Skype the classroom
Nepal — Portugal — Russia
Skype session with a wonderful educator from Nepal Bibash Thapa. His cute students sang their national song and danced for us. We sang a «Hello song» and introduced ourselves talking about names, age, family, hobbies and favorite school subjects. Later on an educator from Portugal Rosa Ferreira joined us with her lovely pet cat.
During this session my 2-graders learnt the names of the continents, countries and their capitals. We found Portugal and Nepal on the map, learnt that Portugal is washed by the Atlantic ocean and Nepal borders on India and China. Thanks a million for your efforts both respected educators and students. Hope to continue our collaboration in a new school year!
A teacher-trainer from Nepal Bibash Thapa wrote on his Facebook page:
