    Hello everyone!
    Are you interested in being part of the Canadian postcard
    exchange for the 2016 / 17 school year? Here's how it
    You send me an email with the following information:
    The way you want your postcards' addressed (ie. Mrs.
    Smith's Class)
    Your school address

    As soon as I get that, I will respond with an email that
    says you're on the list. Now, you have all kinds of time
    to change your mind: Right up until the long weekend in
    September, actually. Many teachers need a day or two at
    the end of August / Beginning of September to check with
    their administration to see if they can get the funds
    required for postcards and stamps.
    During the September long weekend, I will send an email
    to everyone, assigning you the week to send out your
    postcards. You send one postcard, with info about your
    community, to each of the participating classes. (There
    are usually about 40-50.) I will go first, and if you
    have a specific month that you'd like to send yours out,
    just specify it. Most teachers write their messages with
    the help of their students, or have individual students
    write them.

    That's pretty well it! Depending on the number of
    participants, we usually get 1-2 postcards per week.
    This really is a great way to teach about different
    Canadian communities. The kids love to get the postcards!
    I play a little game with my students. I tell them the
    name of the community and they see if they can guess
    which province it comes from. It's a great way to teach
    the names of the provinces!

    So, if you're interested, please send me the info in the
    format below.
    Mrs. Smith's class, Public Elementary School,
    1234 Main Street.
    Wonderful Community, AB

    My email is

    Please put Postcard Exchange in the subject line, or I
    will send it to junk. I will always respond to the email
    to confirm that I received it. If you donít hear from me
    within a week, please send me another email.
