Aloha Friends

We had another very special Skype today. We met our new friends in Honolulu, HI! They are kindergarten students that were eager to see snow...we will have to Skype again when there is snow on the ground.
Before the Skype we checked out their classroom blog, Happy Talk. In addition, we looked up Honolulu on Google Earth. Let's just say we were about to catch the next plane out of Cincy for Honolulu!

Our new friends asked us about what we are learning, our school, and our weather. We asked them similar questions. On their blog, we saw that they worked with the book How the Grinch Stole Christmas. We will be studying this book on our Grinch Day, Friday. They also shared some of their work.

It is a Christmas Tree.

We learned that it is warm all year. They children were all dressed in shorts. They love to swim!

One of our students asked if the children have ever seen a shark in the ocean. Most have seen a shark, but in the local aquarium.

We also learned about Drama. Students at this school have Drama as a Special...how cool!

We cannot wait to catch up with them again soon!

We have been using Skype to communicate with several different first grade classrooms around the country (and Canada, too!) and my kiddos love it! We had a "rhyme-off" with our Vermont friends last week. Glad to hear there are other classrooms using Skype.
