Wanted! A Global Classroom~

WANTED!
A global classroom~ 


Our goal~
Nurture and reinforce an attitude of respect for cultures around the world.
Enable the kids to see the similarities and celebrate the differences of many cultures.

We will...
 Explore how people around the world live?

We want to know…
  • How do they go to school?
  • What kind of houses do they have?
  • What do they eat?
  • What sports do they play?
  • What kind of clothes do they wear?
  • What celebrations do they have?
  • What is a day like for kids around the world?

Would your class like to be a part of our global classroom?
Lets connect!

Hi Deb,
I would love to connect our classes!
I am Cristina and I teach in Romania. Currently I am teaching 2nd graders and we inquire into cities around the world, more specifically into system within a city (transportation, sanitation, culture etc).
We used both Skype and Voicethread so it is up to you which one you would like to use.
My blog is here http://ateacherswonderings.posterous.com/ and my e-mail is surreallyno@gmail.com.
I am surreallyno on Twitter. Cheers!

We'd love to send you a mascot that you could photograph around your school (and vice versa!)
Hoping to hear from you soon.

Hi! Love the idea. But...we are also in Ohio, so probably not all that different from your kiddos. We would be happy to connect if you are interested. Plus - if other classrooms you connect with would like to connect with us too, that would be great.

Hi from Western Australia!

I'm teaching a Year 6 class for 4 weeks, and would love to connect & share with your class. I'm introducing my students to Glogster, but would be happy to teach them how to contribute to a Voicethread.

You can contact me via Twitter @mgraffin or my blog http://areliefteachersjourney.blogspot.com

Hi Deb,

I am a grade 2 teacher in Ontario, Canada. I would love to connect with your class(maybe blogging buddies) beginning next Fall if you are interested. I will be introducing class blogging and in reading through your posts I see that we have some pretty similar ideas so I think it would be a great match. So far I have a teacher blog and I am developing the class blog. I am on Twitter if you would like more info about me; Username is mmesek
I look forward to your response.
