The Penpal Project with nursing home residents

 

Three Wishes for Ruby is helping connect the generations. Use our Penpal Project packet with your students. Nursing home residents contain a wealth of information and knowledge. They would love to hear from a student, answer questions and tell them about their history. For instance, students might ask ; "What was the greatest invention of your lifetime?". Students can also discuss the hardships residents face while living on low monthly stipends. It's a great way to help reduce social isolation in the elderly while showing students that language is a powerful tool to make change and open doors.  

Download our link to the packet to penpal with nursing home residents. Use this form as a guideline to set up a penpal between your classroom and a participating nursing facility you choose anywhere in the world.  

Be sure to send us great penpal stories to share! 3wishesforruby@gmail.com.
