Praise for Postcards from Barney Bear lesson
"My name is Christie P. I am a first grade teacher in Columbia, Kentucky. In writing, we are focusing on writing postcards. I borrowed this lesson from a co-worker [from the resource guide featured on this page]. My students love it! I have created the take-home project using Barney, a backpack, and a class book. We will start his journey tomorrow! We will finish our project by writing real postcards to family and/or friends and mailing them. This is a very engaging lesson that I am sure my students will never forget! I plan on purchasing your Learn to Write book set and resource guide the next time I go shopping. Thank you for creating such fun, hands-on projects! Happy Trails to Barney!" –Mrs. Christie P., Columbia, Kentucky
