Yesterday we kicked off our pen pal writing! The kids were super excited to be writing to and for someone. "A real person" as a wise-student declared.
I've been yearning for an authentic, real-world writing experience for my students. I hope this partnership creates just that.
Mrs. Burrow and I have not created many rules around this.... we are both just learning as we go.
The letters are currently headed to Texas!
Stay tuned for progress updates on this real-world writing experiment!
