I asked my low fifth graders to write postcards from another country today. This was quite a task. Trying to explain “pretend” in a second language is near impossible. Eventually, I assigned them a country and they went with it. These are the postcards.
By the golfer girl who is “pretending” to be in the Phillippines.“G’day mate-tuh “(Konglish for “mate”)
From the boy who spent his vacation in England. Quadrupal-decker bus.
From the lazy student in Brazil.
To the parents of the Korean in Argentina.
I don’t think this kid understood the postcard concept.
