|SOLS Challenge Day 17|
Recently, though, we discovered Skype. What a fun twist to our weekly conversations! We get to speak "face-to-face." We are able to share in the little changes-- braces on my neice's teeth, the new tile in my sister-in-law's bathroom, or my nephew's new dorm room.
Sunday calls have a new look, a new feel, and a new sound, thanks to Skype. It's the best thing since sliced bread.
Note: There are many ways to use Skpe to connect with other classrooms or even authors! Here are some resources:
