BBB Joanne's linky party!
I am just as excited about what I'm sharing with you today as my kids!!! My teammate and BBBIRL (Best Bloggy Buddy In Real Life) Gary's (AKA Scrappy Guy) and my class are pen pals with Holly's classes (from Fourth Grade Flipper)!!! We wrote our first letters this week! Gary added the awesome Atlanta book and the fact cards about our city, Lawrenceville.
When I originally told my kids the news, there was not one student who didn't gasp, cheer, or clap! They were soooooo excited. We talked about how our pen pal would become our friend this year, and we needed to make sure we told them all the important, fun things about ourselves that would make someone WANT to be our friend! I think they really did a good job! There were a few kids I had to discourage from putting their phone number and home address. LOL
If you are wanting pen pals, blogging is the BEST way to get to know people from all over the country (and world!). When Holly first blogged about pen pals, there were some others looking for pen pals, too! They left their info in the comments on Holly's Pen Pal Post. If you are interested, go check it out, and add your info there if you want! I promise your kids will have a BLAST with it!
Now, a little motivator for YOU- a giveaway! Check out Life In Middle School's 2 Year Blogging Anniversary for a chance to win some awesome prizes!
Hope you all have a FABULOUS weekend! :o)
