I am looking for Spanish Classes to do a Skype call with and a Chemistry Class do try mystery element - using the periodic table.  I am at a small hs in Colorado.  We are on MST.  Please let me know if you are interested.

I'm often invited to Skype into schools to meet children who are doing my poems in their classrooms.  You can find them by simply Googling JOSIE'S POEMS.  They love to meet me, learn a little about me, and they have their questions ready.  They want to know where I live and it is a joy to hold my camera to my window where they can see the beauty of the Yorkshire Dales.  It's all golden now but will soon change.  They like to perform some of my poems (but please teachers, get them away from mumbling into a piece of paper because poetry is a performing art).  Often they've done pictures for my website - but sometimes in secondary schools, they've done animations, film or photography.  I've been a teacher all my life and so I love to go back into classrooms and feel I still have something which is useful for you all.  I hope to see you soon.  Google JOSIE'S POEMS and you can see about booking a Skype visit.  It's not expensive at all.

HI BJP and Kathy K

I would love to Skype with my 7th or 8th Grade classes and my 3rd Graders. Please let me know if you would like to also?


Happy New Year!

I love skype. My high school book group has skyped with book groups far away and some in our area too. My group is part of the YALSA YA Galley Program, so we are reading the newest of the new. Would love to talk books with kids from other schools.

I am new to TLNING and was motivated to join because of this group. I teach preK- 8th and our schedule is flexible. We are a parochial school in NE, CST. My students are very eager to SKYPE. We purchased a webcam but have not yet connected with another classroom. Please let me know if you would be interested in setting up a SKYPE session at any grade level (K- 8th), Thanks!

Hello Kathy K

Today was our last school day for 2010. We'll be back on Jan. 3rd. What blocks of time do you visit with kindergarten classes? If we can jive in our schedules, I would be happy to Skype with your kids.

My experience has been that a few questions from each side, and answers rehearsed ahead, work well; maybe add in a song from each side if desired is plenty of interaction each time. Let me know if interested.
