Rockland Read-In

I’m soooo excited!!!! Tomorrow our school, Chestnut Ridge Middle School is taking part in the 10th annual Rockland Read-In to promote literacy in schools.  We asked for volunteers to come read to our students throughout the day and I’m soo happy to announce that my mom is going to be reading to my Content Support class via Skype!  I’m all about technology and using it in my classes and I love that it is providing us with an opportunity to connect with people far away.  My family lives in upstate NY and so I don’t get to see them as often as I’d like, but Skype has been the next best thing….so the fact that we are now using Skype to connect with my class & promoting literacy at the same time…TWO THUMBS UP!
