Skyping with Ms. Penno's Class
Today, we Skyped with Ms. Penno's grade 4 class.Their class is in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. We are in Fultondale, Alabama, USA.We discussed The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate. We were separated in 6 groups to discuss which animal character we would save from the book. Our groups were: Ivan, Stella 1, Stella 2, Ruby, Mixed characters, and Bob. Each group had turns talking to the students in Ms. Penno's class. Each group discussed who will they save, how would they save them, why they save them. We also asked questions about the story. We Skyped for one hour with their classroom. When we were Skyping, we felt as if we were actually talking class to class. Skyping to Canada was the most awesome experience ever. We also got to learn some cool information about their school and their city. ~DC and AM.
