We all loved the notes written to Farmer Brown in this story! I thought it would be cute to let the children pretend to be other animals on the farm, and then write a letter asking what they would also like from Farmer Brown.
This activity is not only fun, but it will allow you to reinforce the letter components of date, greeting/salutation, closing, and signature lines
Stationery is included for letters from the dogs, the goats, the sheep, the pigs, the frogs, the turkeys, the horses, the mice, the donkeys, and the cats.
My children's letters included what they wanted and why. You might also include what might happen if they don't get what they want!
You might bind these into a class book for the children to pick up and read during free reading time. (A cover is included.) My class loved reading other student's letters and looking at all of the drawings.
You might also make up individual student books if you have your students write five or six letters. Bind those together for a cute Open House project!
Of course, each student could simply write one letter!
Mostly, just have fun!
