Children love the opportunity to write a letter to their next year's teacher. This gives students a chance to share with their new teacher information about themselves. Included in this unit are letter templates that can be duplicated as well as a sample of what may be included in the letter.
A wealth of information can be generated for the child's new teacher by reading the letters from their next year's students. Children love it when their teacher already seems to know about their interests, strengths, hobbies, etc.
