Skypeing With Our Partners
Alondra

Today was awesome=http://! That’s the only word I can think of!! My teacher assigned me and and a boy in my class a story of Harris Burdick. My partner was Jairo. A teacher in New York assigned two girls in her class to be in the same story with us. Their names are Melinda and Shavani. They are really nice. But you can’t even imagine how cool it was. To tell you the truth, I can’t even imagine how cool it was=http://
Here is the story. My class and I started taking notes about pictures that didn’t have a story. We had to write the story to one picture with our partners in New York. 2 weeks passed and it was the day to go on our Google Docs. Google Docs are a page on the internet the you can communicate with other people.
On the first day we used Google Docs it was kind of weird but it was cool at the same time. Now came the day that we had to see each other on Skype which is also awesome. It was my partner's and my turn now. I was so anxious to see my partners in New York. As I got closer to the computer I was thinking in my head, am I going to do something wrong? I don’t know what my partner was thinking but I know that he was anxious too.
Now I was right in front of the computer and in front of the girls in New York. They looked so different from what I thought.
First we started to talk to each other and introduce each other, but we had a difficult time hearing each other. I could see them well but not hear them.
What I liked about it was that I got to meet new people. What I didn’t like about it was that we couldn’t hear each other very well. My teacher just told us that tomorrow we are going to do it again! I can’t wait!!!!
THE END

Hi Alondra! You probably don't know me but I am doing a class blog 2.(But only 4 of us are doing it.) All of the things you guys do sound so cool, probably because you are in 58th grade.I am in 4th.Me and my class did notes on that same book.How weird! I can't wait to hear more of you stories!
