Product Description

See the entire letter/time capsule by downloading the preview. Are you looking for a new idea that asks students to begin the school year thinking about the future? This activity is academically important, personally meaningful, and loads of fun. It's a more sophisticated time capsule.

Students are asked to write a friendly letter to their future self. This item includes:

All parts of a friendly letter - both labeled and defined.

A five paragraph format.

Paragraphing guidelines.

Paragraph contents - including questions addressing a description of their present self, school, a special friend, social and academic goals, and future hopes and dreams.

The ABC list of character traits.

A quote by Confucius.

A final draft writing template (a rough draft is optional).

An illustration page with directions for completion.

A word search for review purposes (great for early finishers).

Learning targets.

The letters allow you an understanding of writing skills, interests, social and academic strengths/weaknesses, and future dreams.

The letter forces students to think about how the present impacts the future. One option is to ask students to write the letter at the start of the school year, and then return it to them at the end of the school year. Students love to see how they've changed and grown. Expect lots of giggles.
