Kids Speak! 2011~ Authentic Voices of Children Around the World!

 Kids Speak 2011 was launched with the wonders of my first grade students. The first graders began to wonder about the ways people around the world meet their needs. They also wondered how their daily lives may be similar or different from others in our world. The wonders of the kids were posted around our world map, recorded into VoiceThread and then shared with teachers around the world! (Italy, Romania, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Guatemala, United States and Canada!) 

The first grader's are excited! Kids Speak has been live for only 3 days and comments have been posted from Texas, Ohio, Iowa and Bucharest Romania and…more comments are coming!

Check back often to hear the newest additions to Kids Speak as our Global Classrooms begin to answer questions, post their own wonders and add new slides! 

If your class would like to be a part of Kids Speak contact @frazierde on Twitter or visit our Global Classroom Wiki to register!

Most projects run one school year (Sept.-Jan)
I am wondering...
Where are you from? What grade do you teach? Do you have an Educator VoiceThread account?

I just stumbled across this project *again*!!! I am actually a high school teacher- but taking a break until next year when my youngest will be in kinder. I currently train teachers, and run kidworldcitizen.org, where I share ideas to help teachers and parents teach their kids about the world. I'm always, always on the look-out for cool global collaboration projects that get elementary students connected to the world. Can I feature this project on my site? :)
