Eager Canadian kids seeking postcards from around the world!

Hello everyone! My name is Claudia Klippenstein and I am a grade 4 teacher at a rural elementary school in central Alberta. I joined Postcrossing a few months ago and have really enjoyed sending and receiving postcards and being a part of this cool community!

We have just started the school year here and I see there are several teachers who have benefitted from the generosity of the Postcrossing community. I would also love to start a project where my class receives postcards and learns about the places they come from. We would love to hear from your corner of the world! My students are in Grade 4 (age 9-10) and are curious, kind, smart kids. Please tell us about your life and the community you live in!

I would be so grateful for your contribution to my students’ learning. Your postcard will be hung up on our wall for all to admire. If you’d like us to write back to you, please send me your address. Thank you so much!

Update: Everyone here is so generous! We can’t wait to receive your cards!


I’m fully happy to write to you, and I’m also fully DBS checked for working with children if you would like to arrange a back-and-forth.

I’m thinking of perhaps taking my Baby Yoda teddy to different landmarks in my city and perhaps at some points my country and then writing about them. Would this be a good idea?

Hi @claudiaklipp, I teach a grade 4 class in English (only second year of learning English), there are 19 kids in the class, same age as yours. I don’t know if that could work - but what do you think about some kind of exchange between the classes? We live in Germany, northern part, in a rural area.
