we see how our own post turns out.

    Happy Holidays!

    Carly and Jamie:)

  17. Dear Mrs. Ranney,

    Happy New Year!
