Our Pen Pal Project

Perhaps your child has told you already. Maybe you remember the letter I sent home the first week of class. We have pen pals! Pen pals are special friends we have in a far away school that we only interact with through writing. I have used a project like this for many years and it always helps motivate the kids to write with more care and enthusiasm. 

This year, our Grade 2 classes are collaborating with a class of Year 4 students at the International School Moshi in Arusha, Tanzania (East Africa). Can you believe it? Friends in far away Tanzania! I know our students will learn a lot of about this country and their new friends this year. My goal to have our students not only just share letters with our friends, but also digital projects as well that share information about our home and school. Stay tuned for more news about projects with our pen pals.
