Mortimer, Robert Munsch, and childhood memories
Today in class we had the opportunity to skype into a grade 3 class in Thompson, Manitoba and read them the book Mortimer. I remember when I was a kid, waiting anxiously for that time before bed where my mom would read me classics like Robert Munsch. Now that I am 18 it is a weird to think back to the days where I was the anxious listener waiting to see the outcome of the conflicts Robert Munsch made so famous. Robert Munsch created memories that will be forever apart of my childhood and the opportunity to share my love for his books was a great experience. I've always been one that believes we can connect with people beyond our own personal social bubble to create memories and experience. This skype reading session was a great example of that belief in practice. I hope I get to continue to use technology as a way to connect with people on a unique basis outside of the norm of society.
