Skype Call with Alaska

This week our 4th graders had the unique opportunity to share their poems with a class in Alaska. Our friends started by sharing some stories they created for the 100 Word Challenge and introduced some interesting stories to us through book talks. Our rocketeers then shared some Animal Acrostic Poems, that were based on their research on unusual animals. We shared some of our Panamanian Molas we created on different animals as well.

The last few minutes of our call were dedicated to a Question and Answer session to learn more about where we live. We learned that it gets very cold in Alaska. In fact, we even got to see some snow in our friends' school! We also learned that there is a three hour difference between Mississippi and Alaska.
Both classes did an excellent job as audience members and presenters! We hope to continue sharing projects with our new friends. Check out our video below for clips from our call.


  1. Thank you for taking time to Skype with us! We loved seeing your work and answering your questions about Alaska. I hope we can Skype again later this school year!

  2. Dear Class,
    It was really fun Skyping with you a while ago. We hope to do it again. We really liked your video. We really liked the poems and Skyping with you.
    Happy Halloween!

  3. Mrs. Stading's Class,

    Thanks for taking the time to leave us a comment! We enjoyed sharing our work and chatting with you. Let us know if you want to share more projects later on in the school year. Oh, and we hope you had a very fun Halloween!
