Pen-Pal Letters: Japan

Pen-Pal Letters: Japan

It's never too early to learn how to write a letter. What better way to introduce your first grader to this important writing form than with a letter to a penpal. Sakura lives in Tokyo, Japan, where she eats lots of sushi and goes to school by train. Encourage him to reflect on his own life in the U.S., then write a letter back to Sakura telling her all about it. Don't be surprised if he asks you to find him a real penpal at the end!
