It was a fun morning in 2KM and 2KJ today because we skyped with Mrs Yollis and her third graders!
We haven’t been able to skype with Mrs Yollis and her new students yet because of the different time zones. However, now there is daylight saving here in Victoria, and Americans have finished daylight saving, so we have a small window of time where we are at school when Mrs Yollis’ class is!
2KM and 2KJ students came to school early today and it was 8.45am Wednesday morning when we started skyping. Over in California it was 1.45pm Tuesday afternoon!
Mrs Yollis’ class finishes school at 2.21pm. Lots of her students stayed back after the bell to keep chatting!
For our Skype session, we assigned some special jobs to students:
Alana was our greeter. She introduced the class and started our skype call.
Haille and Ava were our typists. They used netbooks to type up the questions, answers and conversations we had.
Jordi and Mia were the photographers. They took photos of the interesting moments during the skype chat.
Our researchers were Charlotte, Molly, Quinn, Liam, Jarrod, Dana and Kayla. They thought of interesting topics to share with our American buddies and found information on the internet.
Other students brought in some special “Australian” items for a show and tell session.
Before our skype call, 2KM, 2KJ and Mrs Yollis’ class organised some questions and answers to share. It was interesting to learn some new information about America. Our researchers enjoyed sharing some Australian facts.
