A.W. Becker second grade class sets goal to write to students in all 50 states

Students hold their letters, smiling
Second grade students in Mrs. Stott’s class hold up letters that will be sent to students across the country.

Tara Stott, second grade teacher at A.W. Becker, has found a fun way for her students to practice their writing skills and learn how to write a friendly letter. Her class is participating in “The Great Mail Race,” a program designed to connect students around the country.

Stott’s students have already written their first letter to fellow second-graders across the US. They will be writing to a second grade class in each of the 50 states and develop an understanding, that although we are far apart in distance, as students we share many commonalities.
