Pen Pals End Year with Digital Dialogue

ELE Penpal Conference

While they won’t be classmates until they reach middle school in a few years, students from two second grade classes in the district connected throughout the year. Children in Christine Marshall’s class at East Lake Elementary School were pen pals with students in Jennifer Lidonnici’s class at Fairfield Elementary School.

The children exchanged letters during the school year to learn more about each other. After communicating the old-fashioned way, students from the two classes ended the year by participating in a videoconference.
