Connecting Across the Globe with Song
I wish I could start by sharing the video of beaming faces and beautiful voices of the students who sang to us and were our audience via Skype on Thursday. The energy and pride of these 5th graders, who took the stage, singing to us in English, and ending with a beautiful song in Spanish, was quite powerful. Unfortunately, because of privacy rules, words will have to describe the exciting 20 minute call between my 4th grade class and Greta's 5th grade students in Argentina on their last day of school before summer vacation. I am positive that the students depict the scene way better than I could, so here is a post from Alex, who went home and blogged even though school was over.
It was priceless to be the first class that these students had ever Skyped with in the U.S. I hope that my students found the experience to be equally memorable.
Thank you Greta and your fantastic students for sharing such a special time with us!
