I'd also like to thank the special guest on the live interactive webinar, Ms. Karen McMillan. The paper blog was an interesting way to introduce second graders to commenting on blogs!

We've just got some photos of Oscar's adventures while he was in Guangzhou, China during PE activities, in the classroom, in the cafeteria, and in the playground. He also pretended that he was a teacher and our friends in China learned new things and at the same time had fun!

Our friends' classroom
We have participated in a wiki activity with our new friends from Santa Joaquina de Vedruna- Mirasierra in Madrid, Spain. They have shared their voicethread and showed us their science group work, the map of Spain and creative posters. Special thanks to Ms. Maria Sanchez. We can't wait to begin sharing the "Hot Spots" project with you and Ms. Edna Pythian.
Hello! I am Flat Stanley :)
We're participating in Flat Stanley Project, which is based on the book "Flat Stanley" written by Jeff Brown.
Last month we made paper Flat Stanleys, put them in an envelope, and mailed them to our friends at Sunset Elementary School in Craig. Today we were so happy to meet the new guest. Flat Stanley had a very long flight to our country. He came holding his passport with him. After discussing the project, we decided to take him along on outings, take photos, and keep a journal of his experiences. We'll make a little "sleeping bag" for this flat character and treat him as an honored guest!
It's a wonderful way to come together to share and learn from each other.
