Skyping with Dr. June Atkinson
Recently, Mrs. Bittner's 5th Grade Class at Western Union Elementary School experienced a Royal Reader, Dr. June Atkinson, North Carolina Schools State Superintendent, via Skype. Each Week Mrs. Bittner has Royal Readers come into her classroom to read to ther students to help demonstrate how important reading is no matter who you are or what your profession.
Before the Skype Session on Nov. 10, 2010, Dr. Atkinson sent each student a copy of a book that she wrote titled The T-Shirt Named Zee. The students followed along in the book as Dr. Atkinson read. Following the reading, students were able to ask Dr. Atkinson questions they had previously compiled. Questions ranged from different areas concerning her job as State Superintendent to general questions about her.
