We have been skyping like crazy! Our goal is to skype with a classroom from each of the 50 states, plus at least one classroom from each continent. We are off to a great start. So far we have skyped with Pennsylvania, North Carolina, South Carolina, Illinois, California, and Canada! One of our skypes was with Carol Ann McGuire. She is a teacher from California and leader of Rock Our World. She taught us how to use Garage Band! The rest of our skypes were "Mystery Skypes." Through a series of yes and no questions we guess where each other is located. We are getting pretty good!!!!

Grandparent's Day

Today was very special! Grandparents came to our classroom to meet all of our classroom pets. We had a green screen studio set up and we took pictures of students and their grandparents. Later, the grandparents ate lunch in the cafeteria with their grandchildren.
