  1. Great job Mrs. Cassidy!! I love what you are doing in your classroom! Thanks for sharing my project too! :)

  2. Kathy, Thank you for a wonderful presentation. I loved the videos of the students getting dressed for winter as that was my life for a long time. Now I live in a warm climate but what a terrific idea to share. The way the idea grew shows how a simple idea can take off. I also really appreciated your different suggestions as well as the students’ participation and comments at the end.

    As always, you rock my world.

  4. Here are some ways to get started with connecting with other classrooms:

    Skype in the Classroom–Register for free and then search the other members for a classroom you would like to connect with.

    ePals–Free to register and then search through the projects others have created or create your own for others to join.

    Projects by Jen–Register for one of Jen’s projects and connect with others doing the same project. (K – 6)

    I thought your idea for the video was very creative. I like all the interesting questions that it generated from the students.
