I had an idea last night. I want to write it down and put it out there so I do not forget. Ideas come left and right, but this concept really excites me. The initial idea seemed simple enough, but now I am unsure if it will work....
Sentence #1: In the morning I like to...... #2: In the afternoon I like to..... #3: At night I like to..... #4 My favorite food is....., etc. You get the idea.
They can end their letters with questions they would like to know about their new pen pal. They can decorate the letter, maybe even give American kids a Chinese name! The possibilities are endless. Then, they can exchange photos. Maybe these chinese kids can send a picture and say: this is how I spend my Chinese New Year. American kids: this is how I spend my Christmas. This can either be done by postage or e-mail. E-mail would be less expensive, but less personal. At the end of the year, I would love it if both schools could exchange a video of the whole class! I really think the students from BOTH countries would enjoy it and it would certainly make writing more fun.
