We have been writing to our pen pals. Our pen pals are Second Graders in another school. Our teachers know each other and paired us up. We have pen pals to practice writing letters and to make new friends. We tell them about our life and they tell us about their life. We also put a picture of us so they can see what we look like. We might have something in common. We took about two days to write our letters, including decorating them. We also ask questions like do you have any siblings? That is how we do pen pals.
Doing this, we can make a friend without meeting them. In fact, one of our classmates actually met her pen pal in person!
