    We need Deleware teacher for postcard exchange!
    Erin


    Hi...My name is Erin and I'm a third grade teacher in
    Pennsylvania. I am trying to find one elementary teacher
    from each state willing to participate in a project titled:
    Postcard Exchange with 50 States. I was wondering if you
    would be willing to partner with me and 48 other teachers
    from around the country? What would you have to do? You
    and your classroom would have to write a postcard to each
    state. (49 total-Handwritten or typed) I will have all
    addresses available that can be printed out easily on a
    label page. *If you decide to participate I will email
    that information to you. If you aren't interested, but know
    of a teacher in your state who might be, would you PLEASE
    forward this email to him/her? I'd really appreciate your
    help in this matter.

    Thank you and please feel free to email me with any
    questions!!

    Sincerely,
    Erin

    Here is some information I had posted on other websites so
    you can read:

    Calling elementary teachers from 49 states!! I need your
    help!! I would like my 3rd grade class to participate in a
    Postcard Exchange Project this 2009-2010 school year, but I
    need your help to do so. I need 49 teachers from across
    the country who would be willing to write 49 postcards and
    send them out to each state. At the end of the project,
    you should receive 49 different postcards with information
    about each state. (Information/examples will be sent out
    to you as soon as I get participation from all states.)
    What can you do in the mean time? You will need to see if
    your local government office will donate 49 (or 50-one for
    your classroom) postcards for your classroom project, or
    you can buy them at a local store which sells them. Iím
    not sure, but Triple A may have them as well and might be
    willing to donate. If you canít get donations, parents may
    be willing to help you out too. Postcard stamps are 28
    cents each, so you may want to ask for parent donations for
    those too.

    The postcard must have either the state name on the front
    or a picture representing your state. Students will get a
    chance to learn about other states as they receive
    postcards from around the country. You can have a bulletin
    board with a map set up if you choose to show where each
    postcard came from.

    Please email me if you are interested in participating in
    this project. Please email ONLY if you are serious about
    completing this project. There is only one slot open for
    each state, so I only want serious participants. If you
    know any teachers living in other states and want them to
    participate in the same exchange as you, email them quickly
    with this link.

    I will send out a master list to each participant once I
    receive all 49 participants.

    Please EMAIL me the following:

    Your name (First and last)

    Your grade level
    Your school name
    Your school address
    Your email address

    Target starting date: September 15th (More details to
    come!!)

    Target finish date: November 15th
