1st Graders in our school district have been pen pals with 1st Graders in Albany, MN since last Fall. Student Teacher, Mrs. Ude, started the project with letters sent back and forth. Eventually the students sent letters and class e-mails. On March 16th, first graders from both towns got to "meet each other" through a live chat set up by our school district IT Director- Brock Peters. Students will continue communicating until the end of the year. We hope to have another chance or two to coordinate more live chats with our Albany, MN friends. In the picture Iridessa is talking with her pen pal Greidys.
