Keep the emails coming! :)
This project is off to a wonderful start thanks to the kindness of so many strangers we have yet to meet.We are so excited to learn about each and every one of you!No letter is too short or too long...we will love them all just as equally! We are so excited about receiving our very first letter and where it will be from!
Are you still thinking about joining but haven't yet?Need some ideas of what to write about?Here are just some of the things you can write about...again,feel free to write in a language other than English so my kids can work on getting it translated.That's called fun learning! ;)
Here's some things you can write about-(please feel free to write about something not on the list):
-Your homeland (prime minister,president,population,traditions,language,food,etc.)
-Your dreams for the year or your life
-Your favorite book...we'd love some recommendations...especially for children's books in other languages
-Tell us about the weather you are having (we're actually getting snow right now & it's beautiful!)
-Tell us about your hobbies....one of our favorite hobbies is penpalling!
-Tell us about your family...what do they do that makes you so happy?
-Maybe you could give us some words of wisdom...."if I could do it all over again,I would....."
-Famous quotes from your country
-Write the alphabet in your native language
-Share a family recipe (we promise not to tell if it's a secret) :)
-Tell us about the things that are important to you
-Share your goals for 2011 or have you given up on goals?
-Do you live on a farm,in the city...where do you live?
Again,these are just a few ideas of what you could write about to help you get started.Feel free to choose your own topics that are family appropriate.Help us spread the word about this great project....I've always told my kids to dream big and some people think our goal is too big,but help us prove them wrong and show my kids that any goal can be accomplished if you just try hard enough.Wishing you all a great weekend!
