First Graders Share Poems with Alabama Buddies
Mrs. Buckley's students wave to their buddies in Alabama.
The Alabama children wait patiently for the activities to begin.
Suzanne Buckley's first graders recently had an opportunity to say "Hey" in person to their buddies in Mrs. Franklin's class in Alabama! The Keystone students wrote poems about their buddies as part of their study of rhyming words, and the Alabama kids returned the favor for their Keystone friends. The students met face to face via video conference and had a great time getting acquainted. The activity went so well that the teachers decided to have the classes collaborate through video conferencing for a second time later in the school year!
