Ms. Green's Second Grade Class Writes to Pen-Pal
Ms. Green’s second grade class just finished reading “Judy Moody and the Declaration of Independence”. In their read aloud, they learned about pen pals. Students have been working on writing descriptive narratives and the format of a formal letter. With these strategies in mind, they decided they would like to apply their skills by writing to a classroom pen pal of their own. Ms. Green’s second grade class received their first letter from their homeroom pen pal, Anna from Germany, last week. Anna was a classmate of Ms. Greens who resides in Munster Germany. She is currently finishing up her schooling to enter the medical field and is overjoyed to be corresponding with the class. Ms. Green’s students have been working on writing their first letter back to their pen pal and have been utilizing cooperative and collaborative strategies. They have been working hard, engaging in Kagan strategies, to become a strong team. They are eager to share their work with you!
