This week we got replies from our penpals in California!
In November we wrote letters to my sister’s first grade class in Red Wood City, California. First class were so excited to hear back from their new friends in America.
We each got our letters, read them and then shared some cool things our penpals wrote with the whole class. There were some cool connections between our new friends already. Some had the same favourite movie, food or colour as their penpal. Others had the same or similar hobbies. One American penpal even had a parent from Kildare! First class were bouncing off the walls with excitement. We couldn’t wait to reply, we started straight away!
