Letter Writing Unit

02 April 2011
I just posted my 62 page letter writing unit to TPT.  Click {here} to check it out.  It includes a bibliography of letter writing themed books, lessons based on those books, anchor charts, file folder word walls, and reproducibles.

I just finished the Help Me, Mr. Mutt! activities this week.  If you do not own this book, I suggest you purchase it.  I absolutely love it.  It is great mentor text for Voice. My students found it hysterical.  I am the owner of both dogs and cats, so I had a lot of Text to Self connections with this book.  After reading the book, we brainstormed problems dogs could have.  Then each student wrote his/her own letter in the voice of a dog needing advice.  The students then responded as Mr. Mutt to their own letters.  After that, they added the cat's quip and created a dog or cat craft.
