This fall, Ben is working with teachers to provide a fun and free letter-writing activity for classrooms. Students will exchange letters with Ben the Rooster and design their own custom holiday cards. Then parents can order the cards, and you'll earn credits to purchase more activities from Ben's Paper Shop.
The holiday card activity works as follows:
1) Ben writes to your class asking each student to design a holiday card. Ben provides postcards that students use to draw a design on the front and write a note on the back. This is a great classroom activity for practicing the five parts of a friendly letter and encouraging literacy, creativity, and friendship.
2) Ben receives all of the designs and creates a page for your class where parents see their child's design and order cards. Here's an example.
3) With each set of custom holiday cards purchased, 50% of profits are donated directly to your class in the form of credits to Ben’s Paper Shop. With these credits, you’ll be able to purchase other experiences and letter writing activities for your students.
If you're interested in participating, please let me know! Just leave your name, email, and a note with the name of your school, its address, and your student count. The phone number is not required. I'll be in touch!
Have a sunny day,
Jason, Ben's human friend
