Product Description
Answer Andie is a girl who has a newspaper column. She needs help! Kids have written to her asking for various advice. Students can edit the letters, re-write the letters with correct capitalization and punctuation, discuss, opine and respond to the letters.

With this packet, children can work on the following skills:
critical thinking, creative writing, handwriting, revising and editing, capitalization and punctuation, writing opinion pieces, participating in collaborative conversations, telling stories and recounting experiences to help form ideas for letter responses, using knowledge of language to write.

This packet has three focus areas:
Editing: The editing pages are longer versions of the letters that kids have written in to Answer Andie. Students use a red pencil or pen to correct punctuation and capitalization in the letter. These are no-prep; just print and use.

Rewrite the letters (using the letter cards): For each letter card, students re-write the letter on the pages provided adding needed punctuation and capitalization.

Answer the letters (using the letter cards): For each letter card, students (or in small groups/large group) write a response to the problem in the letter. Students can collaborate to form opinions on each letter topic, they can also deepen their understanding of the topics by sharing experiences. Then, students can write individual letters or they can be written as a class.


Included in this packet:
*An Answer Andie bulletin board picture to put alongside examples of student’s written work.

*Two letters from Answer Andie explaining what she needs them to do.


*20 letters written by children who need advice. These letters are fictional, but contain problems that real children deal with. Some of the problems are serious, some are comical, and some include strong emotions. All of these issues allow students to think through a positive solution. Each letter contains capitalization and punctuation errors. These letters are colorful and can be printed on cardstock, cut apart, and laminated for future use.

*20 long versions of each letter for children to edit. These are no-prep pages and can be printed on regular computer paper.

*Pages for children to re-write the letters with correct punctuation and capitalization. This includes two versions: one with primary lines and one with single lines for more advanced writers

*Pages for children to write their own well-thought-out responses to the letters. This includes two versions: one with primary lines and one with
single lines for more advanced writers.

:) Happy Teaching!
