This week we will watch a Brainpop Jr. on how to write a letter. We will use this as a platform to create a template for how we will write our opinion letters. They will continue to use their "Things I Want to Change" sheet and their graphic organizer they created last week to help them write a letter.
Not only letter and expressing one's opinion will be our focus, but being able to use correct conventions (capitals, handwriting and punctuation). So they will create a rough draft of their letter and then switch letters with a partner and help each other correct any grammar or convention that they need to. Each partner will get a turn and after they meet, they will take their revised letter and write a final copy. We will mail out these letters hopefully Monday of next week!
Last year I had a few kids write to companies and they actually responded! Some got food coupons! So I'm hoping this happens again. If your child writes to you :) , it'd be great if you wrote them back and sent it to the school! They'd think it was so cool to get a letter!
