Hello all,

I'm interested in starting some collaborative projects for the upcoming school year with one rather small glitch - the children I teach are junior and senior kindergarten and in Canada that means 4-6 year olds. Specifically, the topics I'm interested in but not limited to are: cultural traditions, esp. around holiday times, living vs. non-living things, life cycles of plants and animals (maybe also looking at migratory paths, etc). I'd be up for any other great ideas (something to do with art??) and while I don't mind being the "scribe" for my kidlets, maybe a sharing of audio/video files would work best. Remember now, I'm a newbie at this kind of stuff, but am relatively tech savvy. Besides, this kind of collaboration would do wonders to expand the understanding and empathy of children around the world, so I'm willing to try anything!!!!

Hi Peter!

My name is Judy Pierson and I teach senior kindergarten in Milwaukee Wisconsin.  Am new to collaborative projects and would love to try it out.  Would love to somehow integrate reading and writing into the project especially later in the year.  Would be up for life cycles of plants (we study pumpkins in the fall), migration as we study monarch butterflies in the fall as well or any other ideas.

Hi all,
My name is Suzyana and I am a Kindergarten teacher from Miramar, Florida, USA. I teach at a Title I school (a low socioeconomic public school) and trully love my profession. This is my first time ever to join in any group of global collaboration. Come and visit my class website to get to know my wonderful students and some of the things we do.

Hello Peter

Just let me know when you might want to get some things started. i have a class of 18 5 and 6 year olds in NH. We are ready to get started on some collaborative projects. What do you have in mind? I have being working with Tracy. The more the merrier!

Hi Tracy,

Thanks so much for sharing the info. I'd love to join you in one (or more!) projects, and you sound like just the person to talk to about wikis. I know what they are but have NO idea how to start or maintain one. I don't know what Math Trails is but it sounds intriguing. I'll definitely check out your blog. Have you been doing that with your kids for a while? Do you get much interaction from parents, etc. about the blog?

Keep in touch!!

P.S. Guelph is certainly not too close !!

Hello Peter,
My name is Tracy. I also teach two JK/SK blended Classes. We may be too close for you but I thought I would contact you and see. We are from Guelph!
I love to collaborate and learn new things from other educators. I love to video conference & skype. I am thinking of some different ways to use Skype this year, for example contacting authors to see if they would be willing to do an interview with us. I also have a project started that would include animals and collaboration. You can find more info here at our Webkinz Exchange Blog
I am also planning some Wikis for Math Trails that will include collecting data and then summarizing the info. Your class could participate in the Math Trail and then add your data too. I would love to hear from you, and some of your ideas too. Check out our blog at Westwood Wonderkids
