On Friday afternoon we had our first Skype chat of the year! We skyped with Mrs. Yollis and her class of third graders all the way from California.
Mrs. Yollis’ class is in the suburbs of Los Angeles. That is a long way away from our class in Connecticut. Actually it is about 2,890 miles away!
Mrs. Yollis’ class is one of our main blogging buddies so it was great to get to talk with them.
In our Skype chat we shared facts about our states, our towns, and our schools. While Mrs. Yollis’ class told us information about where they live, we were busy taking notes.
And they took notes when we told them about where we live.
In math we have been learning about how to sort and compare information, or data. Here is some of the data that we shared during our Skype call:
Comparing Our States
Comparing our Communities
Comparing Our Schools
We had a blast meeting Mrs. Yollis and her class!
Since we are such good blogging buddies, we will be Skyping with them again very soon.
(Mrs. Yollis’ class also shares the Reading Round-Up blog with us. If you haven’t visited the Reading Round-Up yet, you really should check out the post where Sheriff Yollis and Sheriff Salsich talk about non-fiction features. It’s a real humdinger!)
