Dear Alexie,
We live in New Hampshire. We have a nurse at our school. The classroom has two fish and one hermit crab. I like to ride my bike. I also like to run and jog and I like to ride horses. My favorite food is noodles. What is yours? We will be waiting to hear from you!
Your friend,
Rachel

Dear Rachel,
My favorite food is noodles just like yours. My favorite book is Little Red Riding Hood. What is yours? We have tadpoles. All have legs. They live in a bowl. My favorite month is October. What is yours? I wish that you were here.
Love, your friend,
Alexie

Dear Alexie,
Are you excited for Thanksgiving? How are you doing? Who are your friends? What are your friends names? Do you have a loose tooth? I lost three teeth. How about you? Did you loose any teeth? I got a quarter for my tooth.
Your friend,
Rachel

To Noemi

Dear Noemi,


I am seven years old. I live in Beirut. I am happy to meet you all. Our school is small, but so nice. I have many friends. We like to play and read stories together. My favorite food is pizza. Do you like pizza? I also like to jump rope.
Your friend,
Nivine

Dear Nivine,
I do not like pizza. Our school is big. What I like to eat is noodles. I like to jump rope just like you. I have a dog. Do you have a dog?
Your friend,
Alexie


Dear Alexie, Rachel and Nivine
I like pizza too. My favorite kind is margarita. I like swimming a lot. We have a pool at home, I swim in it lots of times. Over the holiday we went to Zimbabwe. We saw friends of ours, Peter and MaryAnn. We saw the big water falls and looked at Zambia from that side.

Dear Alexie,

I do not have a dog. Do you like to play with your dog? Who takes care of it when you are at school? I have a new fish. It is yellow. I feed it every day. It is small. We have tests next week and then vacation.
Nivine

Dear Nivine,
No one watches my dog while I am at school. It stays in our yard and has an igloo doghouse. What kind of fish do you have? Do you feed it everyday? Is it small? We have tests today. Do you have vacation? We do in one week. Have you been having fun?
Your friend,
Alexie

Dear Alexie,
I hope that your dog won't feel bored the whole day. My fish is a gold fish. It's very small. I feed it every morning. I like to watch it swim in the acquarium.
We have tests this week, we still have the science test for tomorrow...It will be the last test this term. We have vacation at the end of March. Tell me what you like to do on vacations?
Nivine


Dear Alexie, Rachel, and Noemi,
I am Bayan and I'm happy to have new friends like you. I like your pictures. You look so friendly. I have a bird. It is red. It sings to me every morning before I go to school. What do you like to do on Sunday? I like to the mountains.
Bayan


Dear Bayan,
I love you for a friend too. I like your pictures. Have you been having fun? You look friendly too. You do have a bird? It is red? It sings? What kind of bird is it? Is it big or small? I don't know what I do on Sunday. Sometimes we go to church.
your friend,

Alexie

Dear Alexie,
Thank you my friend. Yes, my bird is red and sings. It's a small bird. On Sunday, I go to the mountains with my dad, mom, sister and brother. We have a house there. I play with my sister. We race and pick flowers in the meadow. I like Sundays. I hope you have fun this Sunday.

Dear Noemi,
Did you loose any teeth yet? I lost 3. Do you have any pets at your school? We do. We have one hermit crab and two fish. We have African drummers at our school.

Rachel

Hi Alexie, Rachel , Bayan and Nivine,
I love pizza and pasta with tomato sauce. I lost two of my bottom teeth and I have two of my up teeth wiggling. I have a brother who is 12 years old. I like to write to you, do you like to write like this? For Easter we might go on a safari again, maybe we won't go because my Dad might get operated on.

Dear Rachel,
I do like cats but I do not have a cat. My favorite food is an apple. Rachel it is spring! The snow is melting! Do you have a sister? Do you have a horse? If you do have a horse what will you name it?
Your friend,
Alexei

Dear friends,
I love lost 7 teeth. My birthday is in December. When is your birthday? Do you like cats and dogs? I do! I do not have a horse. How many teeth have you lost? We are learning about birds. What are you learning about? We have chickens in the classroom next to ours. We might go bird watching.

Your friend,
Rachel
