Lyme School first grade has been pen pals with another first grade class at Plymouth Elementary School. We have sent multiple letters back and forth with our pen pals. We have learned a lot about them through asking questions and reading their responses. Students are able to come up with questions about things that they are truly wondering about their pal.
Our class has really enjoyed this opportunity to be pen pals and learn about other first graders in our state. We look forward to receiving responses and writing our letters to them.
It is a great authentic writing experience for us to engage in. We are continuing with our pen pals for the next few months.
