Last week, Mrs. Steeves' 5th grade did a Mystery Skype with a class in Maryland. This week Mrs. Caruso's class had a Mystery Skype with a class in Arkansas, Mrs. Evans' class had an international Mystery Skype with a class in Uruguay, and Ms. Libby's class had an international Mystery Skype with a class in Canada! It was so amazing to connect with these classes.
In addition, two of my George E. Jack book groups were able to Skype with the authors of books they recently completed with me. Author Jennifer Chambliss Bertman did a lunchtime Skype yesterday with three fourth graders who recently read Book Scavenger with me for our book group. Today, Christina Diaz Gonzalez, author of Moving Target, Skyped with three 5th graders who read Moving Target. We had a great time meeting these authors and learning more about them!
More Skypes are scheduled for the upcoming weeks including two author Skypes, an international Mystery Skype, a national Mystery Skype, and a Mystery National Parks Skype. We are so excited to find out where we will be "visiting" next via Skype!
