Your classroom will be placed in a team of 22 other classrooms
from a variety of locations and grades.
Your classroom will also be placed with 3 organizations (such
as Children's Hospital, St. Jude's, Veteran's Hospital) etc.
You and your classroom will need to create 25 cards to send ONE
to each member of your group. (You can purchase cards but homemade
ones are so much nicer. Though this project overlaps with Feb.
14th......your cards DO NOT have to be Valentine
Cards -- you are welcome to be as creative as you wish!)
You will need to create a document (brochure, letter, etc.) to
place in each card. This information needs to include information
about your classroom, your school, your city, and your location
(state/country). This should not be teacher created. Please allow
your students to contribute.
You are encouraged to create return address labels for your classroom.
Group listings will be mailed on on January 26, 2007. They will
be sent in PDF format. If you don't have adober reader, please
You and your students will need to address each card from the
address list provided.
Please double check inside each card to verify that the card has
been signed, and has your school name, grade, and location. (Some
classrooms allow the entire class to sign cards, some classrooms
have individual students sign cards. That is fine. However, the
teacher name, school, grade, and location need to be on each card
All cards must
be mailed out by February
7, 2007 to ensure delivery during the week of February 12 - 16,
Once you receive a card, classrooms are encouraged to create a
display of the cards. You are also encouraged to map the cards.
(older students might wish to use google maps)
Once you have received a card, please check them off your listing.
If you like, you are also encouraged to send an email letting
them know that the card arrived. (However, this is a suggestion
3 cards you are sending to organizations will probably NOT respond.
This is a good opporunity to share with your students about anonymous
giving and also the joy that one feels when receiving mail.
Please visit our bulletin board during February 12 - 16th to share
class comments, card photos, etc.
