I joined a group to allow the children to send and receive letters in the post from other home educated children. They were so excited to have some pen pals to write to! Its great because it means they get to practice their writing and reading without me having to say anything at all! In fact they actually want to read and write the letters themselves.
We have already received two letters in the post and hopefully ours will be back in the post by tomorrow. Its lovely how creative they get when writing letters, they drew pictures and put stickers on to their letters too.
