This unit for Journeys First Grade Reading (2013) contains 60 pages focused on letter writing. There is one letter writing form and one set of directions for each story. Students will learn and use the basic parts of a friendly letter. Students will need to read, recall, and use story facts in writing each letter. These are wonderful independent activities that students can complete during Word Work time. This unit will be a great addition to your curriculum files for the Journeys Reading Program. There is also a version of this unit available for the 2014 Journeys First Grade Reading Program. If you are using either edition of this reading program, you'll want to add the corresponding unit to your weekly routine! Your students will love it!
