Today Mrs Lerra’s grade 5 class received pen-pal letters from students in China. This is part of our attempt to raise our students’ global awareness. Hopefully, we can begin communicating with them online to speed up the communication since using the post office is not that efficient. But for now we will write back with good ‘ol pencil and paper.
If all goes well I would like each classroom to have opportunities to collaborate with peers across the globe on projects that are relevant to student learning. It would be pretty cool to have students from China and Bedford working on a bully prevention video or collecting data on precipitation in their region. But for now, we are taking baby steps.
