Our U.S. Penpals

February 8, 2014 by teacher102 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Grade 2 was so excited to receive a manilla envelope in the mail this week.  It was waiting for us when we got to school last Monday.  I have a sister in Massachusetts who also teaches grade 2.  Since I loop, every 2 years we pair up our students for pen pals.  This gives our students an authentic purpose for writing – to get to know kids their own age who live in a different country.  We will be exploring sports, games and mutual interests.  We will plan to skype in the near future so the students can meet each other.

Have you ever had a pen pal?

    I liked Pen Pals last year too :) But I didn’t really like how I had 2 Pen Pals, but they were both very interesting. So that’s what kept me going. I’m just a bit sad how I don’t remember what their names are and what they like and look like :( But I still remember writing to them so I think that still counts :) Overall, Have fun with your Pen Pals :) -Kayliya

      Hello K,
      Thank you for your very thoughtful comment on our pen pal project. I wish we could have continued the project for you. I think it was probably too short of a time for you to remember your pen pals. Thank you though for taking two pen pals! I am sure you have been very helpful to your little sister. She is doing a great job in grade 2.
