My Amazing Pen Pal

I came across this program and it looks like so much fun! My Amazing Pen Pal is a monthly program that is about a man named Greg who travels around the world sharing his adventures with your student. It is designed for children ages 6-11 and a subscription can be either for 6 months or a year. Your daughter will learn about culture. traditions, crafts, foods, and animals for each of the onsite locations to which your amazing pen pal travels.

A monthly package arrives at your door that includes links to weekly videos to learn about culture, traditions, food, and animals of the region he is traveling. There are weekly videos, activities,  recipes, and games to play. Your son will learn several phrases in the language that is spoken in that country and will also work on history, geography, math, and problem-solving skills. It is also interactive because you can email Greg with questions that he will answer! How cool is that? If I were a child I would be begging my parents to join this program. (No, I am not getting any compensation to write this review. 🙂 )

For more information, you can go to My Amazing Pen Pal’s website. Please let me know if you decide to do it and tell me how you like it. My Amazing Pen Pal
