What a great weekend! Lots of house cleaning, and yard work! Phew! I'm pooped!! But I did have a bit of energy left to create a quick little supplemental unit for writing "Friendly Letters." I know letter writing has basically gone extinct, but we still believe that it is a great way for people to personally show interest in others. First grade is not too early to teach kids the proper way to write a friendly letter. This is, in fact, a great time of year to do exactly that. There are a ton of people around them who would love to receive a letter from a first grader!! Writing letters to show ideas in chronological order or logical sequence and use of appropriate conventions is a supporting standard in our district's writing curriculum. I love that!!
Here are a few pics from this 12 page unit.
The unit also includes some letter writing templates.
I can't wait to have my kids get busy sharing their messages with those they love!!
As always, thanks for stopping by for a peek!
You are the best!!
Let me know if you spot any typos or
inaccuracies in any of my docs!
Have a great rest of your weekend!!
Mine's almost over!
