NO PREP! This is all that you need for teaching the basics of friendly letter parts, writing and editing! The lesson is done for you!
It is my hope that this will help your students become more familiar with the parts of friendly letters and comfortable with writing one themselves. Most importantly, I feel that this is a great resource to help YOU make your planning and instruction easier.
In my personal classroom, I introduce friendly letters and their parts before doing this activity. Then, I do a “walk-about” around the room. The students visit each of the three letters at different areas of the room and answer the questions on the tri-fold accordingly. After the middle section of the tri-fold is completed, I have them work independently or in partners (up to you) to complete the editing and writing sections on the back. The students tend to like moving around the room, but of course this activity can be changed to however suits you and your students best. I can also see this being a great station activity. It is very versatile because it is pretty self-guided.
As with all of my products, I have designed this to make your life easier. Simply print and go! Let me know if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions.
