Spirit Week and Skype

Spirit Week was super! There were so many things planned. We learned all about Australia when we brought in pictures to put on our front board.   There was also a big picture of Mrs. Walsh and Prep N, a Kindergarten class who  are our epals.  They are a really nice class and they email us letters often.
On Friday, our 3-13 buddies came to our classroom to have a 'Trail Mix' party.  All our snacks were mixed together and we got to eat it.  It was good!

We  started to Skype  with a Kindergarten class from Virginia.  That meant we saw and talked to another group of children far, far away using our computer and IWB.  A snowflake, which is a microphone and a webcam, which helped them see all us was used.  This is what we thought about it:

TH - They were nice children.
DB - They go home without their Moms and Dads.
SM - The children were singing nicely and loudly.
ML- I liked the class.
RY - The children stood up straight  when he or she spoke to us.
DSB - I liked their song.
AU - I liked it.
JI - Their teacher was nice.
EK - I liked their singing.
JK - They were sitting nicely.
MM - I liked when they sang their song.
KL -  They said their name loudly and nicely.

Mrs. Lee said we will be Skyping again with our new group of friends soon.  It was great!
