Pet Pal Partner Class

I just read about this here: http://www.teachingmaddeness.com/
I would LOVE to do this with a 3rd or 4th grade class in a different region than my class. We are in Oklahoma. Here is the explanation from her blog:
It is a mix between pen pals and a class mascot. Two classes will pair up for the year. Each class needs a class mascot (stuffed animal). The classes will trade class mascots for a couple of months, allowing students from the other class to take the mascot home and document his travels. When everyone in the partner class has taken the visiting mascot home and "helped" it write about its adventures, it is sent back home so that each student in its class can take him home for a night and READ about its adventures!

I love this project because it is a mix between reading, writing, AND social studies!

Anyone interested?

I would love to! I am in Southern California, about 20 minutes from Disneyland. I don't know how many kids you have though - I will probably have 32 (third graders). Let me know if that will work for you.

I would LOVE to do this. Any second grade teachers out there want to do this? I live in AZ.

I teach 3rd grade but am in AZ too. My son did this last year and loved it. I love the idea of doing two different regions and its so different from the normal pen pal thing!
