    I'm going to connect my classroom with two others this year via skype. I want to help the kids across the world connect by letting the classes get to know each other, and in the end, sing a song together via skype.

    The kind of song would be along the lines of The Rainbow Connection. Any ideas for a great song?

    That is really special!! Love the message! :) What age are your students?

    I have 5th graders and they have sung some of these songs for concerts and for some video conferences we have done with our pen pals in Scotland, UK. :)

    Hannah Montana has some neat "friends" songs

    Song of Peace...gave me goose bumps when the kids did it. Love this song. Our kids signed it, also. It was so moving. If you were interested, I could ask our music tch. for a copy of the song and the music. :) There are several YouTube vidoes of it...this one is of an elementary concert, so you can see that younger kids can handle it, too. :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqCinb2y3jU&feature=related

    {{Love to Teach}}} you made my morning. If your music teacher could give me the music to A Song of Peace, I'd love it. I will also ask our music teacher. That is just lovely.

    I will check out the other songs, too, but I think this one will be the Skype song to do with other classes. Thank you !!! xx
