Writing to Gramma Gallimore

A great idea for teachers:

Involve your parents in projects with your kids!!

 

Whether I taught 2nd grade or 6th grade, my mom…Gramma Gallimore…chose to write letters to my kids. They were about anything and everything…animals, surfing, Florida, space, whatever looked good to her at the time..she would share tidbits of her life with my students. That was exciting enough, but…my kids then had to return letters to her, telling her about themselves, thanking her for treats she may have sent, asking her questions for future letters. The amazing thing is that my mom has kept all these letters!!! Some were from as long ago as the ’80′s right up until I retired in’09.

 

Many of these students have kept in contact with me, which is so exciting to me!! I’m checking now to see if some of them remember the Gramma Gallimore picnic we had for Gramma and Grandad when they were visiting Michigan a few years ago. Here are some photos to help bring back memories:

Here is Gramma’s letter and a response from a 5th grader:

with Mr. Seader, the principal

 

The kids loved these back and forth letters, usually about 5 a year; but more importantly, it’s one of my mother’s favorite memories.  Thanks, kids!!!

 

Happy Parenting!
