Pen Pals
We have four 5th grade classes and would like pen pals. Is anyone interested? We are in Farmington, NM.

I like the idea of pen pals, but have never actually done it. I have one class in New England (nearing 30 students). How do you see it working?

Pen Pals
With our past pen pals we wrote first about us, our school, and the area we live in and then you guys would write back to us. We can set up a writing prompt or just let them write to each other. It is just to get them writing letters and not all these text message shortcuts. LOL My email is, so you can email me your address and student names. I have 20 students and can just give some of my students 2 pen pals. Do you have any other coworkers that would be willing to write to the other classes? Let me know if you are interested.

Sounds fabulous! I'm in OKC and have 22 students. I would love to have pen pals for my students.

Would love to join in the penpal group
I teach a combo 5/6th grade ELD class in Phoenix, Arizona. There are 18 students in my class. I'd love to have them write letters to one of your classes. I also have never matched my students with penpals, so please give me some guidance on how to proceed.

Please email me your information. We are still in need of 2 more classes.

I'll find out if anyone else is interested today - I might have another class (or two).... We haven't started yet though.

I wish we didn't start until after Labor Day. Ok. I will wait until then. Have a great rest for the rest of your time off. Have a great start of the year!
