  1. Dear Winners,

    Congratulations to Ella, Jamie, Carly and Aidan.

    @Ella, I thought you did a great job on every comment you wrote. They were exquisite!!

    @Jamie, also like Ella, I thought that your comments were amazing. Great Job!!

    @Carly, I loved all of your comments. They were all fantastic!!

    @Aidan, I can't believe that you got so many family members involved. I haven't ever seen so many comments in just one month!! Also, spectacular job!!

    @ All winners, I really think all of you did the best ever. I'm trying to use different describing words!!

    Your Friend,
    Leah :)

  2. Dear Mrs. Ranney,

    I'm so glad I'm a winner! For the people who did not win, you could win it next time.

    The part I liked most is that family members can see what we are learning about in class.

    One of the family members that left a comment is my mom. My grandma, aunt, and dad all commented too. I really felt ecstatic when everyone commented.

    My family enjoyed it by knowing what I (their child or relative) was learning about and knowing that I have a good resource for practicing my writing. They were all impressed.

    Your student,

  3. Dear Mrs. Ranney and class,

    I was happy to be named the top combined blogger.

    I loved reading my family's comments and reading others comments.

    My Mom, Dad, brother and sister, Grammy and Grampy and Auntie Nadia and Uncle Brett, Auntie Stacey and Auntie Lauren left comments. I was excited to read their comments.

    My family liked blogging. I even blogged from our trip to Mexico.

    All the best,

  4. Dear Jamie,Ella,Carly,and Aidan,
    Great job! I am so happy that you won. I think you are amazing students! Congratulations! I think it is a vast accomplishment that you won.


  5. Dear Mrs.Ranney,
    On Family Blogging Month I liked that
    families got together.My mom and grandparents blogged,and it made me feel good. Yes, my family liked Family
    Blogging Month.

  6. Dear Aidan,
    We are so happy that you are the number 1 winner in the class. We wish we were the the number 1 too.
    Maybe next month, we'll write more comments.
    Do you know what restaurant you get to go? Who of you family commented? Do you think your family is going to be proud of you? We think they will. How many stickers did you get for Family Blogging Month? What blog post are you going to do for your free choice post? Is it a sport or something else. If it's a sport, what sport are you going to do? Is it soccer? What is your favorite sport?

    Your friends,
    Gal and Edo

  7. Dear Mrs.Ranney,
    I think that family blogging month was a blast because I got to meet many people's family members.

    I want to ask you something.
    My question is, are you going to make a holiday post or a winter post?

    @Aidan, I think that it is really magnificent that you got so many family members to go onto the class blog! Another thing that I wanted to say to you was that you also made lots of comments yourself. I can't wait to see how many family members you will get onto the blog when we have our next family blogging month in the spring!

    Yours Truly,

  8. Dear Aidan, Carly, Jamie, and Ella,

    Best regards,
    Mrs. Ranney

  9. Dear Class,

    Thank you all for your nice congratulations.

    It means a lot to me that you like my comments. You have amazing synonyms and some remarkable adjectives in your comment!

    What a kind comment!

    @Leah and Mikayla,
    You are showing gracious behavior and good sportsmanship. If there was an award for sportsmanship, you should receive it. I will also try to show good sportsmanship in the future.
