    I'm getting some wonderful responses for my project and would love to have more hosts! here is my information on the proejct:

    iteach second grade in boston, and i want to do a year long project with my class. in the past i have done a postcard exchange, and it has worked out well. but to go along with my theme i want to do this: i plan on buying a toy red sox mascot - wally the green monster. i would love to have classes sign up to host him for a few days. he'll come with a notebook and you can write a journal entry about what he did while he was with you. in the front of the notebook i'll include more topics that you'd be more than welcome to write about. along with writing in the notebook, you could include a postcard about your state's baseball team, a pencil, whatever you really wanted (or you don't havet put in anything at all, just write in the journal!). the goal would be for me to come up with a list of classes to send wally to. there would be particular order for wally to be sent, with him doing random pit stops back to my classroom. so you might not be sending him back to me, but instead will send him on his journey to another school.

    i think this will be a really fun project. i know my second graders will love anything that has to do with baseball and mail!!! my goal is to be able to send him to at least 15 OR MORE classrooms. would you be willing ot participate. in exchange, i can send you a postcard or whatever project your class might be working on. it'll be fun!!!!!

    email me and i'll come up with more detailed information if people are really interested! -
