Hi everybody!
We have received about 50 postcards from all over the world - thank you so much! I put them all on the blackboard, having my students guess what this is supposed to be. The could hardly believe that these postcards were all for them! Some of them thought it was all fake and I had to insist that these cards were from real people…
We have about a dozen postcards which I put in the mail on Wednesday and more will follow. However, there are two weeks of Easter-break ahead of us so school won’t start before early April. And: It’s a slow process. Many kids don’t know how to write a postcard - it’s simply a different generation. So I basically have to start from scratch, telling them where to leave space for the stamp and the address and how to manage the rest of the backside. We had to throw quite a few postcards into the garbage bin because they wrote their text all over the back side, having already forgotten me saying: Leave room for stamp and address. But we’ll continue after Easter break and I promise more postcards will follow. Each of my students has to write 4 - in the end they hopefully know how it works :slight_smile:

Happy to hear that the project is going well! I sent you a postcard from Bologna, Italy.
If you ever need more adresses please let me know, I didn’t write it in the card because of space.
If not, no problem! Hope my card arrived :two_hearts:

It might be my fault: I sent you a card and a letter in an envelope. Stamps and address are on the envelope, not on the postcard.
