Recently, we participated in a postcard exchange. We sent and received postcards from all over the U.S. and even got one from Australia! We wrote our postcard as a group during circle time one morning and pasted it on the back of a picture of our class.
Our note to others:
We are in Pre-K. We live in Georgia. We have 20 kids in our class. We have lots of fun and learn many new things in school. Hope you have a great year!

Each week, we sent several cards out. This was such a great experience for all of us. In this instant age of email, kids don't "get" the importance of the postal system. We tracked on our map where each card came from and the distance it traveled: a short trip, a long trip or a REALLY long trip! We couldn't resist having my assistant send a postcard from Plymouth Rock when she when home to Boston for Thanksgiving!

I'd really like to thank Deborah Stewart at Teach Preschool for co-ordinating this. It was such a rewarding experience. I hope we'll be able to get a group together to do it again next year!
