This is a fun activity for the kiddos, and great for building writing fluency!

Why use Letter Writing Template? Letter Writing is NOT obsolete! Since email is far more common than letter writing, children need to be taught the protocol of writing letters.

How it works: These letter writing templates can be used anytime! Children can write letters to classmates, family members, or staff members. It's fun to have pre-address one envelope for each child, let them swap envelopes, and let them write to each other. (This makes a great activity for the sub tub!)

What’s included: This resource has an explanation for the parts of a letter and the parts of an envelope. Plus, it has a letter template and envelope template that can be run off back to back and tri-folded.

After a lesson on letter writing, this activity can be repeated over and over throughout the year!
