Our Classroom Handshake

Our class is participating in a new flatclassroom project, that will connect us with a class in Seattle, Washington and a class in Auckland, New Zealand for the next three months.  As part of this project, we were given the task of creating a classroom handshake, or introduction to send to our new learning partners.

It was amazing to watch the students working so hard on this over the last few days.  Students were given the role of either narrator, editor, writer or photographer.  They were engaged in their job and worked independantly to create the Voicethread that is below.

Let us know what you think.  We would love to read your comments!

Great job everyone! Your voicethread has some awesome pictures and a lot of information about your classroom and your school. Best wishes as you begin working with students in Seattle and Auckland

Thank you Ms. Nairn for letting me know about your blog. I love to read writing done by kids. I am so impressed with the connections you have made around the world. Just think, you are teaching people around the world about what life is like at Harold Hatcher. How cool is that!? I will definitely check in with you again.
