It was a fun day of learning with technology in room 120...and there is a lot more to come! The day arrived for the morning class, in more than one way. First, they were welcomed back to school after being off since February 8! They have had an extended winter break due to snow days and delays. The kids came bouncing into the room all excited to tell me what they did. Quin mentioned he was able to visit the Airforce Museum and he told us all about the numbers and things he saw! I heard a lot of kids playing in the snow. However, the most important and exciting part of the day was their first Skype with Amelia Elemenary's morning class. We introduced ourselves and talked a little bit about the olympics. We learned about the rings and a few of our favorite olympic sports. We also talked about the different countries flags and found similarities and differences between them. It was amazing to see how many flags are alike and how they are different. One observation made by Shushruth was the same colors seem to reappear in the flags. We noticed red was used a lot. It seemed everyone in the class found a flag they loved. We will be watching a few clips from an event tomorrow...hopefully where one of out athletes wins gold! We will also be graphing the medal count. You may want to check it out with your child and have them come and report back to me tomorrow for the graph. Check out our Skype session from the morning below!
