The Kindergartners had been writing to their Omaha Pen Pals all year and finally met in May, face-to-face, at Gemini Park for a picnic lunch and a few hours of play. Ms. Rowe teaches Kindergarten at Washington Elementary in Omaha, and is the sister of Mrs. Lewis. Mrs. Lewis said, “We don't know why it took us so long to think of this...it's been a wonderful incentive for the children to learn how to put their thoughts down on paper and give meaning to the written word. We wish we had started it long ago!” The children were so excited to finally meet each other. Mrs. Lewis' students presented their Pen Pals with a homemade writer's suitcase, so their friends would have writing supplies at their fingertips all summer long! For more photos click here.
