We’ve been having weekly Skype calls with Ms Lirenman’s class in Surry, BC to play “Guess Our Mystery Number” and to improve our sense of numeracy. We’ve been slowly building up to larger numbers. This week we used the numbers up to forty. This is what it looked like during the call as Ms Lirenman’s class tried to guess our number (you can see it taped on the calendar in the top right of the picture).
And then we tried to guess their number. You can see that we were getting very close.
I recently started using Skype and education.skype.com as a learning tool in my Grade 2 class in China and I absolutely love it. Thanks for the great teaching idea!
