A Request

One of the second grade standards I teach is how to write a friendly letter complete with the date, salutation, body, closing, and signature. Several years ago, my aunt who is also a second grade teacher, gave me the idea of asking my friends to write a friendly letter to my students. This will enable the kids to better understand the letter writing and sending process. It also gives them someone to write to. The most important thing though is that it is fun!

I have asked several people already to start writing to my class. I would like to open this request up to anyone else who reads this blog. The letter to my class does not have to be long or exceptionally detailed. What would be great to include in the letter would be a short description of who you are, where you live and how you know me. (even if it is just through the internet!) It would be extra special if you would include what your profession is and how school has helped you to succeed at what you do. (I have to push this you know.) :-) Anything else that you want to unclude would be great. (pictures, etc) I do teach second grade so please keep that in mind when writing.

If you are interested in this, please leave me a comment and I will e-mail you with my school's address. I promise you that we will write a nice letter back to you!

Thanks so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi, I read your blog just going through random posts. I love kids and have 2 of my own little ones, so I'd love to help your class out. I'm 23, from Ohio, and currently finishing up nursing with plans to go to Medical school, so I'll help out the little rascals if you want. My e-mail is
