A Win-Win!

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!

Keep learning,


  1. Yay! I love authentic writing, and kids ALWAYS step up their game for it!

    I look forward to hearing more! My own blog is
