    Hi All,

    I teach 2nd in NJ. I will have between 20-21 students. School starts September 8th. Would anyone be interested in being penpals with our class? We are 30 minutes from New York City. I would love to find a class who's climate is different from ours or a rural community. I want the kids to learn about somewhere completely different from NJ. Thanks!!

    Hey!

    I'm a 1st year teacher from IL, in a very rural farm town...one of our first Social Studies units is on the difference between cities and farms, I was looking to do penpals as well. I think this would be a great intro unit!

    Let me know if you would like to do this! I am going to have around 23 students!

    Thanks so much!

    Hey tsnowden! I have 23 students this year and we live in a major city. We will also be having that unit as one of our first SS units. Let me know if you're still interested!

    If Tara already has a pen pal partner, feel free to PM me- I'm also in Northern NJ suburbs, near NYC. Would LOVE to have pen pals with another grade 2 class out there!:angel:
