A Special Delivery from Scotland!


We were so excited today because we received some very special mail. It was a large envelope from

.

Mrs. Stewart and the P3S Superst☆rs!

.

Inside we found a postcard reminder that the Superst☆rs  use when they are writing to a Postcard Pal. Mrs. Stewart knew that we liked her idea so she decided to send one to us. We thought that was very kind! We will certainly put it to good use.

But that wasn’t all we found in our envelope. We received a very special book created by the Superst☆rs. It is called Flat Stanley Visits Primary 3S.

Scotland Book 004

.

Many of our blog buddies from around the world have been learning and sharing so much through the Flat Stanley books.

We thought this idea was fabulous! This unique book shares maps about Scotland, which really helps us with our geography.

It was so nice to see pictures of the Superst☆rs and Mrs. Stewart, too.

We learned many facts about Arbroath with Flat Stanley as our guide.  We think that Kerr’s Miniature Railway looks like fun!

We can’t wait to learn more about our friends’ very special country!

Thank you!

Postcard Pal Inquiry

 

We are so happy to be a part of the Postcard Project! This fabulous idea was created by Miss Leakey in New Zealand. We have received 6 Postcards so far. The Techie Kids love looking at the pictures on the cards and reading your messages.

Each new postcard helps us learn more about our world.

We’ve been making connections to our own experiences. We also have many questions. Because of our questions, we decided to create a Linoit board to track our wonderings.

  

If you can help us answer our questions or share more information that we can connect with, please add to our wall by leaving a sticky note.

 

Here is a tutorial for anyone who is unfamiliar with the Linoit tool.
