Our kindergarteners in Christa McClintock's class had a really FUN connection with my friend Christy Brennan's first graders.
We came together in Google Hangout to celebrate Poetry Month.
To make even more exciting......They are 1069 miles away in Coopertown, Pennsylvania.
The day before, Christy and I planned our connection and decided to create a collaborative poem together with the two classes.Messing Around On The Monkey Bars by Betsy Franco. All of the children love reading poems back and forth from this poetry book. There are also several poems in here that I knew would be perfect for our students to add their own words to during our connection.
Our kindergarteners and Christy's 1st graders had the best time. It was a fun topic and also fun being at the zoo to tie some of these together too.

Have an amazing rest of your Poetry Month everyone....And try something easy and fun like this with your little ones too.
