I used to love going to the mailbox and seeing my name on an envelope. I could always tell who the letter was from because of their handwriting. E-mail doesn't hold that kind of magic. One of objectives we have as second grade teachers, is teaching children how to write a friendly, persuasive and business letter. I want to do that in a way that brings in some of the magic that I remember in letter writing. So I created this little unit. I put it up this morning. I contains a project to go with the book The Jolly Postman... and some work to go with I Wanna New Room. There are so many fun resources to use with this unit - it was hard to hone in on what I really wanted to use. I hope you will check it out! Just click a pic!
I hope your day is full of magic!
