Welcome to our blog! We are the children from 2KM and 2KJ at Leopold Primary School in Victoria, Australia. There are 45 of us and our teachers are Mrs Kathleen Morris and Miss Kelly Jordan. We used this space to share all the great things that happened in our classroom in 2011.
Mrs Yollis is back at school with her new third grade students!
Mrs Yollis’ class lives in Los Angeles, California. They are in the Northern Hemisphere and we are in the Southern Hemisphere. Even though we live on opposite sides of the world, we are great friends.

Because it is summer in the Northern Hemisphere, Mrs Yollis’ class have just finished their summer break. Last week Mrs Yollis started back at school with a brand new bunch of third graders.
Mrs Morris first became friends with Mrs Yollis through blogging in 2009. Read one of the first posts about the 2KM/Yollis friendship on Mrs Yollis’ class blog here. The new third graders in Mrs Yollis’ class are the fourth group of students that 2KM and 2KJ has been blogging buddies with!
Mrs Yollis’ class are beginner bloggers so we encourage everyone in the 2KM and 2KJ community to support them!

We look forward to lots of fun and learning with Mrs Yollis and her new group of students!

We are not the only ones who think Mrs Yollis is great. There are many students all around the world who have learnt something from Mrs Yollis. We got together with our blogging buddies in Mr Avery’s class, Mr Salsich’s class and Mrs McKenzie’s class (B4) to create this special “happy birthday” video.

What is your favourite memory of working with Mrs Yollis?
2KM and 2KJ have been friends with these classes for quite some time and the new 2011 students are enjoying getting to know their blogging buddies.
These classes read about Quad blogging from Mr. Mitchell. The concept: four blogging classes come together and learn about one another one week at a time. The alliance (group of friends) will help each class increase their readership while flattening their classroom walls and learning about the wonderful world we live in.
This week, let’s meet Mrs Yollis’ third graders from California! They are a group of 11 girls and 12 boys!
Mrs Yollis’ class has prepared a special post to introduce themselves to you.
