Kindergarten Skypes to Egypt!
This year our kindergarten classes at Porter Ridge have had a special opportunity to partner with a classroom across the world! We have developed a friendship with a Kindergarten class in Cairo, Egypt. Our classroom has communicated weekly with the Egyptian class through Skype sessions and emails.Full Story
Our fifth graders experienced an International Festival, thanks to their own classmates! For reading and writing, students learned and used strategies to research a country of their choice. For three weeks, students worked together to sort through all of the information they found and chose the most important and interesting facts to use to “sell” their country- just like travel agents! Students created brochures, posters, commercials, and skits to get their classmates interested in visiting their chosen country.
