Here is a listing of our students. I put the Skype Usernames for Ms. Katz’s students. I tried to send out a message to all of my students with the Usernames of everyone that I have information on.
For this activity we will discuss a topic from Hurricane Song with Ms. Katz’s classes. You will need to discuss how the topic relates to you personally and how it relates to the characters in the book. While you can Skype the discussion, you must post some comments to the blog. Make sure that Ms. Katz’s students have your blog addresses so that they can post to your blog as well as their class blog. I want you to post to their class blog as well as your own. Thanks.
