we’re writing letters with 4th graders today

Today, I’m invited to Mr. Wager’s 4th grade class at Grove Elementary School.  It’s their annual Valentine’s Day party, but I’m going to do a little something different with them today.  Hopefully the students are deep into their school day and this won’t be a spoiler for the party.  We’ll chat about all sorts of fun things related to Valentine’s Day, but we will also write letters and practice using fountain pens.

In a survey sent to the students earlier this week, many wanted to know if letter writing was still important in the internet age.  I was happy to see this video on The TODAY show this morning…which I think answers this question of most people today.
