Hello Again!

We recently did a "Round Robin" amongst our grade level in which each teacher spoke about their particular country within the region of Oceania. The kids loved that they were given the opportunity to learn about 5 other countries besides our own.

Welcome to Ms. Parks' Class' Blog!

I am Ms. Parks-- a 2nd Grade teacher @ New Town Elementary in Waxhaw, NC. Our school has been focusing on Globalization, and this year we were lucky enough to have a VIF teacher come from New Zealand. Our Grade level has been focusing on the region of "Oceania" and have been studying the various countries of this region.

As a grade level that has a VIF teacher, we are apart of a program that intogrates globalization into our curriculum. As part of the program, we needed to create a blog and interact with others from around the world. I hope you enjoy exploring our page as we learn how to blog, and as we learn more about the world.
