Third Grade is Video Conferencing with Italy

Third grade has been following Jose, the travel bear, along to Italy through the SJEDS Travel Blog. Since the stuffed bear left with two teachers from San Jose Episcopal Day School from Jacksonville, the class has been keeping up with their adventures by reading their blog posts daily, learning about Italy's geography, practicing to roll their "R"s by speaking Italian and celebrating the bear's birthday under the sukkah.

Students have been writing about their Italy connection in their journal in class. To top their experience, we had a very special visit on Tuesday: A visit from Jose, the travel bear himself, SKYPED from Italy into our classroom!!  Students were able to ask questions about the trip and share with the teddy bear and his teacher/travel companions what they had learned.

What an incredible opportunity! We can't wait to skype with other countries in the future.
