It’s the fourth day of Read Around the Planet. Classes are still working hard on their presentations and asking great questions of their partners. Here are a few highlights of today:
Today we had some great examples of how to get the other class involved in the presentation. It’s nice to see classes move beyond the simple two presentation format, and build in more interaction.
- One school had skits of fairy tales: the partner school had to guess which fairy tale the skit was based on.
- Another school shared information about famous people, followed by a quiz question on what was just presented.
- Another school had a graph of their favorite Dr. Seuss books, and they asked our students questions about the graph.
Many of the classes are sharing great maps and visuals about their community. Here are some pictures shared from E. P. Clarke Elementary in St. Joseph, MI.
Today I had my first connection that took 20 minutes to solve the technical problem. While the class was waiting, I put on my hat to show the students. I showed them our snow out the window also. The students waited so patiently, and the interaction ended up being a great experience.
Hope your RAP connections continue to go well! Feel free to comment if you have additional insights!
