Hard to believe it is Christmas time already, this year is flying by.  We have been very busy using ipads and skyping with other class around the world.  My class loves to skype and they are great at it.
 So I decided to share some of our skypes and the jobs of students during skypes.
Greeters: they make the initial contact 
 My goal again this year is to skype a class in all of the 50 states.  We will also make contact with classrooms in other countries.

During the month of Dec. we skyped with students in Germany

Skyping with students in Ireland

During our skypes students have jobs, this helps to insure that everyone is busy and involved.

Everyone is busy, fact finders, taking notes, mapping on ipads, and mappers.

Skyping is fun for everyone.  We have skyped 23 times so far this year with many more being planned.  Stay tuned to see more of our class activities.
