Here is an assignment where students are required to write a friendly letter. They can write the letter to the teacher, to their classmates, or I even had them write the letter to a pen pal. The letter includes an introduction, 5 body paragraphs (about hobbies, goals, etc), and a conclusion. A sample letter is included. I used this writing assignment in conjunction with teaching the writing process to my sixth graders the first few weeks of school. They turned out really great!
