Joshua and Jonah are going to be in a pen pal relationship with some children from the UK. Part of the classroom work during the Joint Learning Session the boys just finished is letter writing. Both boys wrote great letters. Joshua’s was a persuasive letter as to why a miniature golf course is needed in Yaoundé. Jonah’s letter was to a pen pal. We can’t post Joshua’s because we don’t want any political ramifications. Jonah’s rough draft is below. It made me (DeAnna) smile, laugh and cry.
My name is Jonah. Do you like ice cream? Have you rode a bike? Do you like school, I do? Do you like swimming? Do you like to have snacks? I broke my fingers and one of them were cut off and the other one does not bend. Have you rode a horse, I have? They have a lot of dirt roads. (meaning here) Our house is in a place called Yaoundé. The zoo has a monkey cage. Once we went to a place and the monkeys threw poop at my mom.
