    It was great chatting with you today! I realized that I was writing down what we talked about that I do not know your email so I won’t be able to email you our questions.
    My email is: smorrison@rockyview.ab.ca
    Also, it is a Professional Learning Day on Monday so students are not at school. I will have them generate questions on Tuesday and I will…[Read more]

    Thursday can work, but it might be too late for you?? I have an appt which won’t get me home until around 7, which is 9 your time. It is Story Week this week at our school so things have been hectic, I am sorry for my delayed replies. If Thursday doesn’t work then I am open to Saturday/Sunday.

    • Let’s shoot for Saturday evening, I’ll add you as a contact and plan on being on around 6, (4 for you) if this time doesn’t work for you, just let me know a time after 4 (for me) on Saturday, or pretty much any time on Sunday. I know what you mean by hectic, this week’s been super busy here too! Looking forward to talking though, it will be my…[Read more]

    Hello! I think this sounds like a great thing to dialogue about. What is your time frame? Perhaps we could skype (you and I) next week and come up with a plan. I am in Mountain Standard Time. Let me know of some dates and times that will work for you. I think this sounds great! Thanks for contacting me.

    • We are Eastern Standard Time, so that puts me 2 hours ahead of you (we just started time, so that would be another great integration!) I am usually at school until 3:45, and also have skype on my netbook at home. My son has soccer practice on Wednesdays, and I coach softball on Fridays, so could we shoot for Thursday? If Thursday works for you,…[Read more]

    Sorry for not getting back to you!!

    We are currently writing about animals in the winter. We could share our posters and iMovies with your class or I could have them take what they’ve learned and write it out more formally to share.

    We could also set it up where we have to meetings. First, we could listen to your informational books and ask…[Read more]

    We are beginning our family week break, I will contact you next week to discuss some ideas. I think we could make this work!

    • Are you ready to connect? We are currently writing Informational books so we could definitely discuss the purpose or features of info text.

    All units of study in our class begin with essential questions, but usually they are my questions. I am trying to transition them to ask their own questions. Have you had positive experiences with this? We are currently studying:

    LA – What do good readers/writers do?
    Math – Addition problem solving… moving into subtraction
    Science – Season…[Read more]

    Next weeks sounds great. Should we exchange some questions beforehand that we can have our classes prepare answers for? If so, how many would you recommend. Thanks.

  • smorrison posted a new activity comment 6 years, 1 month ago

    That sounds good. Do you have some questions that your class will be answering already? I am just wondering which statistics you would like to know. We would love to make a video for your class introducing ourselves. I’ll start working toward that!

    • Hai,
      Sorry for the delay. Our school did a project on wonders of the world and everyone was busy at it. Now iam uploading the video of our class 1 project. I thought video would be like a offline skype call. (As we have big time difference). May be u could ask ur kids to do the same or send us some pics of ur kids and their answers by e-mail.

    The times might now work as you are 13.5 hrs ahead of us!! However, we could set up either a blog or email. We can send questions, pictures, video, comments that way? What do you think?

    • Thats great. As a first step we will first send some of our class statistics and if u could do the same we will be happy. May we could even exchange some you tube intros of students. What do u think?

    My time frame is flexible. I can definitely make this work for the end of the week or if you want early next week. Let me know. I will have my class start generating questions to ask.
    Thanks!! I look forward to this!

    I would appreciate dialogue, feedback and ideas!! I need to know what has worked in other classrooms. Also, it would be great to plan a collaborative project that uses inquiry-based principles. Thanks! I teach Grade 1 in Alberta, Canada.

    • Would love to connect and work on a collaborative project focused on iquiry. Any ideas? We are currently studying balance and will be moving into a unit on force and motion. All units of study in my class start with inquiry and essential questions.

    • Hi! We are a first grade class in Wilmington, NC. We are new to skype and are very interested in using it as a form of communication and to learn about other cultures around the world (integration with our social studies curriculum).
