    This is my first year in second grade after 17 years in first. I would like to have penpals for my class. I teach in a very rural area in North Alabama. I thought it would be good for my students to correspond with students from a large city. I will have 15-18 students this year. Let me know if you are interested. Thanks! :anyone:

    I teach in a suburb of Phoenix AZ. I would love to have a penpal with another 2nd grade class. I have 14 students though.

    Penpals!

    I moved to Las Vegas one year ago. I taught in Illinois for ten years before moving west. My husband is also a teacher. All my experience is in fourth grade. Last year I taught fifth grade and chose to move down to second grade for a try. So, this will also be my first year in the second grade. Las Vegas is a very large city. I will have about 20 students in my classroom. I would love to be classroom penpals.:)

    I teach 2nd in central Phoenix, AZ. My student population is probably very different than yours. I have 20 students right now. I think pen pals would be something fun for them to get into. Personal message me if you are interested.

    2nd grade Penpals

    Hello... I'd love to have penpals... I am moving from 1st to 2nd after many years, but when I taught 3rd grade we always had pen pals... it was SO fun. I will have 20 students. We are just north of San Diego, right across the street from the beach. Please let me know if you're interested.

    Right across from the beach??? I am so jealous! I will only have 17 as of now. But if something changes, I'll let you know. We have a farm in front of our school. :rolleyes: Well, I have to say it is a really nice farm. ~Not quite the beach though. :whistle:

    If anyone is still in need of a class of penpals for 2nd grade, please reply to this message. I will be starting school Aug. 27 and have been told each 2nd grade class will have about 23 students, give or take 1. We can't have more than 25 so if you're interested, I'd love to get something set in stone!

    I'm teaching in the Tampa area of Florida but originally grew up in upstate NY. I have about 22 students. If you want to penpal, email me or just post again. Our kids would have a lot to compare/contrast! I don't miss the ice and snow! :)

    I have about 25 students and I teach in Portsmouth VA -- a very urban school. It would be neat to see urban vs. rural.
