Postcard Exchange & Skype

This is the front cover of our postcard we will be sending out at the end of October. I signed us up for my very first postcard exchange. We will be exchanging postcards with classrooms around the United States & even Germany & Great Britain! This is going to be very exciting for us & we will also be learning so much about all the other states & countries we are exchanging with. I ordered enough to send home a postcard with each child. I am hoping to hook up with a few classes to Skype with. Speaking of Skype, check this out.....
 This is how we see the teachers & Dr. Blohm at IUN. They just got finished watching the kids during their first "Word Work" rotation, which is part of Daily 5. Then the teachers read "Green Eggs & Ham" to them. 
How cool is that? I love it! I love the fact that my students get the opportunity to experience this in our classroom. Technology...I don't know how I taught without it! 
If you read this far, tell your child that I owe them a BIG WARM FUZZY for reading the blog. Deadline is Thursday morning. I must have a deadline because word will spread, trust me ;o)
