Today I sat down with two girls (Joy and Dupe) and explained the whole thing to them and they were super excited. They sat and wrote out all about what they like to do, and who their siblings are and asked questions about Canada. I'm going to be sending the letters on Monday!
(Roni, Dupe (Dook-bay) is on the left, and Joy is on the right. They both really really wanted to write to you, so I hope you're ready for two pen pals!!)
I have also been e-mailing my Dad (who is an elementary school teacher-librarian) and he said that the grade 1 class at his school would love to write letters back and forth with some the kids here. Of course I said YES!
So Ms. McCan's grade 1 class? Here are the letters I helped some of the kids write. Write some of your own and e-mail them to me, and I can show them to the kids, and maybe we can start something!
The kids writing are Taiwo & Kehinde (twin girls), Samuel & Elizabeth (twins), Isaiah & Esther (twins) and Sunday.
I think its so cool that these kids can write back and forth to each other. I feel blessed to be a part of this international community!
