Instructional Ideas

  • Make an activity more relevant by printing these out on card stock and requiring learners to send postcards to someone in particular (a politician, an author, a scientist)
  • Tie the postcards into literature study; pupils can illustrate a scene and write a note to a character, or take on the persona of a character to write to another person in the story
  • Have learners write postcards to themselves at the beginning of the year and save them to send home at the end of the year
  • Grow your students' relationships with pen pals or classroom buddies with customized postcards
  • Ask parents and guardians to write short notes to their students during Back-to-School Night and hand out the missives to pupils at the beginning or end of the year
Classroom Considerations

  • Make sure you print this double-sided so that your postcards have both a back and a front
  • There isn't much space provided for writing
Pros

  • Both pages are planned out so you can simply make double-sided copies, cut the pages in four, and get started with the postcards
Cons

  • None
