Just popping in to share a fun idea I'm trying this year...
a country-wide Postcard Exchange!
Over the summer I signed up to represent Washington state in a blogger postcard exchange.
I created this fun bulletin board to track the states that we receive postcards from:
I got this awesome map from Wal-mart for $5 in August.
Here is the postcard our class is sending.
I made them on Vistaprint:
Here are some of the postcards we've received:
It's been so fun to read the news from classrooms around the country. Plus, we sort the postcards by region, so it serves as a great Geography lesson!
I ordered a ton of extra postcards, so if you'd like me to mail one to your classroom (and you're not part of the exchange), e-mail me your school address at firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking for more ideas to TRY in your classroom?
