First Interactions

Yesterday I spent the day meeting my virtual grade 4/5 classroom from Churchill Alternative School in Ottawa, Ontario.  What a good first day!  We spent about 30 minutes skyping and getting to know each other.  Each student came up to the iPad, Isaac, and introduced themselves then asked me a question.  It was funny how much I had in common with this class!  They asked questions like what my favourite movie or book was as a kid.  It was really interesting to hear that even though I was in love with Space Jam and A Series of Unfortunate Events over ten years ago, these kids loved these movies and books too!  That made me feel a little less young.

After talking to Shauna a little further about Churchill Alternative, it sounds like a really interesting place.  I’m so fortunate to have been linked up with such a fun group of students.  I can’t wait to hear some of their stories during their Language lesson on Monday!

  1. Hi Anna,

    It’s so exciting to read about your experiences “in” our room on here! Do you mind if I link to your posts on our class blog? I’m sure the kids would love to hear about themselves!
