Second graders in Mrs. Johnston’s class at St. James Elementary School are working on their literacy skills while also learning about the geography of the United States. The students have been linked up with pen pals all across the U.S. They have written letters to students in other states, filled with information about their favorite book, why it’s their favorite book and facts about their state. In turn, the students have received information from others across all 50 states, also learning about the geography, state facts and favorite books. The students worked on their map skills while also getting a chance to sample different books chosen as favorites by their pen pals.
