Our New Twitter Friends

We have made some new friends through our crew Twitter account this year and we are already learning so much from them. We are only in the getting to know you stage of our friendship and we hope to learn more and maybe collaborate on some projects in the future.

The first friends we made were Mrs. Price's class from Victoria, Australia. In just a few short days, we have already learned so much about Australia, time zones, weather and more. Below are a few short snippets of our Twitter conversations with them but these are always followed by more discussion and map viewing in our classroom. Enjoy the snippets and feel free to check out our crew Twitter account @MsJillsCrew for more of the conversation. They have sent us more questions tonight that we will answer and discuss tomorrow.





We have also started conversations with two classes from Ohio, Mrs. Mere's class and Mrs. Frazier's class. Here are the beginnings of those conversations.





We can't wait to see what tomorrow will bring.  Be sure to ask your child about this and maybe follow along with us on Twitter.

  1. Talk about connecting with our global community!
    P.S. I think I might have the book 'The Jigaree' - I'll look!

  2. That is so interesting to read! We did not have Twitter (or even the Internet) when I was in school. I went to school in Ann Arbor, Michigan if you want to look it up on a map. Now I live in West Virginia. I know Ms. Jill because she is married to my brother.

  3. I love this! Will you find out where in Ohio those classes are? Sam's dads' family is from Ohio and we have visited before and will possibly visit this spring.
