Have you ever heard of a postcard exchange? I have heard of such an idea, but have yet to participate. I found two exchanges on some awesome teacher websites, Primary Graffiti and Barrow’s Hodgepodge, but Texas was already taken. So I would like to start my own exchange. From what I understand, a postcard exchange is where 50 teachers (one from each state) have their students write and mail the postcards out to the other participating classes. You will need to purchase at least 49 postcards and stamps. I would like to open the exchange to all kindergarten teachers who have a blog, website or any other means to share postcard exchange updates, pictures, etc… I would like for all participants to be able to share in some form and a blog is super easy, but the more I think about it, the more I am open to accepting other kinder teachers without a blog or public site! The exchange will be open on a first come, first serve basis. All participants should mail out their postcards by the end of October. The deadline is set to allow time for correspondence between participants throughout the upcoming school year. Look HERE to see if your state is available. I would like for all participants to include an introduction to their classroom and a fact about their state. Please also include a line “want to learn more about ____________, just contact us at ___________.” If you would like to join the exchange, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, school, state, and blog. I will then send you a conformation email. If a reply isn’t made within several days, I will select the next person available. I am SO excited!!
