I was assigned the post entitled Irish Punk Rock on Mr. McClung's blog. In this post, he gives an interesting description of the Murpheys. He describes the Murpheys as an Irish American Celtic punk band that began in the basement of a friend's barbarshop. The Murpheys were formed in Quincy, Massachusetts in 1996. The Murpeys are famous for their extensive touring, St. Patricks Day Weekend Shows, and paronage of the Bostn Red Sox, Celtics and Bruns. On March 1, 2011, they will be releasing their seventh album. I have never heard of the Murpheys before. From reading this description of the Murpheys, I would like to hear them one day.
From Mrs.Thompson's 6th and 7th grade class located in Room 13, I was assigned to a girl named Olivia. She has a very COOL BLOG! In the post that I commented on, she talks about her class doing a dance to a song entitled "Rock Me." Their class plans on doing the Jive for their dance. A woman named Marilyn is going assist them with their dance movements. For the dance, they wanted the girls to dance with the boys but they did not have enough boys. However, the girls had to dance with other girls. This dance sounds like a lot of fun! I am taking both Modern and Jazz Dancing this semester! I really enjoy both of them!
Mrs.Yollis'Blog was very enjoyable to read! Her blog is very interesting and well-costructed. I love it that she has the parents so involved in their children's education. I watched a video that Mrs. Yollis created entitled "How to Comment." In this video, she fully explains how to comment on her blog. She also explains how to comment and gives excellent examples of quality comments in the blog post entitled "Quality Commenting During Famiy Blogging Month." Mrs. Yollis has to approve your comment before it is published. Quality commenting is very important. I am going to take the advice that Mrs. Yollis gave about quality commenting into consideration.
From Mrs. Yollis' class, I was assigned to comment on Hannah's Blog. Both Hannah and Leila did a Wonderful Thing! They donated their 10 inch ponytails to Locks of Love. Locks of Love provides is an organization that provides free wigs to children in Canada that have a financial need. It was very genrous of both of them to donate their hair to support this organization. Both of these girls have a very good heart!
