Hi. Some of you don't know that I am a 6th grade teacher. I teach in a very high poverty area right near Chicago. My students are 99% hispanic. I only have 4 kids this year that are NOT on free or reduced lunch. Anyway, what I thought would be great is if my class could get some post cards. I don't care if they are art postcards or the ones you buy from the drugstore. Some of my kids get next to nothing. They would be thrilled. You don't have to put your full address down, just the city, state, and country (if not US). If you do put down your full address. I will have one of my kids make up their own postcard, and I will send one back to you. If I get enough from all of you, I will let them each have one. I will also use it a geography lesson. I will use a black sharpie and black out your address before giving any of them to my students. I am very sensitive to privacy issues. We will plot where each postcards come from on a map that I think I will have them do themselves! Ooh, I like that!
Thanks for making my kids feel special!
Plz send the postcards to:
