We have also met other classes through Skype. Ms. Nelson's class just completed a Mystery Number game with another class in Connecticut. Students build number sense by trying to guess the other class's secret number. Students asked questions like "Is it odd?", "Does it have a 7 in the ones place?", and "Is it greater than 50?". More than anything Skype allows our students to connect to people that we would not have had the possibility to meet.
Here is Ms. Nelson's class playing the Mystery Number game.
Here are some Thank You's made in Chatterpix that Ms. Schwanke's class sent to Paul Czajak.
