Welcome

Welcome to my blog. My name is Jaden and I am in Mrs. Yollis' 3rd grade class in California. I have a lot of hobbies and here are some: basketball, football, karate, blogging, reading and playing with my friends. On this blog I will be posting about sports, school, and other things in my life.  Please feel free to leave a comment on my blog.

I am very happy to have my own blog. I would like to give a special thanks to my teacher Mrs. Yollis for letting me have my own blog. It means a lot to me that she allowed me to have my own blog.  I look forward to reading your comments and commenting back to you. 

Do you have any hobbies?

Dear Jaden,

Congratulations on your sports blog!

We really like the Voki because it looks a lot like you and you said you like to go to the beach. How perfect! We think you will have a lot of fun on your new blog.

How did you choose the background picture?


Many of us are going to comment individually. We will be sure to:

* proofread for fluency

* capitalize the beginnings of sentences, the pronoun I, and proper nouns

* punctuate correctly

What ideas do you have for future posts?


Sincerely,
Mrs. Yollis and class

Dear Jaden,

Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging! You will have lots of fun and meet lots of friends from all over the world.

How do you like having a blog? It's pretty fun isn't it?
My hobby is netball. Also I like to read.
Netball is pretty much the same as basketball but you can't bounce the ball and there is no back board.

There is a good widget and I'm going to share it with you... It's a Christmas countdown, if you want it, look at my blog and click on the Christmas countdown on my sidebar.

Hope you have lots of fun with your blog!
Keep it up,
Sophie

@ Dad,

Thank you for my first comment. It was a wonderful one. My favorite one of the hobbies I listed is basketball. How long have you been playing basketball?

@ Aunt Christine,

Thank you for commenting to me. It was a great comment. I hope you enjoy commenting on my blog. I am reading sports books. Could you show Max and Cole my blog?

@ Class,

Thank you for your comment. I hope you could comment on my blog again soon. I chose the background because I am playing flag football and it is a football player. Next month I am going to post about a Laker game I am going to.

@ Grandma,

Thank you for your great comment. It was a wonderful comment. I made the blog at home. Do you like blogging on my blog?

@ Mom,

Thank you for your great comment. I was suprised when I got home from school and you told me you left a comment on my blog. How do you like blogging?

@ Lexi,

Wow! I have never seen a different kindergartner blog. If I have, it wasn't as good as your comment. How do you like blogging?

@ Myrna,

I really miss Dominic. I hope he will comment on my blog. Thank you for your great comment. Will Dominic be commenting on my blog?

@ Lee,

Thank you for my first comment that was not from the U.S.A! I think you are a fabulous blogger. How long have you been blogging?

Sincerely,
Jaden

Jaden said...

@ Sophie,

Thank you for your fabulous comment. My mom was going to ask what netball is but you explained it to us. I love having my own blog. It is fun having a blog just like you said. How do you like having your own blog? Do you know if netball is the same as what we call volleyball in the United States?

Sincerely,
Jaden

Iman and Amitai said...

@ Jaden,


Wow! You are already such a stupendous blogger! You really earned your blog. Here are some reasons why:

1. First, you commented back to everyone on your blog.

2. Next, your comments are two pointers because they're quality comments.

3. Finally, you always have the right spelling, punctuation, and you always proofread.


We also look forward to looking at all the spectacular events that you will blog about, as well as the sports.

What is your favorite sport?

Sincerely,
Iman and Amitai

Gregg said...

Dear Jaden,

I have been plating basketball since I was about 6 years old. I remember Papa Charlie taking me to the local middle school to shoot with him. We did not have our own basketball net at our house. Papa Charlie was a really good free throw shooter. You should ask him to play with you when we are in New York. Do you think you can beat Papa Charlie in a best out of 10 free throw shooting contest?

Dad

Max said...

Dear Jaden,
I love your blog. I can't wait until you come to New York! What sports do you want to play when you are here? I can't wait to see you and do fun things together.
Love, Max (your favorite cousin)

Cole said...

