I love it when students connect with authors. You never know when you might be teaching a future author. Cynthia Rylant’s website (click HERE) encourages students to write to her. She will send a postcard to the teacher. Writing a letter to Cynthia Ryland would be a great extension for:
Geography: locate where she grew up on a map
Friendly letter unit
Persuasive writing unit
◼Model writing a letter with your class on the white board or chart tablet paper.
◼Introduce the color code pages.
◼Ask volunteers draw a box around the parts of the letter using the color system.
◼After reading different books by Cynthia Rylant, your students will write a letter to the author.
There are also Morning Messages included so your students can have additional practice color coding parts of a letter.
