PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

“Dear Mr. President” Friendly Letter Writing Unit is an eight-lesson unit for grade 3-5 writing. I created this unit during and after teaching Friendly Letter writing to my own fourth grade students. It was created using the backward-design model of unit creation.

This unit contains everything you need to teach the Friendly Letter format. It takes the students through learning and practicing the following:
• generating ideas
• question mapping (expanding and adding details)
• writing an opening paragraph
• writing a paragraph for questions
• formatting the body
• writing and formatting the header
• writing and formatting the greeting
• writing and formatting the closing
• editing for format, spelling and grammar
• Writing a final draft
• Self-assessing Friendly Letters with a rubric

Each of the 8 lessons contains:

lesson plans
• material list
• lesson goal
• steps for implementation and scaffolding

PowerPoint Presentation Lesson
• full color graphics
• mouse-click slide advancement
• formatted for both PowerPoint 2010 and 1997-2003
• PDF formatted for non-PowerPoint users (each slide is static - animations will not run as they do on the slide shows).

vocabulary cards
• 11 x 4.25 inch anchor cards
