I have used weekly letter writing with my students for years to encourage a tight-knit classroom and promote writing all year long. I write students a letter on Monday (see samples on pages 7-9) and they respond to me by Thursday (see rubric and expectations on pages 3 and4). I have included monthly topics and ideas to get you started (pages 5-6). Have fun!
