    this year my big project is to do a buddy exchange. since i live in boston, my classroom theme is baseball (GO RED SOX!) and our buddy is going to be Wally the Green Monster. starting in september, i'm going to send wally to different classrooms around the united states. he's going to stay in each room for a few days. teachers, or students, will be able to write in a journal that he is going to bring with him. i'm also including a few pictures from the red sox parade when they won the world series in 2004. there will also be a children's book for you to read to your class. after a few days, he'll be mailed out to the next classroom, or he'll come back to my classroom to "inform" us of his travels. i also plan on building my website and adding a page to show where wally is and what he has done. i've even contacted the red sox organization to see if they want to be involved in any way.

    i already have 18 states signed up and would love to get more! i'm really excited about doing this project and using it as a way to teach geography in my classroom. i've done postcard exchanges in the past, and my students have always loved it. i figure they'll love sending wally all over the united states even more! we would love to have you sign up for our project!

    please email me if you would like to participate. i'll be sending out a more detailed email by the end of august to all that are participating in my project. again, i would love to have you!!!
