We have just begun a pen pal project between 5th graders in Santa Fe and 3rd graders in Seattle. Our first discovery: 3rd graders can't read cursive very well, so the 5th graders will be printing next time. Also, we discovered it's better not to use last names, not only for security, but because last names are hard for young children to read and pronounce. Any other tips from people who have done pen pal projects?
