long distance connection.



how exciting for the class (and for me)

to receive a beautiful poster and message

from our penpal friends

led by a blogging friend/teacher i admire, jennie fitzkee

all the way from the aqua room in massachusetts

connections can be made in so many wonderful ways.

“with a little paper and ink –

and some help from the postal service –

friendship can span many years and many miles.”

  1. You/we may never know the consequences of this outreach. But it can only help to bring harmony to a world in much need of it. The future does depend on our children. And the children depend on their teachers. Well done.

  2. Good lord I didn’t see the period after “child” because I’m on my phone and, for a few baffled moments, my mind went in an unpleasant direction. Zooming in righted everything. …What a neat experience for the kids. So glad to hear pen pals still exist.

  3. I also am the proud owner of one of those letters from The Aqua Room. This is such a wonderful thing to teach kids. Way to go Jennie, Ritu, and Beth!
