Today the 2nd grade students participated in an unusual event - Mr.Mike Soskil organized Global Holiday Song Exchange Skype-a-Thon but due to the timezone difference we weren't able to sing our Christmas songs in real time but sent them the video. To learn more about this event, here is the link: http://kidblog.org/WASE/msoskil/global-holiday-song-exchange-skype-a-thon/
Today my 4th grade students had a chance to play a fun Maths Kahoot game with 2 classes from Canada. A big THANK YOU to Scott McKenzie who invited us to play with his class. The kids LOVED the interactive way of showing their math skills and were eager to meet their peers from Canada and chat with them after the game. We also had a special guest from London Kahoot Office, @KahootSteph who enjoyed our game with us. How did we manage to play with a class half-way across the world with 6-hour time difference? Well, we used G+Hangout screen sharing option so that all of us could see the question at the same time. I've never seen my students so enthusiastic about a Maths test before, we can't wait to try this game again with different subjects and playing buddies from another country!
Stephanie from Kahoot has promised to send a T-shirt for Nikola, the winner of our game - I can't describe his excitement in words!
Today we discussed the novel "The Little Prince" with Mrs. Garza's class from Mexico via Skype. My students prepared 2 videos and discussions during Literature classes with their teacher Vesna Stanojevic, and today they presented their works for their peers from Mexico. Here are a few photos and the videos the students prepared. Enjoy!
