*The first part of this story is in last week's Wonder Wednesday post.
*On Monday, I had a major first in my teaching career.
*The last few years I have been on the receiving end of some incredible Skype sessions. Most of these have been with authors and some educators.
*After getting an email from Dawn Hundley about Mrs. Jenkins and her two fifth grade language arts classes, I had the opportunity to be on the giving end of a Skype session. Go figure.
*It turns out that Dawn Hundley and Kathy Jenkins are teachers out in Maryland and came across this blog. I live in the Twin Cities.
*Kathy Jenkins began to use some of the ideas that I post on the blog; specially my "Life Lessons" and my "Music Mondays." These are two ideas I use to promote writing and keeping a writer's notebook.
*Dawn wanted to surprise Kathy with a Skype session so that I could chat with her and her students.
*I was completely amazed that anyone would want to "chat" with me. But I was thrilled at this opportunity.
*We talked about the different "life lessons", the selection of "music Monday" songs, and of course books.
*The kids had some awesome questions and I so enjoyed the conversation.
*Here are a few pictures from the afternoon. It was a true wonder for me...
