Skyping with Mrs. Watson and the 2/3’s!

This week, we were able to Skype with our friends in British Columbia, Canada. It is always great to talk with Mrs. Watson and the 2/3’s! Our classes decided to try something different this visit. We thought it might be fun to read together.

If you’re going to read together, why not share a poem from You Read to Me, I’ll Read to You.


This fantastic book allowed the 2/3’s to practice one side of the text and the Techie Kids to practice the other side.

Our text was colored purple and

the 2/3’s text was colored pink.

When the blue text appeared in the middle, we read together!

Listen to see what our poem, The Two Mice, sounded like.

After reading, we learned some super-cool facts about each other.

The 2/3’s have 46 children in their entire school compared to our 400!

There are 17 students in their class compared to the 27 Techie Kids participating in this session.

Our school day is longer by 1 hour and 15 minutes.

We thought it was very cool that some students were able to go home for lunch or have hot lunches delivered to them.

We are very interested in how their class can play in a temperate rainforest.

Everyone thought it would be fun to have a little friend like Chippy the Chipmunk!

Here are some pictures that were taken by our second grade Techie Kids.

We can’t wait to learn more with our buddies!
