I promised a big reveal today, so here we go! Key a huge puff of smoke, hundreds of Pink Floyd neon laser-lights flashing, and that music you hear during time outs at basketball games . . . oh yes . . . It’s time for The Perfect Pen Pal Pair Up!
Okay, now that I got my little comedy routine out of the way, I can get down to biz-ness! I cannot wait to tell you about this super fun event I am hosting.
|Thank you Scrappin’ Doodles, LD, and Miss Tiina Fonts!|
I don’t know about you, but I have always wanted to start up pen pals in my classroom. However, I never quite knew where to start. Finding a partner seemed so difficult. Well, that all changed for me this year when sweet Nicole approached me. The utter excitement I felt from this is still going strong and I am all set up for the upcoming school year. Others should get to experience this as well and I am going to help!
If you are interested in becoming a committed pen pal for the upcoming school year, simply click on the Pair Up button below and fill out the Google Doc form before Sunday, August 12th.
Once the submission deadline passes, I will do my very best to provide you with the best possible pen pal pair up! I will contact you directly with your pen pal’s info as soon as I have the list compiled.
This event is now closed 🙂
If you are still wondering how you are going to manage this whole pen pal deal in your classroom, I did make a Pen Pal Packet for my partner and I to use this year. It contains everything you need to start and maintain a long distance classroom connection.

Well, I am out of here. Gotta go out for coffee – my Mr. Coffee bit the dust yesterday. I should have gone before sitting down at my computer as my innner-hag is starting to appear, but I wanted to crank out this post! Thanks so much for visiting and here’s to making lasting connections and building better writers in the process 🙂
**If you could “pin,” facebook, or blog abut this, I would greatly appreciate it. The larger the pool, the better match ups we will have! Also, if you have additional questions about The Perfect Pen Pal Pair Up, feel free to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
