Skyping and the Week Ahead
A lot of excitement now and the weeks ahead!
Tuesday we spent some time sharing our poems with Mrs. McMurtry's class from Regina Saskatchewan, Canada. What a blast to visit and share poems. Her 4th grade class found poems they enjoyed and read them chorally to us with actions. How cool! We shared a handful of our student written poems. What a great experience.
We connected with Mrs. McMurtry's class through the Olympic Wiki Project that we did earlier this year.
It is a big week this week with, hopefully, our track meet today, depending on the weather. Then Thursday we will be Skyping with Rhode Island, NY and Fredericton, New Brunswick Canada to share poetry with both classes.
We are also starting two new projects. A social studies project on westward expansion in the US, and a science project on natural disasters. These projects will hit a lot of standards in several areas across the curriculum. These should provide a lot of investigation and excitement in learning.
