Think outside the box for Friendly Letter Writing.
Teach friendly letter writing to primary students by writing to cereal box characters. You remember your Saturday morning cartoon watching with Snap, Crackle & Pop, Lucky the Leprechaun, Tony the Tiger and many more! When you combine eating cereal with writing to the characters on the box, students wonÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½t put their pencils down.
This unit includes additional cereal and writing activities as I just couldnÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½t help myself!

Did this last week with my second graders and they LOVED it! It got them excited about writing and they put a lot of time and effort into their letters. I put all of their letters in the "mail". (Parent volunteers who have agreed to respond to the letters as that cereal box character) Can't wait to see my students' reactions when the response letters arrive. Thank you!
