Pen Pals!

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I am looking to start a pen pal program with my pre-k students. It's the first time I'm trying anything like this but I think my kids would really benefit from it. I work in a low income, rural area where a lot of the kids don't know much beyond their neighborhood. I think it would be great for them to communicate with other kids from different backgrounds and states. Every year, I really try to stress to my students how each of us are connected and things that we do affect not just us, but also possibly people we have never meant. Would anybody be interested in being classroom pen pals? I'm in Florida and I have 18 students. Respond here or email me at haylo26@mail.com. I can't wait to get started!!!!!

I was thinking this would be fun but then I read that you're in Florida too. Where at in Florida are you located? I'm in Levy Co. I'm a first year teacher so I'm just trying to get ideas on things to do with my class.

Let me know if you are willing to do the pen-pal thing with my class even if we are in the same area.

I still think they would have fun, the kids will enjoy it no matter where you are. I'm in gadsden county. Do you know yet how many students you'll have? I have 18 and teach in a public school. Are you in a public school or private prek program? Let's make this happen!

That sounds great email me at the address I listed earlier and I'll send you my primary personal email address- I was afraid to put it on here because of spammers! We can work out details then.

Hi! I am still interested in having pen pals for my class. We will begin classes on Monday the 23, please let me know if you are still looking for a pen pal. It would be nice to eventually skype with each other in class.

I teach pre-k in Texas and looking for penpals for my students. I would prefer a class outside of the U.S. but in a different state will be just as good. I would like a teacher who is willing to share activities for our students to complete and share with each other once a month, "write" letters, and learn about where we live. If you are interested please email me at tonya.cordero@gmail.com
