I hope you check out the packet on TpT, just click the photo images. As always, feel free to pin anything in this post and scroll down for a mini-giveaway!
I have included to versions of the "Parts of a Friendly Letter" posters. One relating it to a person and another basic one. Both are also included as student versions.
These are my two favorite Tooth Fairy books: Dear Tooth Fairy by Alan Durant and You Think It's Easy Being the Tooth Fairy? by Sheri Bell-Rehwoldt
The adorable Tooth Fairy clip art is by Lita Lita and it is free! I asked her permission to make a craft inspired by it. I think they came out pretty cute!
This letter made me laugh!
You all know I love my animals! This activity is a favorite of mine and great for voice! I start by reading Help Me, Mr. Mutt by Janet Stevens and Susan Stevens Crummel. I follow up by reading other books which showcase "Cat vs. Dog" voice. Here are a few of my favorites: My Big Dog by Susan Stevens Crummel, and I am the Dog, I am the Cat by Donald Hall.
Click, Clack, Moo Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin is a great book for persuasive letter writing.
I utilize her follow up book, Giggle, Giggle Quack, to have the students write letters to a sub pretending they are the teacher. The result: ridiculous plans for the day!
