Our grade 1 classes have been busy connecting with grade 1 students from the American School Milan, Italy. The focus of this idea was to share stories that we have written in class and to listen to stories written by students in another country. Our 1v class participated in a live Google Hangout session and read via webcam to the students in Milan. They listened to some stories that were read by the students from American School Milan, too. Our students read and listened wonderfully and described the stories they listened to enthusiastically afterwards.
