Looking For Classroom Pen Pals!

Hi,

I'm hoping to set up a pen pal exchange for my whole class for NEXT school year. I teach 2nd grade so I am looking for a class of the same age. I think this would be a really motivating and fun idea to get my students excited about writing! We are based in Florida.

Thanks!
Mrs. Cohen

Mrs. Cohen- I am interested! I teach 2nd grade from the Midwest. We're you thinking Of kids blog or something over the computers? I'd like to hear your ideas.

Pen Pal Exchange

Mrs. Cohen,

I would love to do a pen pal exchange with your class. I teach 2nd grade in Nebraska on a Native American Reservation and would like the opportunity to have my students learn about communities outside of our reservation, which many do not get the chance to experience.

If you are interested, please let me know!

I teach in a small, rural, Title I school in East Texas. I would be interested in being penpals, too. We average 18-21 students per class, mostly low-income, about 10-15% Hispanic/ESL children that are bilingual.

I would love to join this exchange. It sounds like we have a variety of backgrounds. I am moving up to second grade and am looking forward to connecting with other classes. I will have about 20-24 students, live in Castle Rock, CO (suburb of Denver), and will start the 2015-2016 school year in August. Is there a way to make this a blog so we can all participate OR break up and send postcards? Let me know what you think?!

Mrs. Cohen,

I'd love to pen pal with you all. I am moving to 2nd grade from 4th grade and think this would be great for kids. Would you want to do it digitally? We are in Colorado.

Two classes in Texas

Greetings All -

We are two second grade classes in Bryan, Texas looking for pen pals. We are located about 90 miles northwest of Houston in the twin city of College Station/Texas A&M University. We will probably be somewhere in the size of 20-22 kids in each class. We are looking to be pen pals with two other classes hopefully in the same school somewhere in the United States. We imagine this to be at least a monthly letter-writing experience and eventually growing into a chance to Skype with each other, as well as continue to write letters. Please contact me PM if you are interested in doing this.

Still need a Pen Pal?

Greetings -

Are you still looking for a pen pal class? We are a second grade class of about 24 students at a Title 1 school in Bryan, TX (right next to College Station - home of the Texas Aggies). Are you interested in doing a pen pal program with about a monthly mailing of letters and then eventually adding some Skype to it?

Let me know,
Jean Wolff

I would love to be pen pals with another 2nd grade class! I have done this twice, and the kiddos loved it! We start school on August 17. We are in Smyrna, Delaware. I will have approximately 20-23 students. If you still need pen pals, please keep me in mind.
Thanks for your consideration.
