On Friday our class met knew friends in another state! They Skyped us and we played a game that made us use our inference skills, question skills, writing skills, reasoning skills, listening skills, and the list goes on. The students had to ask questions using a map to figure out where our out of state friends lived. Do you border an ocean? How many states do you border? Do you live in the north? We realized as a class that as our questions were answered that we needed to decide how our questions would then need to change. The other class also asked us questions. We now have friends in a school in Georgia. Fun while learning!
The students did a great job reading LOUD and PROUD! I am so proud of their fluency!
