Skype, Karma Wilson & Bear Snores On

It has been a fantastic week here in KF.  We have been working hard and having fun taking our learning in different directions. This week we have been making new US and International friends via Skype in the classroom.  First, we became kindergarten buddies with Mrs. McMahons kindergarten class in Alberta Canada. We haven't met our new friends yet, but hope to in the coming weeks. We also met with Mrs. Andersons 1A Grizzly Bears.  Two excellent 1st grade readers from Missoula's Hawthorne Elementary School read a book to us. We ended the week with a special visitor in our classroom.  Mrs. Kaminski is a Skype Reading tutor in Wisconsin.  We connected with Mrs. Kaminski for a 15 minute Skype reading session. She read Karma Wilson's Bear Snores On - which happens to be our Reading Street book for the week. She engaged us with her passion for reading - all while sitting at her computer in Wisconsin. Check out the kind words she had to say about her visit with us on her Skype Reading Tutor blog. Thank you Mrs. Kaminski!

  1. We are so glad you enjoyed our reading! We will certainly do it again soon. Your class was such a good audience! It is so fun to learn how to use these tools and to share our learning with you.
