This is a set to help you teach letter writing to your students. Included in this set is a mini-poster labeling the five parts of a letter. There is a writing assignment which asks students to write a letter to someone about a challenge they have overcome. There is a graphic organizer to help plan the writing and a rubric to grade the final letter. I have included an exemplar letter so that students can see what is expected of them. There are also two letter templates included for your students' final drafts.
I designed this to meet 2nd grade Common Core Standards but you can adapt it to meet your grade level.
CCSS Standards Addressed:
L.2.2 Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English capitalization, punctuation, and spelling when writing.
L.2.2b Use commas in greetings and closings of letters
W.2.3 Write narratives in which they recount a well elaborated event or short sequence of events, include details to describe actions, thoughts, and feelings, use temporal words to signal event order, and provide a sense of closure.
