Postcard Exchange!!!! Great Idea for a Classroom Project!!!!

Allison Scovone is hosting a Classroom Postcard Exchange!!!  A great idea that I know my students will love!  Allison still has some states available so click on the link below and join the fun!  Here is the information you need:

2013-2014 Postcard Exchange

A postcard exchange is where 51 teachers (one from each of the states plus Washington D.C.) agrees to have their students write and mail  postcards to the other participants.
To participate you will need 50 postcards and postage. On the postcard, you can tell the other classes about your state and school. This is a great way to connect with classes around the country and give your students the opportunity to see how life is different in various regions of the United States.
The exchange will be open on a first come, first serve basis. If interested (and your state is still available), please sign up below. The deadline for signing up is Thanksgiving (November 28th).
Your address will not be visible to other participants through Sign Up Genius. Therefore, as people start registering, I will create a Google Doc with addresses and share it with you.
All participants should mail out their postcards by February 28th, 2014. Postcards can include information about life in your city/state or what your school is like.

I'm looking forward to seeing all these postcards on my classroom map!  Thank you Allison for hosting this!
