This letter writing set is the perfect get to know your students activity pack for back to school. Included are 30 letter templates and ideas to get teens thinking and writing. Also a super cool Renaissance letter activity for the first day back.

Letter to my future self: I use this with pupils on the first day of the year – so if I have repeated classes we end up with quite a collection! I keep them in a jar on my window sill all year and then we look at them again at the end of the year.

30 extraordinary get to know you letters: these letters can be used for classwork, bell ringers or as homework. Each letter template includes a topic and instructions that challenges students to write letters to you that are engaging and meaningful.

Some of the 30 topics included are: equality, coffee dates, the perfect road trip, school rules, the future of humanity, whether animals have feelings, and the power of teens.
