A Package For Our GRA Pals!

This year, our class will be participating in the Global Read Aloud with an author study of Amy Krouse Rosenthal. Other classrooms at SMS will also be participating, as well as several classrooms from around the world! We are going to do our author study along with a second grade class at Outlook School in Outlook, Saskatchewan  in Canada! We will read and discuss our books together using twitter (our classroom account is @2RGiraffes) to send each other questions and responses using the hashtags #GRA15 and #SaskToStratham. We will also literally read together from time to time using Google Hangout!

In order to kick off our author study with our Global Read Aloud Buddies, we wrote them letters and and put together a package of all things New Hampshire. We send them maple salt water taffy, maple drops, a small container of maple syrup, rocks and shells from Rye beach, stickers, post cards, pictures, a class letter about NH, and some U.S. Currency!

Each of our letters/drawings told our buddies a bit about our school, and we also asked them a few questions about theirs! 

We sent out our package on Tuesday, and we are hoping it arrives to our buddies soon! They've also put a package in the mail for us, and we are very excited to see what is inside :)
