Sri Lanka

Today we had an opportunity to Skype with a student who is currently vacationing in Sri Lanka. Thank you to her parents for showing persistence and connecting virtually with our class.

Our students asked, “do you have animals there?” “How far away is it and how long was the plane ride?” “Why is it night there and it’s morning here?”




We learned a lot and we heard about her wonderful adventures. The Skype call generated fabulous writing from our students. Who will we Skype with next? If you have a family member who is willing to connect with us, please let us know.
