The distance learning opportunity, dubbed Monster Match, challenged each class to build monsters prior to the videoconference.

Each class built their own unique monster and then they were tasked with re-creating the other class’ monster using only a written description to put everything together.

Students in Rebekah Springer’s second grade class at Fairley Elementary are all smiles as they show off the monsters they created during a recent videoconference learning activity.

Once the “off camera” work was completed, the video connection — facilitated through the CiTi BOCES Distance Learning Program – was established and students shared their creations with one another.

The classes noted similarities and differences in their monsters and discussed the importance of following directions and clear communication.

As part of this learning exercise, students honed their reading, writing, researching and speaking skills.
