We had another great Skype call with Ms. Cypert's class this week! We all wrote about something that we would be willing to give up all of our free time to achieve. We also had to say why we'd choose that, and how it would make the world a better place. In the book we are reading together the main character Melody spends all of her time getting ready for the Wiz Kids Competition.
We shared our goals and dreams with each other. It was fun to hear what they are working hard to achieve. Mrs. Cobb's class joined us and they shared their goals too. It is so much fun to connect this way. We really like Ms. Cypert's class, it is so huge! They are good writers and they leave us great comments that make us think. We enjoy learning with them!
We also had an chance to Skype with Mr. Boylen's class. We were having a wild wind storm here so the connection was a little rocky at first, but it got better. It was our first Skype with them. They live in Iowa. We learned something interesting that we have in common. In our class we come from many different communities to learn together. This is a bit unusual. We learned that the students in Mr. Boylen's class come from several different communities too! We all have long bus rides to and from school each day. Their parents have to do a lot of driving just like ours!
Mr. Boylen had 2 classes back to back. A few of us stayed to talk to his second class for a little while. Our teacher said that next time we could work it out so we could talk to both classes. Thank You!
