Hi Julie, I'm sory I couldn't find time to write back to you. I have too much school works. We watched your voice thread project. My students watc it very cerrufully and they learn your students name from animoto. As they see your students the say their name. Also they ask some questions: 1. When we go there? 2. we have books like theirs. 3. Why do they not speak Turkish? Also, one of my students when we went to garden say that where is Jayson. She said that I like Jayson. Their frinedship is started:) Our project is very nice. Also, I put a video to my blog that they did in the English lesson. As a next project I will make them to draw pictures for them. What do you think about?
I know that sometimes jobs become too much. You are not late. I came back just this week and
I did my voice thread. Next week I will become so busy because we will celebrate our National Children Day at 23 April.We make parties to make our children happy. So, I did voice thread and I will put it into my blog. If you sent me your e-mail I will sent you the link. I wonder your school name. I realized that I don't know your school name while I explain the project to my student:) I said that there are children that live in United States in New York. One of my child was been there and he become happy. Can you give me some information about your school?
Take care, Have a good sprink break, Sevil
