Looking for a Pen Pal Program?

The HSAMF (Home School Association for Military Families) Pen Pal Program
is a FREE literacy based, traditional letter writing program. It is a great way to get children writing traditional letters, a skill that is often lost in today's society, as well as make friends with children they would otherwise not have met. Both military and civilian families can get involved.

Quite honestly, it has been a great way to work on grammar and spelling with my children, without them even realizing they are "working on school."
