For anyone not following the LWA (Letter Writers Alliance) blog I thought I would repost this here.
"L.W.A. member Laura sent this project our way. It's another class postcard project, but this one has a fun, holiday theme.
They have a Gingerbread Man in their classroom and will read stories about him and one day he will disappear and they will discover he has run away (like in the story). The class will make a plan to get him back and try to solve the mystery of where he went. Here comes the "need help" part. They need friends and family to send postcards from other places to report sightings of their missing friend. They will map each postcard and track his journey. If you can help please send a postcard to the address below keeping the points below in mind.
-Begin each postcard with "Dear Madison"
-Say that you were doing something ordinary when you spotted the Gingerbread Man
-Report that you tried to stop him, but he turned and shouted "Run, run, as fast as you can. you can't catch me I'm the Gingerbread Man!"
-Mail them to:
Mrs. Schindler's Kindergarten Class
Nottingham Country Elementary
20500 Kingsland Blvd
Katy, TX 77450
Neat,huh? I wish a teacher would have done this with my class when I was younger. Who knows...maybe we will do this in the library next year?
