This week our writing focus was on creating friendly letters. On Tuesday I introduced the components of a friendly letter and shared with the students how to compose a letter with all of the necessary parts.
We drafted letters to a person of our choosing and the students came up with many interesting topics to share about what was happening in their day to day life.
The following day, I gave an assignment to the students today to write a letter to someone different and many chose Roald Dahl, since we are doing a focus unit on his books. Other students chose people from the school or home setting and a few even wrote letters to imaginary characters. Here are some of the letters below:
