I walked into the classroom this morning and Skype was on the projector. I was a nervous wreck! My partner Nidhi was so excited that she could not stop smiling! I sat down in my seat and at that second…BAM… Mr. Macmillan is trying to call our quadblogging buddies 5SK but they did not pick up the call. Then Mr. Macmillan tried again. Then they popped up on the screen. Nidhi kept counting down the people that asked the question already. We were quadblogging with 5SK in north Queensland, Australia.
I was staring at the question I was going to ask on the clear, glass, window. At that moment we were up to ask the questions. Well, I introduced myself as well as Nidhi. I asked first “What sport do you play over there in Australia.” They said cricket, soccer, tennis, horseback riding. After that I was getting the hang of this. The Animals they have over there are neat! Get this; they have sheep and chickens for class pets! Other animals they have are Kolas and Kangaroos and Giraffes right outside of town! I was starting to get jealous that students at 5SK lived in Australia I was very surprised that there school is right next to the beach! Then I knew it would be a lot of fun to go to Australia!
There accent is neat and they have another language. I got to see the principle at the 5SK School. Her name was Ms. Franklin she talked about earthquakes that have happened over there in Australia. They live near the beach and if an earthquake happened it would cause a tsunami at the beach. It was really nice to Skype with our quadblogging buddies and get to know them. Also one more thing they like mangos (like me) they use computers and I pads like us this year. I hope I could Skype with them again!
