During or after your unit on Friendly Letters, have your students write a letter to the President of the United States. This printable includes 5 pages which include: directions for the student with checklist, rubric, planning page, and a rough & final draft page. Students will be so excited when they receive a response back from the White House!
This download helped me greatly in creating a second grade letter writing unit - especially great for engagement amidst the elections! I ended up writing my own versions of the directions and pre-planning page to cater it to a younger audience, but used many of your ideas to aid me in their creation. The pre-planning page was a great idea and very helpful PDF.
