Skyping with Mrs. Price's Class from Australia

Last year I "met" Joan Price, a teacher from Australia, on Twitter. We became friends (we can talk for hours when just the two of us are on Skype) and connected our classrooms. I have been anxiously awaiting the time when I could introduce my crew this year to her class. We had to wait until we switched to daylight savings time in order to have any school time in common. Today we Skyped with them for the first time at 3 pm our time which was 8 am Tuesday morning for them. This year Joan and I matched up our classes so that they each had a buddy in the other class. Because we have more students than they do some of us doubled up. Her class is a combination Prep/Grade 1 class. Prep is comparable to our Kindergarten. It was exciting to get to talk with them today. Ms. Lauren's crew came in to watch because they are going to Skype a class in this school later. Ask your child to tell you all about the things we have learned about them.
