Skyping with Kevin Lemanowicz

Last Friday, we were lucky enough to Skype with a local meteorologist. A meteorologist is someone who studies weather patterns and predicts what the weather will be. They try their best based upon different weather instruments they have like anemometers (measure wind speed), hygrometers (measure humidity), and barometers (measure air pressure). Weather can be a tricky thing though and can change very suddenly!

Kevin Lemanowicz is the chief meteorologist for Fox 25 Boston. He has worked for them since 1996 so he’s very used to the crazy New England weather that we can have. Students brainstormed some questions they had so he could answer them for us. He did such a wonderful job!



Below, you can find videos showing four different questions we asked Kevin Lemanowicz and his responses. The students did such an amazing job of speaking clearly and sharing their wonderful questions even though they were talking to somebody that they see on TV!

  • Part 1 – Why did you want to become a meteorologist?
  • Part 2 – How do you predict weather that will be a day from now?
  • Part 3 – What instruments do you use to predict the weather?
  • Part 4 – What type of weather fascinates you the most?

A special thank you to Mr. Lemanowicz for taking the time to chat with us and for also predicting a warm day the next day. His prediction was right!

    Dear Mr. Avery,

    Skyping with Kevin was so cool . I liked that the green was painted on the wall in the news studio. Do you know if Kevin showed it on the news? He’s awesome. It was so nice of him to take the time to do that.

    Dear Mr. Avery,

    I loved when we got to Skype with Kevin Lemanowicz. I saw the Fox 25 news studio. It is really cool. I think how they spray on the green screen is really cool. I think it would be easier to spray on the green screen because you wouldn’t have to iron it all. I hope we Skype with him again.

    Sincerely,
    Natalie

      Dear Natalie,

      My favorite part of the entire conversation was when he showed us the studio! It was really big! I thought it was neat how they had all the different computers set up to help predict the weather.

      I’d love to paint one of the walls green to use as a green screen. That would be much easier. We don’t have a big enough wall though unless I took down some bulletin boards. It would be so much easier than ironing that big piece of cloth!

      Sincerely,
      Mr. Avery

      Dear Kim,

      My mom and stepdad watch Fox 25 news every morning. My favorite meteorologist has to be Kevin Lemanowicz. Thank you for scheduling for us to skype with Kevin. Do you ever go on tv?

      I like VB because he likes donuts and so do I, and because he seems nice. He’s awesome.

      Sincerely,
      Natalie S ♥

    Dear Mr. Avery,

    Kevin answered some really good questions. I like to Skype with people. It’s really fun! For an example, it was my cousin’s birthday and she was in college so we Skyped her. It was a lot of fun! We sang ”Happy Birthday.” We should Skype with a meteorologist again some day!

    Sincerely,
    Natalie S.

    Hey Fourth Grade!

    All of the Skype videos were so cool! I wish that maybe some time before I graduate Dennett this year, that I will be able to Skype somebody! That would be so cool! Great Job!

    Dear Mr. Avery and class,

    I loved the Skype call today. We are putting a poll on our blog. Maybe 1 or 2 sudents in your class will leave us a comment when it is our week. What was your favourite part about the Skype call? My favourite part was getting to know more about Plympton.
    Your new blogging buddy,
