Tool # 6

Skype is an excellent tool to use with kindergarten.  This tool allows students to have visual access to people, places, and subjects that are part of their curriculum.  What better way to see real life mammals than skype a zoologist in San Diego! 
Skype allows students to meet authors and have real time discussions about how authors get their ideas. Students can also meet with other students to learn about cultures, languages, and interests all of the US and the globe.

I thought this tool would be great as the year progresses and students have a collection of sight words that they can read and write.  Students can write a sentence or thought about the word and add it to the wall.  This allows for some differentiation with different learning styles.  My wallwisher is Pink Piggy Word Wall.
