Student Letters

My students have written letters about themselves which I will be sending to third graders at Edgewater Elementary. Before I ship them off, I had to share a funny one with you. I am typing it (I'll include the errors...), to save time trying to figure out the scanner. It's from Pablo (who wants his new penpals to know him as "Paul).

Dear Stranger,
I am Paul, A happy mexican hat learns English every week. I like to read, cook, sports, and video games. I would like that you write me a letter and to know where you live. I would like to know if you have a Pet. I am 10 years old. I live in Bugambilias, a neighborhood in mexico. My favorite color is red. My brother's name is Fernando. My dad is a famos Toyota car salesman in Guadalajara. My mom bakes fresh chocolate muffins. I go to Lincon school. I like math class and. I do my homework every day.

Your new friend,

Note: He does not do his homework every day. And I have yet to recieve any fresh chocolate muffins :)


  1. Que preciosa!! Tara, I must say that after everytime I talk to you I somehow feel better about myself and about my life, and I wonder to myself why it is that I do not talk to you as much as I can. You are one of the most wonderful, amazing, beautiful people I have ever met, and your students should be praising God every single day for sending someone as special as you into their lives. Please, please, please can we write each other more? I know that we are both extremely busy and are being as adventurous as we can, but I feel as if talking to you is good for my soul, therefore I feel like I should do it more. I hope you feel the same :)

    Man, do I sound needy or what?
