In my first grade classroom, we have been working on our letter writing skills. The students are having a blast!
We start our unit with an intro to letter writing with the adorable book, Please, Write Back. I let the students choose to write to whoever they want. Some of my sweeties, chose to write to me.
We also learned about persuasive letter writing through Click, Clack, Moo: Cows that Type and Giggle, Giggle, Quack.
Another favorite series for persuasive letter writing is the I Wanna Iguana, I Wanna New Room, and I Wanna Go Home books by Karen Kaufman Orloff. My students and I love to laugh and these books deliver the laughs!
If you want to continue the laughter and the persuasive letter writing, check out The Day the Crayons Quit and The Day the Crayons Came Home.
This year we did not get to do our Tooth Fairy letters but here are photos from years past.
I encourage you to check out my Letter Writing resource on TpT for more ideas and letter writing themed printables. I thoroughly enjoy teaching this unit.
I also have this freebie for you. Just click to download from Google Drive.
Here are the links to a few of the many letter writing themed books I utilize:
