Holiday Card Exchange

Written by: Riley, Brycen, and Nadia

Do you ever get special holiday cards in the mail? If so, do those cards brighten your day? If you are having a bad day and you get a card in the mail, it will make your day better. Well, Mrs. App's class is participating in a holiday card exchange program so we can brighten other people's day and our day will be happy too! We are creating cards and we will be sharing them with kids in different schools in different parts of the world. Each person in our class makes a card. The theme for the cards this year is "Songs of the Season."  We will be sending them in the mail to different schools around the world. Most of the kids we send cards to will send cards back to us. Every card has information about the school the kids are come from. For example, it has the school name, teacher name, location, grade level, three interesting things about your classroom, the average temperature on Dec 17th, and a spot for anything extra you want to share. Everyone in our class will fill out this information card. We get to decide what we want to include for our three interesting things about our school on our card. Everyone gets to pick a holiday song for our card theme. Riley is choosing Jingle Bells, Nadia is choosing Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, and Brycen is choosing  "Santa Claus is Coming to Town." We think it is fun to make cards for other people We are so excited to see the cards that we will get every day. It makes us feel happy inside to know other kids will see what we make. It will be fun to see what other kids can do. We received our first card yesterday! Funny, it was actually from a fourth grader in a Wisconsin school. The name of the school was Madison Elementary in Manitowoc, WI. We are loving the cards and maybe you should send someone a holiday card to put a smile on their face.
