    In two weeks I am beginning a project with my students on the 50 states as well as a unit on letter writing. I was wondering if some of you would help out by mailing letters to my school, telling us a little about your state. I am going to put the letters on a bulletin board along with a U.S. map, connecting the letters to their state with string and pins. It might be hard to visualize, but I'll try to post a picture from a couple of years ago when I did the same unit. Anyway, the students will then color that specific state on the map and we'll do a mini-lesson with it. If anyone is willing to help out, please post and I will e-mail you our school address. Thanks so much in advance!

    PS I will be willing to do the same for anyone who is interested!

    I have actually decided to postpone the project until after Christmas break. Things have been a little crazy around here with IEP and SAT meetings and the like, so I haven't gotten my parent letter sent home yet. I would be glad to give anyone a copy of it if you'd like. I can post it or PM it to you...let me know! If you've already sent a letter...THANKS! I'll save it for the second week we come back. If not and you want to get it over with, that would be great too! Thanks for your help, in advance!
