A Poem in my Pocket

My 4th grade computer class connected today with some enthusiastic 5th graders at Searingtown School in New York. We read two choral poems from You Read to Me, I'll Read to You by Mary Hoberman. They had so many fifth graders and we only had 5 fourth graders, but they all enjoyed the connection. My fourth graders told their classroom teacher all about their connection when they returned to pack to go home.
This excitement with connections gives educators something to use for prior knowledge.
As the weather turns quickly to spring around here, any advantage we can find is useful. Remember - 26 days.....
