Gingerbread Mission - Nolan and Elie Global Work!

Today in class here in New Zealand we spent time looking at a piece of writing - nothing unusual in that however we were looking at a story written by two students in Mrs Yollis classroom in the USA, Nolan and Elie.    We loved reading their writing in class - we were all given a copy of their writing, we shared it to every student and converted it to a google doc.  

We then created a plan for our writing - the story by Nolan and Elie was left at a cliffhanger and our challenge was to end it! When we created the Google Doc we shared it with Mr Webb and also Mrs Yollis.  This created a surprise for our students, because while it was Monday mid-day here in New Zealand, it was Sunday afternoon in California and Mrs Yollis was online and started editing our work.   You can read the original post by the students from Mrs Yollis classroom here and we will be posting our work in the coming days.

  1. Dear Mr. Webb and writers,

    What a thrill it was for me to be reading your "make your own ending" story in real time. Can you believe that you are 21 hours ahead of me? Right now it is Sunday, at 8:00 P.M. in Los Angeles, and I see it is Monday at 5:00 P.M. where you are! It really helps a person understand time zones when you have a connection like ours.

    I will be sharing your documents with my students tomorrow. They are going to be thrilled to read your fabulous creative stories.

    See you online!

    Your writing friend,
    Mrs. Y♥llis
