During the month of April, the third grade students in Ms. Borst's class were excited to receive their first pen pal letters from a third grade class at Summit Lane Elementary School! The students were paired based on their interests and similar answers from a questionnaire that was given to them. Many of the children learned what their pen pal's favorite movies, foods, books and subjects were and so much more! Their pen pals asked them some questions that they were interested in knowing more about. Ms. Borst's class used the writing process to help them write their final letters. In their letters, they were encouraged to answer the questions asked to them, share interesting facts about themselves and ask their pen pals a few questions they would like to find out. The students had fun decorating and addressing their letters using an envelope. The classes are looking forward to exchanging pen pal letters in the upcoming weeks and hope to complete a culminating activity together where the children can meet at the end of the year. This experience will help our students grow as writers and we hope they can make a friend along the way!
