"I'm interested! K-5 classes running from 740-215 eastern time zone. Elemtechteachr at gmail dot com. The hardest part is finding a similar grade time in our schedules. Maybe someone will be a match. :)"
"Margo - Where are you located? I would love to try and put something together for next year. You can contact me at email@example.com if you are interested for next year. I am located in Central Illinois. I have 4th and 5th graders in the mornings…"
"Sallie, I love your wix website. I teach k-5 technology and we recently went virtual which means I am scrambling for software to use since the software I had is no longer compatible. Thanks for sharing your resources."
"I teach technology and K-2 and I would also like to trying skyping with other classrooms. I wanted to get this going last year.
My goal was to skype with an elementary school author, and the school year completely got away from me. We…"
Do you want to Skype again?? I am in Hazlet, NJ. I think I may still have you in my Skype friends from the last time. Let me know.. It was fun last time... Wed could do the same format with asking questions about school and fun things…"
"I have run a week-long summer computer camp for the last four years for entering grades 2nd - 5th. Kids in 2nd and 3rd grades attend from 10 - 12 and 4th and 5th graders attend from 1 - 3 each day. My 5th graders going into 6th grade…"

I am very interested in Skyping with you in NJ... Let me know if you are interested.. I have grades1-4 here... I teach computers and Basic Skills and my schedule is pretty flexible..
"I know you posted this in May but I was wondering if you would still be interested in skyping with classes at a school in NJ. THe second grade studies different type of communities so that might be place to start. Looking forward to hearing from you."
"Could you please share more information about how and when you would apply the movement part of the camp. I'd like to try to add a bit of movement for my older kids, but am not sure how it would apply w/out stirring them up."
"Hi April - saw your comment about Skyping. We would love the opportunity to connect our classrooms with yours. I teach K-5 technology and when my students Skype, I try to set up similar grade levels (depending upon what schedules will allow). I have…"
"April, Terri and I did end up Skyping... 3 times actually. I connected 3 of my 2nd grade classes with 3 of her 3rd grade classes. For me, I am trying to connect each of my classes with another class somewhere in the US (or Canada for 5th grade). We…"
I am an elementary technology teacher (K-5) and absolutely love my job! I am also a supermom of 3 - M is 21, S & S (yes, twins) are 19 and all away at college. It's just me and hubby (and our pet Beagle)!
How often do you see each of your classes?
I see my 2nd - 5th grade classes once a week with a rotation schedule on Fridays. Kindergarten and 1st grade meet two times a week with a rotation schedule on Fridays.
I like your avatar. It seems similar to mine. Mine is from doppelme.com. I am kind of new to technology. I teach grade one at an elementary/high school. We don't have an IT person to teach computers so the classroom teacher does it. I am having fun learning as much as I can and am enjoying blogging, too.
Hi Terri- I'm glad we're friends, too. I don't have much background - I've had a mac for about 5 years now and just love it. I have been doing more technology just in the past year... started out with voicethread and then started my blog last spring. It can be addictive. I spend lots of my spare time on the computer. Did I tell you I am from the States? Don't have any kids but I come from a big family so have lots of nieces and nephews. I am sure you will be a great help to me so thanks. I'm giving a workshop at the end of the month on blogging. I made a wiki and I'm going to give my presentation from that. Instead of a handout people will go away with a business card with my wiki address. Instead of typing in addresses all they will have to do is click. I will check you out on twitter.
