Correspondance avec la France

This year, the class of second and third grade will correspond with a third grade class in Aiglun - Alpes de Haute-Provence, France. The children of that class had Didier as a teacher when they were in 1st grade...
The 2nd and 3rd grade students wrote texts to introduce themselves and took their photos: the game for the French students will be to match each description to the correct photo.
They also wrote a collective letter presenting L'Ecole Française du Maine, illustrated it with photos, and added maps where the children in France can look for:
-The United States
-The State of Maine

Once all this work was done, the class went to the post office to send their mail. Angie, the postmaster, welcomed them warmly, as usual. The children even helped her with her work. They learned many things about mail (postage, address, route...).

Without realizing it, the children have worked on French, writing and geography.

Merci Angie!
We are now impatient to receive a reply from France!
