A simple graphic organizer to help students understand how to write a short letter including a greeting, opening sentence, body, closing sentence, and closing. An example letter is given, showing the correct letter writing format, written from one friend to another. Students read the sample letter, identify the parts of a well-written letter, and then write their own short letter to a friend.
Used by 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students during Reader's Workshop to write a letter to their teacher about books that they are reading. Also used during Writer's Workshop.
