It has been a busy week filled with assessments as we have Parent / Teacher conferences next week. Our writing focused on friendly letters. This week my students wrote a "Thank You" letter to someone in the school. They really enjoyed delivering their letters. We reviewed the parts of the letter - I made a giant poster. We also brainstormed a list of people who help us at school. They were amazed at how many helpful people work at our school. Our whiteboard was full of names.
We are patiently waiting to see if President Obama will reply to our letters from last week. We have had great practice with our friendly letter writing. :)
