Do you remember one of my last posts about having new friends? Well, this is a good opportunity to keep on talking about them. After that great morning of meeting and sharing breakfast with Silvia and Terry, we continued keeping in touch via skype.
We had talked about doing some projects together with our classes. So, we decided to match her Kindergarten students from USA with our Pre-K classes (Ponies and Deer)from Peru in a video conference. Miss Marijú was also excited and ready to collaborate with us, too.
Last Tuesday was the big day for our first video conference. This time we played a game called “Arbolito del Peru” that Mrs. Gallo (their Spanish teacher) had taught them. It is a counting out type of game, where students introduce themselves with their names. SJEDS students did it in Spanish and of course, we did it in English.
We had a great time together :)
It is amazing to now that nowadays technology let us develop this kind of projects, even with the little ones! I am really proud to say that this is the first time that children from Pre-Kinder participate in a video conference at our school.
We are planning two more video conferences with our new friends in USA over the next two weeks to sing songs and read a bilingual story together. Stay alert and see you soon with more news!
