A great way to bring students together
to share mutually beneficial, instructional activities
Divide your class of students in to 5 small groups labeled: A-E
Each group will write a minimum of 1 letter per month to the partner class group using email or snail-mail. Teachers can decide if one letter is written by the group or if each student contributes a letter to the group package. (This prevents someone from being disappointed if a student moves in/out of a classroom)
Each participating class will participate in at least 3 video conferences:
-By Nov. 1, choose a fall date/time (maybe a holiday theme)
-By Feb. 1, teachers will agree on date/time for Read Across America week (Feb. 28-Mar. 4- ).
-By Apr. 1, choose a finale date/time.
-Additional connections are optional.
Registration Deadline is Oct. 1.
