I’m super excited to have found my class pen pals across the country. Our pen pal class is in Virginia. From the communication I have had with the teacher, it sounds like we have similar socio-economic and cultural backgrounds. A perfect fit!
This week the class wrote letters introducing themselves to their pen pals. They used their descriptive writing skills to describe what they look like. Their hope is that their pen pal will be able to use their descriptions to draw a picture that resembles them.
They also told their pen pals what they like to do, and they asked them what they like to do. They are looking forward to finding out how life for a fifth grader across the country is similar and different from their own lives!
