The fun is in teaching students about Maui

October 16, 2013 - Leah Sherman

The following letter made its way to my desk last week:

“Dear Editor,

I am a third grader at Woodland Elementary School.

We are learning about the U.S.A. this year. We would like your readers to write to us. We hope they will send us a postcard.

Could you please print our letter in your editorial column? My teacher typed it up.

Thank you, Ryan.”

The attached letter from Ryan's teacher reads:

“Dear Readers,

We are a class of third grade students living and learning in Gages Lake, Illinois. We are studying about the different areas of our country. We'd like you to be part of our learning by sending us a postcard from your state. Please tell us about yourself, your profession, why you live where you live, what wildlife lives in your area, what your weather is like, what types of outdoor activities are popular, tell us about special landmarks, etc.

We will be unable to answer everyone who helps us with our project however we want to take this opportunity to give you a big THANK YOU for helping us with our learning! We LOVE our United States!”

Ryan's hand-written letter brightened my day. (And isn't it nice to see students learning old-school style and not just on the Internet?) I'm hopeful that he'll receive some cards from Maui.

Send postcards to:

Ms. Kristina Rudolph's Class

Woodland Elementary West School

17371 W. Gages Lake Road

Gages Lake, IL 60030
