Pen Pals next year

I am looking for pen pals for next year. My school is outside of Omaha, NE, so we would love to write to someone in a different climate. I will have 21 or so students. We would be very happy to write 3 or 4 times a year; nothing elaborate, but just to practice writing skills. Let me know if you are interested. Thanks!

Our school is right outside of Pensacola, FL and I will be teaching 3 rotations of 5th Grade Reading/ Language Arts next year. I am looking for pen pals for each of my groups. There will be 18-21 students in each group. If any of your colleagues are also looking for pen pals, please let them know.

Hello,
I will check with my teammates tomorrow. We have four sections, so I should be able to get another class or two. Thanks!

Shellea, I have confirmation from one other teacher for sure. I need to check with my teammate who is on maternity leave. I should have an answer early next week. I will keep in touch!

I live just south of Omaha and will have 27 students (as of now). This is a class that grows by the week, so if their past history lays down any foundation for the number of students they will have at the beginning of school, we might be close to 30! I would love to communicate at least once a quarter.

I'm moving to 5th grade from 2nd this year. I've had the same pen pals for 2 years and am now forced to change! ;( If you still need a pen pal, I'd like to volunteer. Any other takers if this one is already claimed. I am in South Georgia.

Shellea, I have three classrooms for you! Now, I need one more class to write to a fifth grade class - we have four sections. We are outside of Omaha and would like someone in a different climate. Thanks!

Would love to set this up for next year, just one less thing to worry about. We are in South Texas, in a little rural/farm/cotton community called Sinton, TX. I will have 2 rotations of 21 students in each.
You can contact me through email sdillon78*hotmail

Looking forward to it

Stacy

Hi there,

If you haven't found anybody, I would love to be pen pals. We're in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. I'm not sure how many kids I have yet, but usually it's between 20 and 25.

sdillon78:

I teach 5th grade at a high needs urban school in Wilmington, Delaware. I think the contrast of our 2 environments would be quite interesting. I'll email you to see if you’re still in need of pen pals. So far we will have 21 students. Our school year starts Aug 29th.
