We finally sent mail!

It’s been a long time since I wrote this post. But, I’m happy to say after nearly 2-3 months(too long!)…

…We finally have mail to send to our friends at The Circle School.

It was a lot of work.

And sadly we’re still missing two letters(for the Circle School’s 8th grade)… but my fourth form couldn’t wait any longer… for me to send their letters!

One of my Fourth Form students:”Will we get new letters tomorrow?”

Me: “No… but, I promise soon.”

The kids worked so hard….

…And I’m so proud of them!!!

I let all my students use a 'template' I created to write to their friends(a lot of them worry about spelling and grammar). I also sent templates to my student's friends in America to use if they wish (using language/topics I thought they'd be familiar with based on age level and what we've covered in their textbooks).

And yes… If the Ukrainian postal system loses their letters- I may cry right along with my fourth formers.

Which is why- I just may have taken a picture of each letter to ensure that my student’s friends get their letters even if they do! 😛

After all that we’re happy to finally say:

Mikan and Toby your letters are on their way!

Mikan and Toby your letters are on their way!
