Today, I am linking up with Joanne at Head Over Heels for Teaching for some motivation. Who couldn't use a little motivation on this second Saturday in February???
I thought it would be a great day to meet up with our Canadian pen pals from Mrs. Barton's class via Skype. (You know her as Lisa from Grade 4 Buzz.)
We logged in and Skyped for about 30 minutes. Each student had a chance to "meet" their pen pal then we asked questions of each other. My students were so excited -- it was the highlight of their day! Now, when they write to each other, they will have a face to put with a name. How exciting!
What ways do you use Skype in your classroom?
I hope to see you at Head Over Heels for Teaching for some more motivation! I'll see you back here tomorrow for my weekly linky party, A Peek at My Week. Hope you will link up! ;))
