Putting Your Thoughts on Paper

Letter Writing

Reading and Writing Connection: An excellent family connection… choosing someone to write a letter to (a keepsake moment)!

  • Paper (personal journal or theme book); sharpened pencils with erasers; crayons and colored pencils.
  • Each family member has chosen a book to write about (help the littles by drawing the story caterpillar then let them tell you the information from their book).
  • Draw names for the “who” their letter will be written to.
  • Set a timer for 10 minutes and begin their letter. *Whole group for the first time is encouraged. As everyone is writing, ask someone to look at the letter formation above and call out what to write:
  • Todays: date... Dear____My book is aboutFirstThenFinally (if they haven’t finished the book ask them to write what they think will happen next)… My favorite part was whenclosing.
  • Those that get done early… ask them to illustrate a scene from their book.
