In case you aren't familiar with the project, teachers sign up their classes to participate, get placed in a group with 25 other teachers from as many varied states and Canadian provinces as possible, then are assigned a letter of the alphabet to have their class decorate. That teacher keeps one letter, mails out the other 25, and should receive the rest of the alphabet decorated by other classes. Each letter usually includes a note from the class or teacher about where they're from and makes for a fun lesson in geography as well as reading. You can find out more about it and see some photos teachers have sent of their alphabet displays in these past posts here and here.
Sign ups will start on tomorrow, June 22, and run through July 24. I have to start and end a little earlier than usual because school starts a little earlier for us than it has before and I want to get all the groups made and emailed to you before things get too crazy here. I'll post a Google form as I have before. Please only sign up if you truly think you will follow through with the project.
Before I go, I'd like to introduce you to the newest member of our family, little Jackson. He's about
2 1/2 months old. He's been with us for a few weeks already. He and his 2 siblings had a rough start to life. They were found in the attic of a house and their mother had passed away. They were only about 3 weeks old. Thanks to the help of his wonderful foster family, Jackson's now a very happy kitty whose life consists of lots of PLAY, eating, and a little sleep.
Here's Jackson when we first got him
Have a great Sunday!
