Students will be excited to complete this writing activity! The end product is a letter students will write to themselves in twelfth grade, as they are preparing to graduate from high school. They will include information about their families, their school, and their favorites songs, movies, television shows, etc.! The teacher will save the letters until the year they are graduating, and will mail it to them at that time. This is without a doubt the most popular writing assignment I have ever given- families and students are so excited to receive their letters many years after writing them. It is a voice from the past, and elicits many memories and emotions as they are ready to leave their childhood behind.

~A graphic organizer for the students to plan their letters
~An editable parent letter for the teacher to send home explaining the project
