|Yes - that's Sr. Wooly himself in a virtual visit to our classroom!|
Last fall I contacted Sr. Wooly about the possibility of skyping with my Spanish 4+ class. At the time he was busy working on upgrading his website and adding lots of cool features and in the following months, he was diligently working on filming and editing "Ya Está Muerto", which was released in January 2016. (Seriously, if you haven't seen it yet, you need to subscribe to his website and check it out, along with many other songs and activities available on his site, even a video game that I haven't tried out yet.) He is one busy man, but he told me to ask him again a few weeks into the new year.

When the students arrived on April 6, I had the computer hooked up to the smart board and chairs placed in an arc so he could view the entire class. At 11:10, on the dot, we received his Skype call and the fun started.
|That's a BIG personality on a little screen.|
I wanted to make sure en ended our session at the agreed upon time. Sr. Wooly said later, in an email, that if we would have had more time he would have sung a song for the students. Wow, can you imagine how the students would have reacted to that!?!
There are two other Spanish teachers at my school and both were able to stop in for a little and listen to the conversation.
I owe a big THANK YOU to Sr. Wooly. That's one Spanish class my students will not forget.
