B4 and B3 had a great Skype session with 2KM and 2KJ in Australia.
reading 'Flat Stanley', and we asked each other
some questions about the story.
It was a good chance to try some of our inference and recall skills.
Lots of children liked the chapter about Stanley helping to catch
the sneak thieves in the Museum.
We also got to ask some questions to compare our schools.
We have 9 Year 2s, but in their school there are 100 Grade 2s!
2KM and 2KJ each have 21 students.
B4 and B3 each have 18 students.
Children at both schools have art, music and PE.
They learn Indonesian and we learn Maori, so we showed each other how we count to 10.
At the end of the call the children decided that it would be fun if they make Flat Stanleys and send them for holidays in New Zealand or Australia.
Watch out in a couple of weeks to read about the adventures of the Flat Stanleys.
Have you ever read 'Flat Stanley'?
What was your favourite chapter?
Thanks to the student teacher in 2KM/2KJ for this transcript of the session:
