    I teach year 2 in Brisbane, Australia (the children are 6/7 years olds turning 7/8 throughout the year.

    • I teach 1st-3rd grade in Muskegon, Michigan and would love to set something up with you either this year or next. We are out on June 11. How would we work through the time difference? I am not sure how much participation I would get with students coming back in at night to connect with you during your school day, but I can ask around if it is something you are interested in.

      • Hi Amy, I would love to connect with you and I know my children would love to as well. My teaching partner often skypes with a teacher in Canada and one in New Hampshire without a problem of children returning to school. We could give it a go and see what happens. I am happy to connect before you finish up for the year if this suits you.

    • It sounds like a great idea! I have a 2nd grade teacher that is very excited to work with her class and teach them about Australia. How does the end of the first week in June work for you? What time in the morning do you start school? I am thinking that if it works on your end we could meet around 7 or 7:30 my time which if I am figuring right that would be 9-9:30 in the morning for you. Did I figure that out right? Do you have something specific you would like to do during the call?

    • We are from Brindavan school, Trichy,India. At present we are invovled with a project called “Ourselves” which includes linking ourselves with pupils of different countries and
      1. comparing and sorting the differences of physical appearance between ourselves and our linked partners.
      2. Sharing the statitics of class favourite taste,smell and music.
      3. Learning rhymes and songs on body parts and exchanging our audio with our partner.
      4. Collecting pictures on objects which harm us.
      We would be delighted to know if you are interested in this project, if so please enlighten us about your availability regarding skyping. Our skype id is “brindavanstaff”.
