  10. 11. Student post prompt ( Collaborationnation ) <ul><li>“ What is your favoite holiday and what are some traditions you have?” (74 responses) </li></ul><ul><li>My favorite holiday is the 4th of July which is independence day in America. It is when everyone wears red white and blue (the colors on the flag) and we get together with our family. I go to my aun’ts house and hang out with my cousins. We play sports like baseball, basketball and soccer and when we get hot, we jump in the pool. I think that is the most fun because we make the pool full of waves and play games and stuff. We have hot dogs and hamburgers and other picnic foods like potato and macaroni salad. It is so much fun!! The best part is when we lay down a giant blanket on the ground which all the kids sit on and we watch the fireworks light up the sky. They are all so beautiful and its so much fun to sit with my baby cousins and let them laugh everytime the fireworks sound. Sometimes we get bored and liven the party up by throwing icecubes at eachother and putting them down other peoples backs. It is really cold!! </li></ul>
  11. 12. Most chose Christmas <ul><li>The house smells like evergreen trees. The kitchen smells like ham and various other foods. There are presents laying under the tree. Can you guess what holiday I am thinking of? Well, of course I am talking about Christmas. Christmas is my favorite holiday. I have such great memories at this time of the year. The snow is falling, the heat is blasting making the house all toasty and I am surrounded by the ones I love the most. Some people think that Christmas is all about presents and gifts, but that is not the true reality about Christmas. Christmas is actually about the time you spend with your loved ones. There is nothing like sitting on the couch after a big meal talking with the ones you care the most about. That is what I love about Christmas. Usually there is not a time when everybody in my family can get together, but everybody makes an effort for Christmas. I remember when I was little and all my cousins used to travel hours to spend the Christmas holiday with family. Of course, now that everybody has gotten older it has gotten harder to all meet us, but nevertheless, we still think about each other all the time. </li></ul>
  12. 13. An extra student appears!! <ul><li>What an informative post, thanks for sharing. How nice to see you are communictaing with another class. Here is my answer: I wouldn’t really do anything because i don’t celebrate Christmas, after all it IS for Christians and i am Muslim. So I don’t celebrate it, but we could buy trees and do Christmasy things too you know, but my family don’t really. Some Muslims like me decorate the house, have fun with friends and play games have BBQ’s too and play in pools, visit relatives, go amazing places like Cool Parks and Luna Park and Harbour Bridge. Yes, so there. But as muslims, we have Eid to celebrate, which is a different celebration for a prophet of ours. We do MANY things listed in what i said a few sentences ago. It is SO FUN!!!! Our traditions are go to a religious muslim tower where we pray called “Jamaii”, hard to pronounce i know. We pray or just say prayers at home for god. And some other traditions go visit relatives and eat Arabic or food from our countries (lebanon for me though!). Alot you have to learn there! Think you’ve learn somethings </li></ul>

  19. 22. Videoconferencing with Manila <ul><li>&quot;I remind my students that they are  ambassadors representing their class, school, state, country, continent and hemisphere ....This is especially helpful when doing a recording since it's sort of like 'live t.v.'   It was fun to see the smiles from the kids in Hawkesdale when they realized that the students in Claret were in the audience! Students love working with students......no matter what continent they are on.&quot;  </li></ul>
  20. 23. and some words from Manila <ul><li>“ Thank you also for the opportunity that you have given us to meet your students. Thank you Lorraine for being always around to help us. The AU students were such a big hit among my students. They were all so excited. They were actually caught by surprise since I did not have the chance to meet them prior to our webcast. They all wanted to speak on the microphone. Well, what motivates more a 13 year old boy than to see a pretty girl on video” </li></ul><ul><li>View recording </li></ul>
