Still Want a Penpal?

Never got a penpal in another country to write back? Here’s another chance. I got an email this week from a teacher in Ukraine who is looking for American students to match with her class.  Many  you have already written a letter that you could adapt to send here.  So, if you still want a penpal, keep reading. These students are eagerly awaiting responses!

Here’s the message that I received from the teacher:

Dear colleague: My name is Anna. I teach 10-12 year olds. My fourth graders were extremely excited and amazed about pen pals from the USA. Thank you for the opportunity to email you. I am sending you a recent photo of my students. They are very talented and creative. Thank you so much for reaching out. I hope your students will enjoy hearing back from their pen pals. Hope to hear from you soon.  Yours sincerely, Anna Ukhan, First City Gymnasia, Cherkasy, Ukraine

This is our friendly class.

    Hi. I will be starting 5th grade this year at Innovation Academy Charter School. I would like to be a pen pal but I don’t have a google docs account yet. Can I still be a pen pal? Thank you.

    • Hi William. Sure! Have one of your parents email me (skrakauer@innovationcharter.org) and we can make the arrangements. Also, you’ll need to let me know which person you’d like to write to (and maybe a back up choice in case another IACS student already asked for your first choice). Thank you for following my blog. Looking forward to meeting you in the fall!
