My students are writing letters to themselves in high school! My plan is to keep the letters in a file until they are in 9th grade and then give them to each student! It will be fun for them to read about what they were like and their goals as a 2nd grader (in my classroom's case, but can definitely be used in any grade)! I'm also hoping it will fuel their excitement and ease their nerves as high school students! Fingers crossed. :)
I made this helpful organizer/template to guide myself to write a quality letter with lots of details. The template was the rough draft before they wrote it on nice, neat writing paper.
