Skype 2 with Ty Allan Jackson

On World Read Aloud Day (March 7), students in Mrs. Young's Day 2 sixth hour Integrated Technology class met author Ty Allan Jackson over Skype to listen to him read from his book When I Close My Eyes. The students enjoyed the Skype so much and were so interested in reading his book Danny Dollar Millionaire Extraordinaire: The Lemonade Escapade that they decided as a class to read the book together and Skype back with Ty after their reading. On May 23, the students had the chance to talk to Ty about Danny Dollar and hear more about his new books and life as a writer.  The students had a wonderful time (despite some minor technical issues) talking with Ty and are now so excited to read his new book (due out in July): The Superdupa Kid.  They would like to give Ty a special thank you for so graciously taking his time to talk to them.  The students at New London Intermediate School are now big fans!
