A Postcard From Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.!

By Finn, Kristen, and Andrew

Over the past few weeks, we have been getting a lot of  postcards from all over the world!

Recently, we got a wonderful post card from Seattle, Washington. 
Mrs. Hembree and the Bulldog Readers sent us a terrific post card, and on the front was a photo of Mount Rainier. Mount Rainier the tallest mountain in the state of Washington. This mountain is 14,410 feet above sea level. Mount Rainier is a volcano. 

Finn has a connection to Seattle, Washington, because his cousin lives there.

We wonder, have any of the Bulldog Readers  been to Mount Rainier?

Has anyone ever been to Mt. Rainier or Seattle, Washington? If so, please share!


  1. Mrs. Yollis and class,
    I'm happy to see that you have been learning some new things about places all over the world. The Postcard from Seattle was easy for me to relate to because it is where I am from. It is nice to see that students are learning about how great of a place Seattle and Washington are. I learned alot looking at your blog, it has given me ideas on what I can do to create a sucessful final project in my technology in education class.

  2. Dear Mrs Yollis and students,

    How wonderful to receive another wonderful postcard from another one of your blogging friends the Bulldog Readers.

    What a beautiful photograhp of Mount Rainier. My goodnees it is a hugh mountain. To think that this huge mountain is 14,410 feet above sea level that is just amazing.

    Thank you for sharing such interesting fact about this awesome mountain.

    From your blogging pal,

  3. Dear Mrs. Yollis and students,

    I am also from Washington! I have been to Mount Rainier a couple times and it is beautiful. If you ever go to Seattle, you should try to go in the Space Needle. You can see the whole city, the Puget Sound, and mountains in the distance.

    I really enjoyed looking at your classes blog. It has a lot of ideas I can use in my future classes. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Dear Mrs. Yollis' Class,

    I am a former student of Mrs. Yollis. I have been to Seattle many times and would like you to know an interesting fact about the Space Needle . Did you know that the needle was built in 1962 and is over 600 ft. tall. It is the most famous landmark in Seattle. It was built right in the middle of Seattle Center. Wow!

  5. Dear Mrs. Yollis and class,
    This is Mrs. Hembree with some of the Bulldog Readers. Twelve of us have been to Mt. Rainier! It is cold there in the winter. Even in the summer, it usually pretty chilly walking around.
    In the late spring, after the snows melts near the base, the flowers start blooming in the fields.
