I have a favor to ask
It's hard to believe but my Christmas vacation is almost over. There are only 100 more days of school until summer vacation. Every year I hit up my friends and family for postcards of their hometowns and/or vacation spots. We use them in class to learn about other areas and compare them to where we live. Our goal is to try and collect 100 postcards by the 100th day of school. Well, our 100th day is fast approaching and we still don't have 100 postcards.
I don't teach at an inner city school, but it is a city school and the kids in my kindergarten class don't get to travel much. These glimpses into other places have opened up a whole new world for them and they are planning the spots they would like to visit someday. So, if you would be willing to send us a postcard from your town or state or vacation spot I would greatly appreciate it. Our 100th day is on January 31st. It won't be a problem if your postcard arrives after that because we'll still be collecting postcards for the rest of the year.
Here's the address if you can help:
