Integrated Projects Week at TSC
For Integrated Project Week (IPW) this year, I teamed up with my former associate teacher, Kirsten, (now a lead teacher at our school) to offer students the Creative Letter Writing Club. The students had proposed a variety of ideas for projects that centered around writing, and since Kirsten and I both appreciate the art of letter writing and sending real mail, we decided to offer that as a project. Throughout the week we created letter writing kits, made homemade envelopes and postcards, read many books about letters, and wrote to a variety of people, from authors to family members. The kids even wrote to The Magic Typewriter who lives in the lost and found at Grand Central Terminal, and we had a very mysterious and exciting letter exchange with The Magic Typewriter at Grand Central.
It was such a great week that we plan to revive the Creative Letter Writing Club again for next year's IPW.
