As the year draws to a close, it can be hard to motivate students to produce their best work. By giving them a real audience and a purpose they may surprise you with their enthusiasm and quality of work. If you repeat this activity over a few years, the students begin to look forward to writing and/or receiving the letters.
Inform students that they will be writing a letter to the new class coming into your room in the fall. On the first day, (or sometime in the first week) of school, your new students will receive a letter from your old class and read all about their new grade.
