A Visit with Mrs. Claus

from CESA 7 Educational Technology Services

Program image

This program is an introduction to videoconferencing and allows your students the opportunity to visit with Mrs. Santa Claus using technology. She will talk about the tech used to make the connection between the students' school and the North Pole. Children will have the opportunity to ask questions about her, Santa Claus, reindeer, and the North Pole. (Factual information will be given whenever possible.) In order to make the best use of the time, Please have children think about or write down questions ahead of time and select those who will ask them.Mrs. Claus will do her best to answer as many questions as possible, but time constraints usually mean not all children will get a chance to ask a question. Listening and questioning skills will be reviewed by Mrs. Claus. After questions, they will hear an age-appropriate story and finally wrap up their visit with a fun song and dance. NOTE: If you have a request for a specific story, please inform Mrs. Claus prior to the program date/time. Also, if students are making return visits, please let her know.
