Every week, Sheriff Yollis' class and Sheriff Salsich's class meet for a Buckaroo Book Club on Skype over at the Reading Roundup! They've discussed The Garden of Abdul Gasazi and Thank You, Mr. Falker.
The third Buckaroo Book Club was scheduled for today. Unfortunately, it was a snow day in Connecticut, so the students were not at school! Fortunately, Sheriff Salsich was available!
The citizens of Yollis county conducted an interview. Nicole was the photographer, Grace and Adia recorded the interview via TodaysMeet.
Here is a transcript of the interview.
Students tried to think of open-ended questions rather than closed questions.
(Open-ended questions are questions that cannot be answered YES or NO. Here are some examples:
Closed question - "Do you like teaching?" The answer is yes or no.
Open question - "What do you like about teaching?" The question requires a full answer.)
|Students conduct the interview.|
Topics included: teaching, hobbies, and traveling.
|One hobby Sheriff Salsich enjoys is watercolor painting.|
|He shared some of his work with us!|
Here are some better images of the watercolors he shared with us!
|Spring Oak - Wilcox Park|
|Kaye Caulker, Belize|
|Sheriff Salsich lived in Belize for eighteen months. He had no electricity or running water in the village!|
|Sheriff Salsich happily answered each and every question that the interviewers asked.|
|Bye Sheriff Salsich! Everyone has to skedaddle!|
