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.