Dear Jaden,
I love your blog very much. Do you want to play horse when you come to NY? I play basketball too and would love it if you would come to my practice when you are here. I hope it snows when you are in NY so that we can go sledding.
Love,
Your very, very, very favorite cousin Cole

Lauren said...

Dear Jaden,

Awesome blog! Can't wait to see what you post next! Your Voki looks just like you! Max smiled really big when I played your Voki video for him! He can't wait to see you again - hopefully really soon! Keep up the great work on your blog!

Love,
Lauren, Jason, Baby Max and Doggie Bob

Grace on the go said...

Dear Jaden,

I love your blog! I can not believe that you have fifteen comments already! your Voki looks a lot like you. Your background is cool with the football player. The red looks like it matches the background too.

Was it hard for you to make a blog?
Do you think that your Voki looks like you?

Grace

Grace on the go said...

Hi Jaden,

Congratulations on receiving your own blog! I love your design and the Voki does look like you. :) It is funny that you, Gracie and Ryan all chose the beach as the background for the Voki. Gracie loved reading your comments as well as your mom's.

If you had to pick a favorite sport, which one would it be? How is your football team doing this season?

Warmly,

Shari (Gracie's mom)

Bob said...

Dear Jaden,

I am proud of you that you got your own blog. I am going to check your blog very often. I think that was a wonderful post. Why am I having trouble commenting on your blog when you are not helping me?

Love,
Papa Bob

Ryan said...

Dear Jaden,

I love your blog! I have many hobbies. My favorites are drawing, collecting rocks, and four square. I love drawing silly things. For example, I like to draw aliens. I collect interesting rocks when I go on hikes. At lunch I always play 5 or 6 exciting games of four square. I enjoy these hobbies very much. I love karate and reading too! I go to Nicky's Karate Zone. I like reading mystery books. What is your 1st favorite hobby?

From,
Ryan

Kathleen said...

Dear Jaden,

I'm very proud of you for earning your own blog! I knew you'd be a great blogger right from the start.

I'm looking forward to reading all your interesting posts.

I have a few hobbies. One of them is blogging (of course). Another hobby of mine is jogging. I like to get up early (5:40am!) and go for a run and sometimes participate in fun runs. I am a pretty slow runner but I enjoy it and I like to keep fit. Do you like to run, Jaden?

Your friend,
Miss McGeady

Judy McKenzie said...

Dear Jaden
I'm so pleased that you have earned your own blog, as I know you worked hard to deserve it.

One thing that I like to collect is old postcards. I prefer to collect postcards that show places that I have been, and the place that I live in.

I have had a new hobby this year, and that has been developing my class blog. It's fun trying out new things.

I look forward to reading about your adventures.

from Mrs M♔Kenzie

Jaden said...

@ Iman and Amitai,

Thank you for your comment. Also thank you for all the compliments. My favorite sport is basketball. What is your favorite sport?

@ Dad,
Thank you for your comment. It is amazing that you have been playing basketball since you were 6. I think I have been playing basketball since I was 5.

Sincerely,
Jaden

PaPa Charlie said...

Hi Jaden,
I really am proud of you and the excellent job you did in developing your own blog. I look forward to seeing you in December and playing basketball with you. I suspect that you will outscore me just as your Dad did.
Love,
PaPa Charlie

Jillian said...

Hi Jaden!
Congrats on the new blog I'm so proud of
You! I'm looking forward to becoming an avid reader of all
your posts and of course commenting on them!
Great job and it looks great!
Love you, "Just" Jillian (Jaden's Aunt)

Gregg said...

Dear Jaden,

I apologize for the typographical error in my last post. The only way to edit it is to delete the comment and then republish the post without the typographical error. If I did that, though, it would not be in chronological order. Regarding basketball, you have actually been playing since you were about 20 months old. I even remember, when we lived in Agoura, you playing on your little basketball hoop that you could dunk on.

