A New York Teacher Anxious for a Postcard Exchange!

Hello there!!
I am a teacher in New York state and I am eager to participate in a Postcard Exchange this year! For some reason, it seems as though NY is always one of the first states filled. Sadly, I'm having a hard time with finding one I can join in. If there is a Postcard Exchange open to NY, please let me know. This would be great for my students this year!
Thanks!

Postcard exchange

Hi,
I would love to start a postcard exchange. I teach in Kenosha, WI and have 19 students I have just "loooped" up with to 4th grade. I am not aware of any program entitled "Postcard Exchange" Would it be possible to exchange our school addresses and student lists (first names only, of course) and do this activity this year?
Thanks!

I'm a 4th grade teacher in MA right outside of Boston. I find MA is also one of the first sates that always gets filled.

We just need someone to organize it! I think if you did a search on PT you could find an old thread that explains how to organize it. I have 23 students.

Tips on Hoe to Run it...
Old 08-29-2010, 03:18 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #7

I copied this from another post somewhere on this site. Gives lots of info on how to get started.


Here are the basics. You send out 99 postcards to the rest of the people on the exchange. This takes place between September - December 12. You send either a few at a time or like me do them all at once. You write up a paragraph on your state, school, town, whatever you think is interesting about where you live and put it on the postcard. You can do it, or if your kids are old enough I would have them do it.

Once I have all the states in place, I'll be sending out all the addresses in a word document set up as labels. You can print them on labels or just print them on regular paper and glue them on the postcard.

It's a lot of fun and the kids really enjoy getting the postcards. Below are some tips for you. Hope that answers your questions.

Postcard Exchange Project Ideas/Suggestions


How can I save money?
a. Ask parents to supply a couple of cards each, as well
as put stamps on them. I did this last year...since I only had 16 students I had them bring in 5 postcards each. Everyone did so it worked out perfectly.
b. Have your students make the postcards out of cardstock paper and cut out pictures from your state.
c. Write to your local and state historic sites and ask them for donations of postcards. I did this the year before last when I lived in Arizona and the state department donated 100 cards to me. It took a bit of e-mailing to find the place that would but it worked out in the end.

How do I get the writing started?
a. As a class create a chart of popular sites, symbols and history of your state. Together write a paragraph that includes this information. You can go through the entire writing process by doing this. Then you can buy large labels to print your class paragraph. This will help fit more information. (suggested size 2.75 x 2.75 diskette labels are good to use)
b. Have your students choose states that they are interested in and write a paragraph about their state to each of them.

What should I include in the writing?
a. grade level
b. class and school size
c. number of boys and girls
d. school logo or mascot
e. fun facts about your state (things we cannot find in the encyclopedia or resource books)
f. state websites or school websites

What are some map and bulletin board ideas?
a. Use an overhead projector to create a large map that
includes Alaska and Hawaii. (donít forget our other counties and US Virgin Islands) Laminate the map so you can use it year after year. Place stars on the states as you receive their postcard.
b. Use a 3-D plastic map in the hallway to display them.
c. Use string to connect the postcard hanging on the wall to the appropriate state.
d. Allow students who wrote to that state be the one to read the information to the class. (Or if you wrote a class paragraph, just assign states for them to look for and then they can read them)
e. Place the cards in sticky back plastic and hang them so they can read both sides.
f. Title: ďPostcard ProjectĒ above a US map. Even when you receive more than one a day, choose only one to share each day. This helps to lengthen the project as well as not confuse the students with a lot of new information.
g. A good title: Postcard Pals

What are some ongoing and cross the curriculum ideas?a. As each one comes in compare that state to your state in size, location, climate, time zone, etc.. You can also compare the school information and size that was given.
b. After enough for a class set has come in allow students
to choose one that intrigues them and complete a state report.
c. Have each child choose a state (or more if needed) to
Become their state(s). When the postcard comes in they read it to the class. Anytime the state is mention during the year allow that student to read the information or show to everyone where it is on the map. Also give them an extra 100 in any subject when their postcard comes in.
d. Make a list of all postcard exchange representatives by giving each a number. Hang the numbers on the wall or chart with post its or other sticky stuff. Have each student pick their favorite numbers ahead of time and when they come in tick them off. The first student to get all of their postcards in gets a prize.
e. As each postcard comes in locate the state website and
allow students to read more about that state.

What do I do with all these postcards?
a. Give them out to the students at the end of the school
year.
b. Keep them for future classes to see and read.
c. For those of you who have several years worth, allow the students to go through them and graph the results.
d. Purchase a photograph book that allows you to see through the plastic on both sides. (the ones with rings work best) Put the postcards in so that future classes can read both sides. Label the year and date that the card was received. For larger cards use a sheet protector and cut it down to size.

Are there any other tips?
a. A great website to visit: http://www.kimskorner4teachertalk.co...angeideas.html
b. Send out all postcards at one time so you donít forget.
c. Scenic pictures work best for students to visualize each state.
d. Donít be late sending out your cards, kids really get disappointed when their states donít come in as quickly as others.
e. Be a 100% partner in the exchange! We are all depending on you to follow through! Donít forget you are representing your state.
f. Email each member as you receive their card and tell them you got it.
g. Email the group after you have sent out all of your cards. This will help us keep an eye out for them.

This is awesome guys!! I am so glad we can get this started! The directions on how to do a postcard exchange is correct, the only difference is we don't have to get 100 postcards. That is only if we choose to do a 100th day exchange. We can just do a typical postcard exchange in which we send one postcard to each classroom from each state. So we would only need to buy or make 49 postcards (for the 49 other classrooms). This may be difficult to do but I am willing to organize this if we can get other states involved. So far it looks like we have 5 states! How can we recruit other states?? Are you guys willing to each post a thread inviting other classrooms?? We can definitely get this done in no time.

If we reach out to our contacts we may be able to get more states. Some of my high school classmates teach in other states so I'm going to post on facebook that we're looking for teachers (usually 4th grade it looks like) that would like to participate. I'll keep you all posted!

Since I started the thread, I will gladly get all the information out to all the participants!! If everyone emails me with the following information, I will keep a running record of the classrooms participating and I will be in charge of sending out the directions on how to send the postcards out. I am hoping we can recruit more classrooms and have this ready to go by the beginning of October. This way we can all get the postcards and continue our teaching through November. Our goal can be to have all the postcards sent out by Thanksgiving. That's two months (from October 1st-November 28th).
Everyone, please send me the following information to my email:

Teacher's name
School's name
Classroom grade
School's address
Teacher's/classroom email address

I will log this information and forward the info to every classroom teacher participating. Send your info to both of my email addresses so that I can make sure I receive it. Sometimes my school email is not so dependable.

My school email address is: srosenthal (AT) buffaloschools (DOT) org
or you can send me a personal message as some participants have done already! Thanks.

Let's work together to bring in more states!! I'm working hard as well!

that would be great if you could recruit some friends in other states!! That would help to make this exchange very successful. Let us know how that goes, and I will do the same. Thanks.

Bananas4books,
sorry but Florida is on the list of states already taken. Unfortunately we only need one classroom from each state to participate. Stay posted, if anything changes, feel free to jump right in.
Thanks for inquiring!
