This theme is going to carry over into our "One World" field day where each class will research a country and create a banner representing that country. My classroom was paired with a Kindergarten class to research New Zealand. So, I went to my favorite professional development, networking tool and gave a shout out for a teacher who would like to connect classrooms. Within 5 minutes (yes, 5 minutes...that is why I love twitter, but that is another blog post), I had made a connection with a teacher from New Zealand who was up to challenge.
Here is our first blog post introducing ourselves a little and asking a few questions. Additional updates, results of my first attempt at a #globalclassroom project, and of course pictures will be coming soon!
