Staying in contact with your students

You are partnered with another UWGB student and as a team you can contact your fifth grade students. Contacts include cards, emails, letters and visits to the school. No matter what you say, you will make their day! Ask them how school is going and tell them about your experiences. Ask them about hobbies and share some information about yourself. You don't have to disclose personal information. Just let them know you care!
