The 4th graders will be working on international Penpals with another group of students from Correggio, Italy. This is our first international experience and are so excited to get started. Currently, we are working on writing the first letters to be sent out that will describe ourselves and what we like to do.


About a week ago we received a package from our good friends in Itay. The package included some wodnerful decorations to help in the celebration of 150 years of their nation. We found some time in our class to decorate and here is the final Italian corner in our room. The students did all the decorating. They did a wonderful job!

We also received another package the following day that included letters from our great friends in Italy.
