Newman Students Partner with Swedish Students
Newman Elementary third graders in Terri Rayer’s class have partnered with Ana Bogunić’s Swedish students in Höllviken, Sweden for a yearlong collaboration.
This is their second year to collaborate and the teachers express that when their students have a global audience and personal connection with someone, learning can bloom in unspeakable ways. Reluctant writers can’t wait to contact their partner and share about their learning. In addition, students learned that even though these children live in a different country and culture, they all share many things that bond them.
They even plan to do a coding project together! Kudos to these teachers for collaborating to empower students to find a new pathway in their learning.
