A very special part of being in our 1st grade classroom is having a penpal! Ms. Walsh, one of my best teacher friends and I are excited to begin exchanging penpal letters again this year. This week, students worked hard to complete their introduction letters to their new 1st grade penpal in Chelsea, MA. Students LOVED this writing project. 1st graders were so engaged in their letters. With a huge smile on one of my 1st grade friends face, he exclaimed, "I'm so into this".