Dad

Ben said...

Dear Jaden,
I like your blog.I like the colors and photos. The Voki looks like you, but doesn't sound like you. Is your favorite hobby football? My favorite hobby is snowskiing and playing with my friends.
From your friend,
Ben

Hannah said...

Dear Jaden,

Congatulations on getting your own blog! Wow, you have so many comments. Looks like you are going to have a very popular blog.

One of my favorite hobbies is knitting. I am working on a vest at the moment. In the past, I knitted a scarf and a purse.

Keep up the good work. I'll be visiting your blog often.

Sincerely,
Hannah

Sophie said...

Dear Jaden,

Good to hear from you!
Also great comment!

I like having my own blog.
Netball is not volleyball in the U.S.A.
We have volleyball in Australia.


Jaden, if you want any cool voki's that I have on your blog, you can ask me for help.
From your new friend,
Sophie :)

Iman said...

Dear Jaden,

Here is the answer to your question, my favorite sport is soccer. If I get a blog I will name it "Iman's incredible blog". If you were thinking of getting a blog in the beginning of the year, did you have a different name?

From,
Iman

Anonymous said...

Dear Jaden,

I like your blog! You asked if I have any hobbies. I have some hobbies. Hockey is my favorite hobby.

Here is some questions:

Do you like any other Vokis? Did you want any other name for your blog? Do you like any other backgrounds for your blog?

Miriam said...

Dear Jaden,
The black and red looks very spooky!:} Your Voki is cool too. It looks exactly like you!:)

It sounds like you like sports. I also like sports. My favorite sport is running. I also like to play piano.


If you could choose another name for your blog what would it be?

From,
Miriam

Grandma Marie said...

Dear Jaden,
Your blog is terrific. I like the bright colors that you used to make Voki. His twinkling eyes remind me of you. Is it exciting to hear from people in other parts of the world? I am very proud of you, and I look forward to reading your blog.
Love,
Grandma Marie

Miss W. said...

G'day Jaden,
Your own blog now and you deserve it. All those comments and conversations you had with me on my blogs.

One of my interests that I might not have mentioned before is genealogy. That is researching family history. When I retire from teaching at the end of next year, I will be doing a lot of research on both my family and that of other people around the world.

Once again, congratulations.

Dear Jaden
I love having you come visit Grandpa and I at our house.
On Tuesday I am anxious to give you the new book that I have ordered for you.
I know how much you enjoy reading and are looking forward to this book.
Love.
Grandma Carol

Dominic said...

Dear Jaden,
How is your school? We can play dodgeball at our new school! Did you sign up for AYSO? My team's name is the 9 Muskateers. Good luck on your blog!

Your friend,
Dominic

Jaden said...

@ Grace,

Thank you for your good comment. I can not believe I have so many comments either. It is probaly because I have so many family members. Making the blog was not too hard. I do think that the voki looks like me. How is your blog going?

@ Shari,

Thank you for your wonderful comment. If I had to pick one sport it would be basketball. This season my football team is in first place. Do you like sports?

@ Papa Bob,

Thank you for your fabulous comment. It is great that you will be commenting often. I think you are having trouble commenting because you try to comment at your work. Do you like my blog?

@ Ryan,

Thank you for your awesome comment. You have a lot of hobbies and maybe even more than me. My first favorite hobby is basketball. What is your first favorite hobby?

Warmly,
Jaden

Jaden said...

@ Mrs M♔Kenzie

I am happy that you took the time to comment on my blog. I collect sports cards. For my birthday I got about 100 football cards. Once at a Lakers game I got about 200 basketball cards & about 10 of them were Kobe Bryant. Do you like basketball & football?

Sincerely,
Jaden

Jaden said...

@ Miss McGeady,

Thank you for your great comment. I think it is great to have lots of hobbies because sometimes you get tired of doing one thing over & over again. I do like to run. My football coach always makes us run & I am one of the three slowest people on our team. How often do you comment on blogs?

