Mr. McClung's World
My Comments for Kids #7 was Mr.McClung's World. I was assigned to the post "Lesson Four- March Madness." Mr.McClung comments on how basketball talk is taking over schools, workplaces, basically all conversations. He said that he was planning on watching the basketball coverage over the weekend and watching his bracket ultimately fail.
In my response I told him who I was and that I was a student in Dr. Strange's EDM310 class. I also told him that I did not follow basketball on T.V., but was not oblivious to all of the basketball talk going on around me. Finally, I told him about how one of my teachers from my senior year in high school had the whole class fill out a bracket. Whomever's bracket won, or was the closest, got five extra bonus points for class. He found it entertaining because it was almost always a girl who knew nothing about basketball that won.
I'm not sure what my C4K assignment was, so I'm going to have to go back and search for it. I will update this post with more information as soon as I find it.
Mrs. Yollis' Class Blog
As can be seen above, Mrs. Yollis' Classroom blog is obviously an impressive one. Most of us already knew this before we even had this assignment since we have used her insturctions in our own class.
In the "Meet Mrs. Yollis" section, she has posted a few pictures of herself. She also tells us that it is her 24th year of teaching. She is not only a teacher but a student, who has just received her masters degree. She also talks about how she loves to travel and the places she has been.
In the "Meet the Bloggers" section there is a picture of her class. She tells us that there is a combination of 11 boys and 11 girls in her classroom.
In the "How to Comment" section, there is a video on how to comment. In the video she shows not only how to literally post a comment, but also what should be included and excluded from comments.
The "Learn HTML" section, is one that we are all familiar with. It is a great way to learn about using HTML.

The "Time Zones of Friends" is a fun page to go see what time it is in other time zones and countries.
Jaden's Awesome Blog
My Comment for Kids #10 was a boy named Jaden from Mrs. Yollis' class. His post talked about a basketball game he recently attended. It was between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Dallas Maverick. Jaden posted a picture of himself from the game (see above). In his post he talked about the score at the end of each quarter. He also asked three questions at the end. "Have you ever been to a Clippers game?" "If so, who did they play?" "If not, would you want to see a clippers game?"
I responded by telling him who I was and where I went to school. I also told him I was taking Dr.Strange's EDM310 class and the kind of things we learn about. I told him that I didn't really like to watch sports as much on television, but that I do like to watch them in person. I told him that I had not been to a Clippers game yet. Finally I told him that he did a very good post, because he added a picture and posed questions for his readers.
