We're planning a gizmo call to Eddie's class on Wednesday next week. In order to avoid any awkward silences let's see if we can make a list of some pre-planned questions the grade 5 students can answer ... just something to get them talking and feeling comfortable.
Why not take a look at their class blogs and see if there is anything you find interesting there about what they are learning. (I liked their comments maps.)
Post your ideas for converstaion starters in the comments to this post.