Sincerely,
Jaden

Jaden said...

@ Papa Charlie,

Thank you for your stupendous comment. I am happy that you were able to comment on my blog. I wonder if I will outscore you. Daddy always beats me by about 20 points. Do Max and Cole like my blog?

Sincerely,
Jaden

Jaden said...

@ Just Jillian,

Thank you for your comment. I am happy that you have already commented 2 times. I am glad you are going to be an avid reader.

@ Dad,

Thank you for your wonderful comment. I am happy that you have already commented 3 times. It might even be the most after me. I am suprised I have been playing basketball since I was 20 months old. Have you ever scored 100 points in 1 on 1?

Warmly,
Jaden

Dear Jaden,
Congratulations on earning your blog. You are awesome!
I was surprised to see that you picked basketball as your favorite sport. I would have guessed that you would pick karate.

Jaden said...

@ Ben,

Thank you for your comment. My favorite hobby is not football it is basketball. Do you like basketball?

@ Hannah,

Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. My grandma also knits. I am not sure if she still does though, but she did knit me a sweater when I was a baby. Maybe if you get a blog you could show pictures of what you knit.

Best Regards,
Jaden

Jaden said...

@ Sophie,

Thank you for your 2nd comment. I do not want any Voki's because I already have one that looks like me. How do you get the pets that you can feed?

@ Iman,

Thank you for your good comment. I was not really thinking of a name at the beginning of the school year. Iman, what are some of your hobbies?

@ Misha,

Thank you for your great comment. I liked a basketball background and a flame background also. I do not like any other voki's. Another name I liked was LAJballerz the name of my fantasy basketball and football teams. If you get a blog what would you name it?

Warmly,
Jaden

Linda Yollis said...

Dear Jaden,

I like your second choice of flames. If I had a blog, the background would be the flames. I don't know what kind there, are but I do like your idea. I would so name it my friend's blog because I have a lot of friends.

Hi Jaden,
I think you might out score me in a game of HORSE. Max and Cole really like your blog. We all are counting the days until you come to New York.
Keep up the great job you are doing in school and keep those blog responses coming!!!
Love,
PaPa Charlie

Jaden said...

@ Miriam,

Thank you for your excellent comment. I love sports. My favorite ones are basketball and football. If I could choose a different name for my blog it would probaly be LAJBallerz the name of my fantasy basketball and football teams.If you could choose a name for your blog what would it be?

@ Grandma Marie,

Thank you for your exquisite comment. I think it is great how blogs help you communicate all around the world. For example, I am in California and you are in New York and since I have my own blog we can communicate. It is exciting to hear from other people in the world. I am just as excited to hear from other people in my class.

Warmly,
Jaden

Jaden said...

@ Miss. W,

Thank you for your awesome comment. I like making convesations. I have a question. When you retire teaching are you still going to do the blogging challenge? I hope I can be in the next one.

@ Grandma Carol,

Thank you for your faboulous comment. I am happy I heard from you. I really like the book. I am on page 100 already!

@ Dominic,

Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog. Once I was playing with you in kindrgarden and I thought your name was Domino like the pizza place. I like my school. I do not play in AYSO. We are not allowed to play dodgeball at my school. Do you remember Adam from our old school? He goes to my new school but he wants to transfer back next year.

Sincerely,
Jaden

Jaden said...

@ Aunt Rona,

Thank you for your cool comment. I do like karate, but this year I have gotten really into basketball. Recently, I tested for my 2nd brown belt in karate. This weekend I will be posting about it. Do you watch basketball on TV?

@ Misha,

Thank you for leaving me a great comment. If you go to Nick's blog you will see the flames. Tell me if you like them.

@ Papa Charlie,

Thank you for your phenomenal comment. I bet if we played one on one I can still beat you. At Max and Cole's house do they still find that cat?

Sincerely,
Jaden

Lexi said...

@ Jaden,
