In this activity, students write to their future self at the end of the school year. This activity is aimed at giving students an opportunity to create a time capsule and within that, their own goals that they can work toward. When students do this, they are more likely to take control and be invested in their learning. Additionally, it gives the teacher an opportunity to know each student personally as well as their writing strengths and weaknesses. At the end of the year, students can open and read their letters to see how much they have grown.
