PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Letters to the Future is a lesson plan developed by Laura Candler for having students write letters to themselves that will be delivered in the future. The activity can be completed electronically using the website FutureMe.org which will automatically deliver an email on a specific date in the future, or it can be completed as a paper and pencil activity with letters being delivered personally. This teaching packet includes a sample parent letter, teaching suggestions, and a graphic organizer for brainstorming ideas.

You could always mail them home at the end of the year, send them to the next year's language arts teachers, give them out on the last day of school, or wait until graduation and give them as graduation gifts. Great idea.

Thanks, Laura! I think this will be a great way for my students to ease back into school and writing after their holiday break! Also, knowing how much children do change, I think they will get a kick out of reading their letters in a few years. I think I may keep them and have them have to come back and visit me to get them though! Nothing makes me happier than seeing my former students!

I love this idea but the delivery method is still up in question for me. Email addresses change and people move, kids grow up a lot from 4th grade - no one really knows where they will be in several years. I think this is something I would send home in a sealed envelope for Mom (or guardian) to save for the child at a future date. I love the general idea though!!!
On  October 13, 2013Laura Candler answered:
I agree with your comments, although I find it a bit disheartening to have the rating drop on this freebie as a result of your rating. It took a lot of work to put this item together and share it for free. Perhaps you are not aware that you can comment on something without rating it. Usually the value in giving an item a lower rating is to keep people from wasting money on it, but that's not the case for this freebie.
