Interest in Flat Connections
For the past 5 years, my classes of 6 -8 years olds, have embraced blogging and the use of social media as a way of sharing and reflecting on learning and engaging in conversations and collaborations with other classes around the world. I'm excited about my Preps (4 and 5 year olds) being part of a global learning neighbourhood.

Hello Amanda,

It's been a busy week for me. I have been preparing activities for my Tigers and their parent to work in class sharing how their family celebrate different occasion. 

Can you send me your skype id through my inbox? Thanks and speak with you soon.

We can sing and dance for you. They can introduce themselves first. Talk about the weather maybe. (This is something new for them. So please bare.)

We can't wait to hear from you..

Cheers!
